Live Performance of "When We Are Alone" Featured on Nash Unplugged
(Nashville, TN) – Coming straight off her smash summertime single, "Put It In Your Pocket," Sonia Leigh delivers yet again with her latest single, "When We Are Alone," which debuted this weekend on Sirius XM The Highway's On The Horizon. Co-written and produced by Danny Myrick, Leigh says the single "pushed creative boundaries." An exclusive live acoustic performance of "When We Are Alone" is currently featured on Nash Unplugged HERE.
"When We Are Alone" is available now on iTunes HERE.
An emerging artist, Leigh has already demonstrated her prolific songwriting skills with the well-known hits "Sweet Annie" and "Goodbye In Her Eyes." Her special brand of female-attitude and modern country has been seen alongside such well-known names as Eric Church, Eli Young Band, Loretta Lynn and Willie Nelson.
ABOUT SONIA: Sonia Leigh relocated to Nashville in 2012 from her longtime home of Atlanta, Georgia and quickly won over the hearts of audiences and industry alike with her gritty vocal delivery and bold, disarmingly honest approach to songwriting. She found success in Music City with the release of 1978 December (distributed through Zac Brown's Southern Ground Label). Her Summer independent release, "Put It In Your Pocket," debuted as a Highway Find on Sirius XM's The Highway and climbed to the Top 20s on their Hot 45 Countdown. She has performed extensively worldwide as both a headliner and support act for such well-known names as Eric Church, Eli Young Band, Loretta Lynn, and Willie Nelson. Also an accomplished songwriter, she co-wrote the Zac Brown Band's smash hits "Goodbye In Her Eyes" and "Sweet Annie." More information & tour dates can be found at: www.SoniaLeigh.com
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."
