Sonia Rao is constantly on the road, bringing her multi-instrumental talents - she grew up studying violin, piano, guitar, and flute - into the world of alternative pop. The Indian-American artist's songs have been featured on more than 35 shows including MTV’s Jersey Shore, ABC’s The Vineyard, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Through a uniquely direct and loyal relationship with her fans and the successful use of crowdfunding, Sonia has independently raised over $40,000 to fund the recording of three albums. But dig into Sonia’s music and you’ll discover she’s an ever-forward-moving vessel of inspiration.
Appropriately, at a recent TEDx event, she was asked to perform and speak about gender equality, just one of the issues she holds dear.
Moving into 2016, Sonia plans to take her new songs on the road for a national release tour set to kick off on August 3rd and culminate with a performance at TEDxLA on December 2nd.
