US Singer-songwriter Sonia Leigh has spent the past four months touring all over the UK with UK based artists Katy Hurt and Broken Witt Rebels. In that time she has released a number of singles off her upcoming record Mad Hatter. Her new songs have captured the hearts of her listeners and none more so than her latest single Shelter due to be released Christmas Eve.
Where most artists put themselves in a box, Sonia Leigh maintains an individuality that is so liberating it extends beyond genre and ventures into a new world of self expression. From her country upbringing to her rebellious city lifestyle, changes have always been a catalyst for creativity. With past success writing songs for Zac Brown Band and most recently Big and Rich, touring across the world with country rockers like Eric Church and a cameo appearance in the hit TV show Nashville where her song When We Are Alone played in the background, it seems that a chapter has been closed and a new one open in her story. Sonia’s most recent projects experiment with new sounds and collaborators, as her music develops into an ever-changing narrative on the human experience.
Talking about the latest single Sonia said “Shelter I co-wrote with Frank Romano in Nashville TN. It was our first write together. I sat facing the wall with a guitar and Frank was on the keys. The vibe in the room was so beautiful it hit me hard. I cried writing this song. I know that what I’m looking for in life is someone to get lost with, someone to see it all with. This song is about finally finding that person.”
The emotive single Shelter with it’s beautiful lap steel is available on Christmas Eve and the album is available to pre-order now ahead of it’s release on January 12th 2018.
“With Leigh’s latest offering she has really bared her soul with some truly sincere and personal songwriting.”
