    It was great working with Sonia!

  2. Review by Marlee Records

    Sonia is a fantastic singer! Always in tune and her voice is so personal ... But the best of all is her creativity and her imagination that brings the songs to an incredible quality level. After twelve years working on many albums, eps, singles ... I can assure you that Sonia is a guarantee of personality and vibe for any song where she works. TOP!
