By all accounts, Sonal Jogia has gone against the grain her entire life…and her musical journey is no exception. Having written and released her first album in her early thirties, this Canadian R&B songstress, who left her home and belongings 8 years ago to live in Spain, has battled through insecurity and conformity head-on… and won.
Her debut EP, Lovely Day, received a nomination for Best Urban Recording of the Year at the Breakout West Awards (Western Canadian Music Awards). Since then, she has performed countless live shows and has also collaborated and shared the stage with renowned Spanish producers and artists. Feeling the need for more independence and to further enhance her creativity, Sonal decided to pick up the acoustic guitar. Within a 9-month period, she began to accompany herself on stage as a solo act.
She recently returned to her hometown of Calgary, Canada to finish writing and recording her latest EP, which is being produced, mixed and mastered by chart topping & platinum selling producer, Spencer Cheyne (Jocelyn Alice, Brett Kissel, Leaving Thomas, Ruben Young).
An instinctive songwriter, Sonal Jogia impresses audiences with her sweet, yet powerful voice and soulful style. Her obvious love for 90’s R&B is infused into every one of her songs, from the catchy melodies to full harmonies, all within tight grooves.
The first single from her latest EP is one that comes straight from the heart… a love song called Alive that she wrote with the help of her guitar. “Being in a state of Love is something that cannot be described in words…it can only be felt. But a song… a song can transmit what words alone never could. A song can awaken feelings inside of us”, Sonal explains. “I hope this song helps to awaken Love in you.”
Alive will be unveiled on September 15th on digital platforms, while Sonal Jogia’s new EP is scheduled for release at the end of this year.
