Sonia Leigh is carving a unique path that winds in and out of country music. Her genre-jumping influences are on full display in her own music, which makes room for everything from pop melodies and country storytelling to the no-rules spirit of rock & roll. Back in her adopted hometown of Nashville, she's become a popular songwriter on Music Row, with a pair of #1 hits to her name — Zac Brown Band's "Goodbye in Her Eyes" and "Sweet Annie," both featured on the Grammy- winning album Uncaged. Leigh has proven to be a shapeshifter, releasing the timely dark pop anthems “Live Like Ghosts”, and "Spider In The Roses" The latest pair of singles featuring the mysterious Rob The Man. Her independent release “When We Are Alone” was featured in the hit television show Nashville and landed her a cameo. Her new independent release "Jack Is Back" out now is the first single to drop from her anticipated full length album due out fall of 2017.
In the days of AM radio music only had one genre, today there are labels for all different kinds of music, but Hannah Thomas has never liked labels, or playing just one kind of music. Amy Ray (of the Indigo Girls) describes Hannah's music best. (Hannah has) "the soul of old country, and that will always be there, but she's also a diehard rocker with some punk thrown in the mix" (Spring 2013 issue Georgia Music Magazine)
And Hannah has been playing that music for everyone who will listen. Having played over 200 shows in the past 18 months in more places than she can count, she also made time to record the 7 songs on her newest studio CD, "Goodbye on Wasted Time"
"Music is all I think about" says Thomas. And you can hear that dedication in her songs. From the soulful bluesy "Church on Friday" to the tale of life in the country ("Watch Out for the Deer") to rockers like "Goodbye on Wasted Time and "Pacifier" (the latter featuring Amy Ray on guest vocals) Hannah keeps her audience's attention by never having two songs sound the same.
And there is no denying Hannah has what it takes to move to the next level. Eddie Owen (founder Eddie's Attic, now at Georgia's Red Clay Theater) was asked about Hannah for a recent issue of Georgia Music Magazine and said "For any performing songwriter to advance through the levels, several common variables are required – talent, an unending discipline and work ethic, no hesitancy in self-assurance and self-promotion, and an unending desire to learn and become better. If one has all that there is still the 'being in the right place at the right time' factor. Hannah has the first four factors, so when that opportunity comes, she'll be ready."
