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.
Hannah Thomas is bringing her own style of music to the roots rock world with a voice reminiscent of young Bonnie Raitt, grit and bravado that draws comparisons to Melissa Etheridge, and the southern rock soul of Chris Robinson.
The 26 year-old musician has been playing professionally for more than a decade, touring with Indigo Girls and opening for or sharing the stage with Pat Benatar, Melissa Etheridge, Kristian Bush (of Sugarland), Terri Clark, Lydia Loveless, Chely Wright, Michelle Chamuel, Capital Cities, Shawn Mullins, Michelle Malone, Randall Bramblett and more.
Born and raised in Covington, Georgia, Thomas grew up on classic rock and country music: "my dad introduced me to Aerosmith and Black Sabbath, and with my mom I would listen to a lot of Patsy Cline, Tina Turner and The Judds. Later on I discovered 90s alternative". Thomas (and those close to her) will admit that ever since she was able to walk and talk, she has never wanted to do anything except perform.
Thomas's various influences can be heard on her new album produced by Lester Nuby III (St. Paul and The Broken Bones) in Birmingham, Alabama. "Fault Line" is her first full-length LP since 2012, spanning the gap between Atlanta's eclectic roots rock revival and the soulful, classic rock sound of Muscle Shoals. Thomas is joined by an all-star band comprised of Brandon Bush on keys (Sugarland/Train), Sadler Vaden on guitar (Drivin N Cryin/Jason Isbell), Jimbo Hart on bass guitar (Jason Isbell) and Chad Gamble on drums (Jason Isbell). The LP includes a song co-written with Michelle Malone. Malone plays lead guitar on that single, alongside Gerry Hansen on drums (Chuck Leavell, Randall Bramblett, Shawn Mullins) and Michael C. Steel on bass (Randall Bramblett). The album also features guest vocals by Terri Clark and Amy Ray of Indigo Girls.
