A Juno Award for Sonia Johnson!
Fiery jazz singer Sonia Johnson has won a Juno for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year for Le carré de nos amours. Sonia Johnson accepted the award with joy and gratitude before an audience of prominent members of the Canadian music industry at the Ottawa gala on March 31, 2012.
This album, her second, was sung entirely in French and performed with her trio of outstanding musicians (Luc Beaugrand, Frédéric Alarie, and Camil Bélisle). The collection features compositions by the young singer-song writer as well as collaborations with a number of renowned musicians, singers and composers. Combining poetry with jazz improvisation, Sonia has created an enchanting album whose powerful magic won the jury's hearts.
Sonia Johnson is active on Québec’s exciting jazz scene, and always has projects on the go. She is currently at work on two new albums that are set for release at the end of 2012 and in 2014.
