“There is an exuberance and passion shining from SONiA as she warms the audience with her humanity, charm and a touch of glamour.” ~ Roger Dietz, Sing Out Magazine.
SONiA (Rutstein) disappear fear is one voice, one guitar, bending sound and light into her own songs helping fans leap to their feet for nearly 30 years. Touring the world with 18 award winning albums delivering powerful songs that challenge injustice, performed with passion and hope, she has gained a devoted and growing fan base in over 20 countries.
Frequently described as the “Female Dylan,” SONiA is the recipient of the Coin Of Honor from a joint coalition of United States military for her humanitarian efforts. She has received the GLAMA (Gay and Lesbian Music Awards) for Female Artist of the year and the GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian American Anti Defamation) Award for Best Album to name a few.
Writing songs in Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic, German and in multiple genres from blues to middle eastern to country and western she has sold over a million units. SONiA’s latest double CD “LIVE at MAXiMAL” was in the first round running Grammy for Folk Album of the year and received the nomination for Best Live Album by the IMA (Independent Music Awards, USA).
From the Opera House in Sydney to the bomb shelters in the Middle East to the Woody Guthrie Festival and Phil Ochs nights to dusty living room corners, SONiA has had the thrill of sharing the stage with many of her heroes including Bruce Springsteen, Peter, Paul and Mary, Chris Thile, Sarah McLachlan, Emmylou Harris, Ferron, Sheryl Crow, Pete Seeger, Pansy Division and many more. She is endorsed by 7 international manufacturers including the SONiA Signature Model Santa Cruz Guitar, Shubb Capos, Fishman Transducers, Audix Microphones, John Pearse Strings, D’Adarrio, and Monster Cables.
