“[Sonny] has mastered the skill and created his own unique sound, blending elements of indie, R&B, folk and soul to create something extremely special […] Sonny is definitely one to watch for this year.” – WONDERLAND MAGAZINE
“The 18-year-old singer styles a sound that merges rock and soul with incredible grace and ease.” – NOTION
“Soulful but with a modern feel, Sonny can make pop music sound as deep as the ages, drawing on a fathom-deep well of experience.” – CLASH
Hailing from South Shields, Sonny’s clean-cut aesthetic and raw vocals were heavily influenced by his mother’s love for R&B and soul, and his singer/guitarist father’s adoration for folk and country. Exposed to an impossibly broad range of genres from a young age, at 14-years-old Sonny started gigging around Newcastle, performing anywhere from bars to pubs and open mic nights. This elevated his skills as a performer who exudes charm and is effortlessly confident on stage despite his 18-years-of-age.
Sonny released his debut EP ‘Hopeless Romance’ in 2017 which included the single ‘Princess’ which has now accumulated over 1.7 million Spotify streams and 1.1M views on Facebook and received support from BBC Introducing. ‘Hopeless Romance’ EP also gained accolades from NOTION, CLASH, Wonderland Magazine, Fault Magazine and more.
