Album Notes
Soft Power is the new CD release from San Francisco based vocalist, Sony Holland. The title evokes Sony’s smooth and confident style, a voice that walks a tightrope between vulnerability and strength. These 12 tracks showcase an artist who inhabits her material whether it’s the smokey jazz standard, TIME AFTER TIME, the glistening pop gem, STREETS OF PHILADELPHIA, or the enchanting original, L.A. OF MY DREAMS.

Sony started out busking at Ghirardelli Square and has worked her way through lengthy Asian tours and jazz venues all across the United States. She has opened for George Benson, fronted big bands, performed the National Anthem for the Giants and Dodgers and has been a featured artist at many charitable events. For the past several years Sony has held down a musical residency at the SF Ritz-Carlton with her guitarist/husband, Jerry Holland. Their intricate vocal/guitar arrangements have endeared them to a loyal fan base.

Soft Power was recorded in El Cerrito with bassist, Dan Feiszli, and drummer, David Rokeach. Mr. Feiszli is currently in the band for the hit musical HAMILTON. He also engineered SOFT POWER. Mr. Rokeach is well-known to Bay Area jazz fans and has performed with musical legends ARETHA FRANKLIN and RAY CHARLES. Jerry Holland has a successful track record as a staff-songwriter in Nashville for Mike Curb Music and Warner/Chappell Publishing.

Soft with a powerful message
Sony and Jerry Holland's latest release is a beautifully melded array of lyrical genius in a soft and intimate venue which spreads a message of hope and confidence with each carefully chosen song and lyric. Best Defense and All Rolled Into One written by Jerry Holland help you look at life in a positive manner. A Case Of You and Moon River are simply sublime vocals by Sony Holland. She captures the tunes with clear and concise eloquence. The packaging, photos and title were well thought out and meld beautifully with each track. Another major point for me is that while focusing on the vocals I could clearly here the musicians. This album is a true gem and one that should be shared with friends in an intimate setting while sharing a nice bottle of wine.
