"Named Best of Vegas, Sonia Barcelona has opened for the likes of SALES, Japanese Breakfast, George Clanton, Deap Vally, and Pearl Charles. She describes herself at that time [she began performing] as being shy and quiet. You wouldn’t know it by her poised confidence. 'Each performance I’m always afraid. It’s just a matter of putting on a good poker face,' Barcelona says. Her 2019 debut album "Bitter Melon" brings a new and bigger sound reflective of her 90s grunge rock influences."
