Music & Other Stories Presents: Tonia Soulbird
Introducing Tonia Soulbird, a singer I came across last year at a gig in Hoxton. When she was on stage I fell in love with her voice immediately and wanted to follow her journey.
Growing up going to church, Tonia was surrounded by music from a very young age, and ultimately found herself singing to her friends and rapping on the school bus all the time. Yes, she even tried out being a Grime MC, but you can find out more about that in the interview!
So far her journey allowed her to grace stages at London’s renowned Jazz Cafe, Camden Assembly and many more. Tonia has a very bright future ahead of her without a doubt – her strong, passionate and soulful vocals, which undeniably remind you of Lauryn Hill, and her uplifting lyrics are just exactly what we need in our lives.
and due to high demand (just kidding), our newly formed rap duo’s first freestyle 😉
