Instead of trying to become the next internet sensation, she made treks over to Paris to learn and play with musicians and artists on the street.

Sonia Stein Interview

The word demented means “to act or behave irrationally due to anger or stress”. However there is something provocative at the way London-based vocalist and musician Sonia Stein sings about the topic, especially when it relates to relationships. There is a striking boldness within the tone of her milky voice that resonates without having to be overly brash. Her vivid lyrics, written like that of storytelling folk singer, reels you into her quiet storm of thoughts, making you “get it” and almost instantly side with her emotions. The grey area between Stein’s reality and illusion of feelings in her music is only the crosswalk to a beautiful place, no matter the direction.
