Soni has an absolutely gorgeous voice. Soulful, heartbreaking, timeless and boy can she tell a story in song.
“Happy to Serve” is the first single of her upcoming EP from Buttercuts Records out of the UK and it tells the story of the struggle to survive as an artist…before you make it.
There’s a rawness to this track, a reality, a power. It’s about respect, hard work and the strength to keep walking towards your dreams even when the odds are against you and the road keeps getting longer. Soni’s roots are in London Gospel and her Indian British background gives her a unique perspective to sing her soul out.
“Happy to Serve” is really catchy, a working girl’s anthem, full of gorgeous production, great cello, horns and a brilliant spoken word bridge by Rebel ACA. Soni is based in Huntington Beach, CA, so she’s a local girl, but you can tell her heart is in the UK. There’s just something about British soul. Maybe I’m biased but there’s beautiful clarity to it and a deep understanding of passion and pain. I love the EP, “Savage” is actually my favorite track but “Happy to Serve” is a brilliant single. Hope to hear more of this UK/CA soul songstress!!!
