Sony Holland has headlined concerts at many of the premier jazz clubs and festivals in the U.S. and Asia, working with top musicians in every setting from quartet to Big Band. Her bell-toned voice and stylish delivery has won over fans and critics wherever she goes. Since relocating back to San Francisco last November, Sony has been unquestionably one of the Bay Area’s hardest working singers. Along with her guitarist/husband, Jerry Holland, she has held down a 3-night per/week residency at the J.W. Marriott Union Square and filled in the rest of her calendar with performances all over NorCal.
Sony loves the heavy schedule. “Performing is the reward for all of the hard work I do every day in preparation,” she says. “It is very satisfying to move people with a song.” As Joshua Klipp of the Bay Area Reporter writes, “No matter how near or far we sat from Sony, it was always as if she sang just to us. Every song felt fresh and personal. There was no sense of repetition, only warmth, joy, and Sony's profound desire to give her gift to anyone who would listen.”
