From the age of seventeen, folk singer-songwriter Sonny Casey has been busking and gigging her songs all over Europe. Raised in Galway, Ireland, her music is influenced heavily by poetry and storytelling. Her low raspy voice, gentle guitar picking and narrative lyricism reveals a depth and intimacy to her songs that goes beyond her twenty three years. In the silence and space between her words she takes her audience on a journey where they can calmly escape this world and reach a place where it’s safe to feel things.
In 2020, Sonny moved to Berlin and supported by those who'd fallen for her music along her travels, she ran a successful crowdfunding campaign, raising over 6,000 euro to record her first professional EP with a band. Produced by Rotem Fisher, with Tom Osander (Damien Rice, Lisa Hannigan) on percussion, Conor Cunningham (Villagers, David Keenan) on woodwind and piano, Emidio Mazzilii on bass, Jean-Louise Parker on strings, Regardt Boot Scheepers on guitar, the songs from her upcoming EP 'Phoebe' have been transformed from bones to flesh.
Her first official single 'A Saving Grace' is out now.
