A Conversation with SONIA ELISHEVA Mark-Xtreme
British singer-songwriter Sonia Elisheva appeared on the scene in December 2020 featuring as a guest vocalist on swing-hop producer LVDS’ debut album: “Golden Days.”
Sonia’s distinctive vocals quickly captured the attention of other big producers in the Electro-Swing world. Working with Berlin based record label “Electro Swing Thing’, Sonia went on to feature on several other collaboration singles throughout the year, one of which landed her a place on a coveted Spotify editorial playlist.
In May 2021, Sonia earned a nomination at the prestigious Maastricht Jazz Awards in the Netherlands for her cover of Grover Washington Jr’s timeless classic: “Mr Magic”
By the end of 2021, Sonia had given her Electro-Swing roots a makeover with her debut independent release: “HUMMINGBIRD”. The five track soul and jazz EP was recorded completely remotely with various producers from around the world and a guest appearance from grammy-award nominated saxophonist Aníbal Seminario.
