Biography

Multitalented singer songwriter Sonia Johnson gained recognition with albums such as Le Carré de nos amours (Juno Winner, Vocal Jazz Album of the Year 2012), Triades – with singers Annie Poulain and Charles Biddle Jr. (ADISQ Nomination 2013 and Junos 2014), Le cœur à l’endroit, her previous solo project co-created with pianist and arranger Marianne Trudel. Graduated from the University of Montreal with a Master’s degree in jazz interpretation and composition, she has had successful collaborations as a composer or singer with artists such as Laila Biali, Félix Stüssi & Les Malcommodes, Steven Taetz, Vincent Réhel, Rodrigo Simoes and Orchestre National de Jazz de Montréal.

After carrying out a pilgrimage of free experimentation between jazz and pop music, Sonia is revealing herself between shadow and light with Chrysalis, her first album in English to be launched on November 15th 2019. From the slumber of the caterpillar to the flight of the butterfly, she’s deploying multi-colored wings on this audacious musical road trip. Poetic and soulful, definitely slowly woven with long silk yarn!

Critics

« Beaucoup de couleurs et une voix enchanteresse qui vous séduira »

Christophe Rodriguez, Le Journal de Montréal

« Accrocheuses et envoûtantes, sans jamais céder à la facilité d’une certaine pop racoleuse… »

Stanley Péan, ICI Musique, Radio-Canada

« Le cœur à l’endroit séduit par la qualité des textes et des arrangements musicaux »

Hélène Boucher, NigthLife

« With beautiful texts from the daily life, performed in a very special and unique way. The beautiful voice of Sonia Johnson looks to me as dancers in a ballet. They move smoothly, elegant and confident. It looks like they hardly need any ground. »
