Sonny is a woman with a past as colourful and engaging as her music. From a childhood steeped in sound she sang with her Samoan father before leaving NZ at age 18 to become a songwriter. This leap of faith would see her settle in London, sign to Warner Chappell Publishing UK and Siren Records UK as a solo artist, recording two albums and selling a modest 100,000 records while singing alongside luminaries as varied as Duran Duran and Sir Bob Geldof.
The love of family finally brought her home to NZ in 2010 after sojourns in Milan and Los Angeles. The lure of the recording studio has spawned her newest EP Movin On, which is the fruits of a co-production with NZ musician Lake South.
Movin On is her first new studio recording after a long hiatus and touches on indie pop, electronica, hints of R&B while infused with a Balearic vibe that’s hard to pigeonhole. Sonny has created an alternative record with a strong, underlying pop sensibility made with surefooted craft and rediscovered creativity. The Movin On EP reflects an artist drawing from a life of truly unique sensibilities both in and out of the vocal booth.
The first two singles from the EP ‘Demons’ and ‘No Means No‘ are available to stream on all platforms.
