Today, we welcome back to Studio A the singer/songwriter SONiA disappear fear.  A Baltimore-based, cause-driven artist, her songs explore the human spirit and address global humanitarian issues. She travels frequently to perform in cities around the world.

Over the past 30 years, SONiA has shared the stage with many popular music icons, from Pete Seeger and Joan Baez to superstars such as Bruce Springsteen, Emmy Lou Harris, and Sheryl Crowe.

The last time SONiA joined us here in the Midday studio was in December 2018, and she’d just released the CD, By My Silence, a collection of songs heavily influenced by her travels in Europe.  Her newest CD is a collection of songs from Small House, No Secretsa musical co-written by SONiA and Jody Nusholtz.  (Our theater critic, J. Wynn Rousuck, reviewed the musical  here on Midday when it played at Fells Point Corner Theatre, as part of the Baltimore Playwrights Festival this past spring.)

SONiA will be playing her only USA concert of the year in the Baltimore area on Thursday, November 7 at  7:30pm at The Gordon Center for the Performing Arts in Owings Mills, Maryland.  For ticket info, click here
