Sony got her start in San Francisco by busking at Pier 39, meeting locals and people from all over the world. “Busking led to many friendships and performance opportunities,” she recalls. “I got my first dates at the KRML Jazz and Blues Club in Carmel through busking and at Jazz At Pearl’s in North Beach.”
Ms. Holland sings for many of the Bay Areas top social events, benefits, festivals and gatherings. She held a 3 year residency performing at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton SF. She headlines at clubs such as Yoshi’s, the RRazz Room, Feinstein’s and SF Jazz and plays in Los Angeles and New York where she has recorded and performed with A-list musicians at premier venues. She toured in Asia for a year which included a stint at Tokyo’s famous New York Bar.
“I’ve found myself in a variety of situations. It keeps things interesting. From fronting big bands to singing in tiny venues with my duo, I love it all.” Sony has performed the National Anthem for the S.F. Giants and L.A. Dodgers. She has released several critically acclaimed CDs that have landed her on the national jazz charts. The SF Chronicle calls her 'a decidedly modern jazz diva’ and the LA Times proclaimed that her voice ‘drips with honey’. The Minnesota born singer never stops working at her craft.
Recently Sony has been performing tribute concerts to Linda Ronstadt and Dusty Springfield for enthusiastic audiences. “This was something that started out as a personal vocal challenge during the pandemic. Learning and covering both repertoires wasn’t easy, but it’s gotten me to use parts of my voice I didn’t even know I had!” She’s also been using her unique blend of vocal power and finesse to sing original songs written by her guitarist/husband, Jerry Holland. The couple met on a blind date in Nashville shortly after Jerry’s song ‘Friends’ hit the top of the Billboard Country charts for Atlantic artist, John Michael Montgomery.
Through it all she’s discovered that fans respond to good music whatever the genre. “I want to put on a good show for my audience every time I walk on stage. That's the reward I get for all of the work I do before the first note of each performance.”
