A blend of warm well rounded classy vocals set to a variety of midtempo funky socio-soul tunes. Like Sade's music with Marvin Gaye's "Whats goin'on" message.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born and raised in Detroit Michigan, a city infamous for,"The Motown Sound",the automotive industry and gospel music. LaSonya began her singing career at 3 years of age. "LaSonya would pick up socks, a broom, a stick, or anything that would fit into her hands as a microphone", recalls LaSonya's mom. At age thirteen, LaSonya began her singing career with "The Spirits of Truth", a local gospel group that performed in various churches throughout the Detroit area.

The turning point came when LaSonya joined The City Kids Reporatory Co., based in New York City, where she performed in various shows with Demi Moore, Brandy, Brian McKnight and Bruce Willis. After one of the shows, Bruce Willis approached LaSonya and said" You do a great thing with your voice. You should never stop singing".

LaSonya's music stems from her ideas about people's disconnection and reconnection with love, life and the world. Such is the case with "This is How We Livin". A song inspired by a neighbour who was abusive to his wife.

LaSonya"s influences are quite diverse. They range from Sarah Vaughn, Sade and Donny Hathaway to the Indigo Girls and James Taylor.

Reviews by Chris Wells, internet DJ/Editor for Echoes Magazine and Soul24-7.com (London Based)

"The title track has some surprisingly feisty lyrics about street life from the woman's point of view, something we need to hear more about after so much macho crap from the hip hoppers. The best cut on this eight-track sampler, though is undoubtly "This is how we livin'", another shot of reality set over a midtempo and yet decidedly funkly little track. In an age that reveres the like of Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, LaSonya could definitely be another big talent made good."

Where Have You Been?
I first heard your music on the DJ JAZZY JEFF album "THE SOUL MIXTAPE". I send out a Song of the Day everyday to a group of friends/family from all over and I decided to use "ENDLESSLY" today for Woman's Wednesday. I've always liked the song and decided today to check into your website. I was able to listen to some of the tracks and I'm on the web right now looking to purchase the cd. Keep up the good work and give us a shout when any new music is dropping. Amazing voice...Amazing vibe...exactly what the music world is missing !
