Oh Sweet Tragedy.Anthems from the Ashes
Sonia V.'s new CD release 'Oh Sweet Tragedy - anthems from the ashes' is a riveting & pure offering of hard edged rock anthems, revealing honest confessions of an artist clinging to faith despite the desperate & trying turns life has taken. Co-produced with the phenomenal Kenny Lewis (Stryper, Michael Sweet) and rocked out with the talents of Michael Sweet (guitars/vocal duet) & Tracy Ferrie (bass) of Stryper, Derek Kerswill (drums) of Unearth, and McKendree Augustus (keys) of SonicFlood, these original tunes penned by Sonia V. come from a place of brokenness and raising one's anthem amidst the ashes & despite the darkness and aftermath of broken dreams. Into a place of hope and finding 'Beauty for Ashes', 'Oh Sweet Tragedy' is a solid rock offering from a credible artist who has earned her place among the standout female rock artists in the industry today. Sonia V.'s former CD 'a thing or 2' includes credits of 'Contemporary Christian Album of the Year' by the Independent Music Awards, followed by numerous chart topping hits, songwriting awards from Gospel Music Association, American Christian Music Awards, VH1, Billboard & International Songwriting Contests, vocalist awards & nominations, as well as countless interviews, features and international radio airplay & commercial licensing opportunities. Despite the attention and breakthrough into the music industry as a prominent independent artist, it would also be one of the most challenging times Sonia faced both as an artist and spiritually. It ended with a long sabbatical from the music business for a few years. With a story to tell about the journey, Sonia V. emerges with the strongest and most transparent works of art of her career to date with the new release 'Oh Sweet Tragedy....anthems from the ashes'.
