SONIA LEIGH (unsigned, unpublished, no management) -- If you're NOT a fan of country-tinged, bluesy folk-rock from female singer-songwriters, stop reading now. If you can recognize talent in an artist like this and imagine all the incredible ways to market them, Sonia Leigh is worth a listen. She's 28, she's based in Atlanta, and we had a chance to catch her first ever Los Angeles performance a few weeks back -- super super good. Put this girl in front of KT Tunstall's fanbase...have her tour with Melissa Etheridge, hell, get her on a bill with a John Mayer or Ray LaMontagne and she'll win over all of their fans too! Check Sonia's MySpace page for gig listings and a couple of really well done songs.
