"With a looper and guitar, Las Vegas musician Sonia Barcelona is making waves. Disenfranchised with years of studying accounting, the up-and-coming musician ditched the debits and credits at 19 and picked up her ukulele because she knew making music was her calling. She describes herself at that time as being shy and quiet.
After performing at a few events, the desire to further pursue music became apparent. However, the butterflies never completely go away. 'Each performance I’m always afraid. It’s just a matter of putting on a good poker face,' Barcelona says.
You wouldn’t know it by her poised confidence. Barcelona uses her RC-30 looper for solo performances and also plays with a full band.
Her upcoming release "Violent Water" brings a new and bigger sound reflective of her 90s grunge rock influences. With a team of Vegas filmmakers, the music video was a Kickstarter project that was successfully funded and can now be seen at http://youtube.com/soniabarcelona
