Sonia Bernardo is featured on two songs on the Phil Manzanera album The Sound Of Blue.
Sonia is a London based British/Portuguese singer/songwriter that has been turning heads all over the city. Her powerful soulful voice is tinged with a Fado weep mixed with Bossa-Nova simplicity and jazzy embellishments. Her slick song writing slips into jazz standard-esque vibes in a heart-beat and then back to reality and the moment with her poised lyrics about 21st century people and relationships. Bernardo has caught the attention of Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music) and has been invited to be part of several of his projects debuting in 2015.
On working with Phil: "I was playing in a bar in Kensal and Andres (engineer at Phils studio) recorded a clip of me playing and singing. He showed it to Phil and then Phil invited me to be part of the project. I said yes!"
Sonia is currently recording her first EP and getting ready to play at some festivals this summer.
