It seems that Black Deer Festivals first year was packed with the UK’s favourite artists from across the pond and that absolutely includes Sonia Leigh. One of the coolest women in country music, Sonia played I think three times across the weekend and from what I have heard, each set was packed, some of whom went to all of her sets.
I had shamefully never seen Sonia live, again, not by lack of interest but just down to circumstance. I caught Sonia on The Road House stage. Sonia, as previously mentioned drew a big crowd and took to the stage acoustically. Not being that familiar with Sonia, she blew me away with her raw edgy vocals which were like a combination of Brody Dalle and Melissa Etheridge.
