Belfast-based Belfast-based Sonja Sleator shakes off her traditional singer/songwriter label with the release of her second EP,
ADAMS’ six tracks are inspired by the 28-year-old’s packed schedule of traveling, touring and writing undertaken after her debut EP I.D was released in 2014.
The lead track, Pour The Vodka, opens ADAMS with a statement of intent – that this is a huge step forward for the songwriter best known for her solo acoustic style. Pour The Vodka, is followed by Calla which has received airplay on Belfast’s Blast106FM, Lisburn’s 98FM and Dublin’s 98FM. ADAMS has been described as “one of the best releases of the year” by Totally Irish 98’s John Barker.
Sonja spent time gigging and writing in Nashville, New Orleans, LA and San Francisco, in addition to her regular shows in Belfast and Dublin. Those influences are most noticed in final track Cambria Moon, inspired by her time on the west coast.
Recorded at Lisburn’s Millbank Studios with acclaimed producer Michael Mormecha (Mojo Fury, Trú), ADAMS is bursting with the hooks, melodies and autobiographical lyrics Sonja has become best known for.
Sonja’s gripping live show has helped her secure support slots with Northern Irish blues singer Kaz Hawkins, and The Answer frontman, Cormac Neeson.
