Vocalist Sony Holland celebrates the release of her brand new CD Swing, Bossas, Ballads & Blues" at the famed Blue Note in Greenwich Village. The new disc features 8 original songs and 8 standards and was recorded by Grammy winning engineer Leslie Ann Jones with some of the Bay Area's finest musicians and arrangers. National radio promotion for the disc begins in June and it is available online now at Amazon, CD Baby, iTunes and select retail outlets. Ms. Holland will also perform CD release concerts at the Rrazz Room in San Francisco (June 29th & 30th), the Stanford Jazz Festival (July 6th) and at Catalina's Jazz Club in Los Angeles on July 8th.
With a style that is once sophisticated and emotionally direct, her interpretations of the great American songbook show a deep respect and love for the material while adding an unmistakable spark of personality. Originally from northern Minnesota, Sony fell in love with jazz while spending a year in Paris and has earned a devoted following worldwide with her renditions of standards, contemporary classics, and original songs. She has made San Francisco her home since 2003, although she now performs internationally, including extensive concert tours and residencies in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Bangkok. Swing, Bossas, Ballads & Blues is an intimate set including some of Sony's favorite songs from many different eras and musical traditions, which she brings together with impeccable musicianship and true feeling.
She delivers passion and elegance through every phrase... The voice is warm... full, and engaging. Sony is becoming a favorite request from our world wide listening audience..." Dr. Mike Methany, RadioIO
