Sony Holland Quintet: CD Release Party

Oct 15
Joe Henderson Lab

Soft Power is the new CD release from San Francisco based vocalist, Sony Holland. The title evokes Sony’s smooth and confident style, a voice that walks a tightrope between vulnerability and strength. The albums 12 tracks showcase an artist who inhabits her material whether it’s the smokey jazz standard, "Time After Time," the glistening pop ballad, "Streets of Philadelphia," or the enchanting original, "Best Defense."

Sony started out busking at Ghirardelli Square and has worked her way through lengthy Asian tours and premier jazz venues all across the United States. She has opened for George Benson, fronted big bands, performed the National Anthem for the San Francisco Giants and has been a featured artist at many benefit concerts. For the past several years Sony has held down a musical residency at the SF Ritz-Carlton with her guitarist/husband, Jerry Holland. Their intricate vocal/guitar arrangements have endeared them to a loyal fanbase around the world. The new album was recorded in El Cerrito with bassist, Dan Feiszli and drummer, David Rokeach.
