THE TIME IS ‘NOW’ FOR SONYA TITUS
Singer-songwriter, Sonya Titus releases debut single ‘Now’
A female counterpart to the summery stylings of Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson, Sonya Titus combines classic song-writing with innovative, hopeful lyrics that envelop her listeners time and again.
With a youthful laid-back style reminiscent of Colbie Caillat and Taylor Swift, songstress Sonya cites a wide range of influences. Her organic talent has been nurtured from a young age. Travelling between the US, Australia, Norway, New Zealand and now, London, Sonya has allowed her art to develop naturally, taking in influences across the board including Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morisette, Eva Cassidy and Shania Twain.
Now 26, Sonya is ready to release her self-penned debut ‘Now’. The song, which highlights an optimism in living in the moment, showcases both Sonya’s skilled guitar playing and beautifully smooth vocals.
Sonya explains of her first offering:
“I wrote this song because I need to keep reminding myself to stop wishing away the present moment. It's a song about celebrating yourself right now and not trying to be more like anyone else but yourself...not living in the past or too far in the future...we need to wake up and enjoy the here and now”.
Sonya has been praised for her live performance, an arena in which she really comes alive. The talented song-writer has capitalised on her live talent, working with the best live musicians to form her band – an integral part of Sonya’s live show.
Sonya’s lead guitarist Chris Staines has performed with some of the biggest names in music, including Pete Townshend, Asia and Primal Scream, whilst her percussion team Martin Ditcham and Wol Webster, have worked with musicians including Worlds Apart, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, The Rolling Stones, Sade and members of The Kinks between them.
This combination of live musicianship and song-writing talent have led to sold out gigs in Ronnie Scott’s in recent months and Sonya has already been tipped for festivals this year, ensuring her star continues to rise in 2013.
