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.

Since then, she’s developed the confidence, melodic mastery and vocal range that have won her admirers from here to Beijing.
Daphne didn’t plan a career in music. But as a student at DePaul University in Chicago, she found herself perfor ming at open mic nights, which led to regular Chicago gigs and, eventually, a decision to leave school and hit the road. So she assembled a band and began playing 200 shows a year across the United States.
Daphne released her independent EP Matter of Time in September 2007; in a twist of fate, Vanguard Records head Kevin Welk heard a track on an American Airlines flight. This led to a record deal in 2008 and the release of her second EP, Exhibit A. To record her first full-length album, Daphne headed to the hills of Tennessee. She released What to Say in 2010, which was co -produced by Tim Lauer and Grammy winner Gary Paczosa. Album number two, Because I Can, came out in 2011 and reached the number two spot on iTunes’ Top 40 Singer/Songwriter Chart.
