Sonia Serin’s performance can be described as a new cool wave of FRESH UPBEAT ACOUSTICA!
Her 1st E.P Everyone in Small Doses, was released in Melbourne in May 2015. The E.P was described as a memoir of her time living in London from 2009-2011. A time where she remembers 'running fast' in pursuit of chasing aspirations, dreams and a constant feeling of having to 'make up for lost time'. Her lyrics from this e.p describes a very strong love yet turbulent relationship with the UK. Both emotionally and spiritually. The beauty of finding warmth, solace and true lifelong connections with friends in a city which was at times brutally cold and overwhelming. In a very short space of time Sonia connected and collaborated with some of London’s most current and distinguished musicians. She played and headlined many venues throughout the UK (london, brighton, Kent, Cambridge, Wales): The Ronnie Scott Bar, The Spice of Life, Camden Callings: The Enterprise, The Courtyard and The Stage Door.
She is currently preparing for recording her second EP: 'UNRESOLVED' , due to be released in March 2019. She describes this EP as 'the one' derived from many tears, post relationships ending, the art of healing and finding one self again on new fresh ground with fresh perspectives. The track 'Pink moon', is the analogy reflecting significance of self love and a 'new era', cycle or reference point in her life. Coming out of a very emotional time the past couple of years, dealing with accumulated grief and is open about battling depression through some time now ; the music will have very honest, raw and moving piano sketches collaborating with haunting deep cello tones and soulful soprano voices.
Another song which will be on the E.P is 'Syria'. This featured instrumental is a reflection of the polarising times we live in. The stories behind the piano notes symbolise the ancestral lineages, untold grief surfacing, archetypal patterns waiting for release and healing.
Sonia has joined one of Melbournes' most exciting choirs and you will hear extraordinary layers and harmonies supporting the e.p. It will hopefully bring the gifts of many world's colliding. Sonia aims to tour the UK and Europe In August 2019.
