Sonya has been influenced by her studies in literature and draws inspiration from poetry.

Having studied theatre and taken part in devised and classical performances in England, the element of theatricality permeates her lyrics, recording sessions, and stage presence. Her past songs have already been aired on radio stations in Germany and Switzerland. Being an avid learner, she is currently developing her skills as a pianist. Her goal is to move people profoundly and reach a worldwide audience as a solo artist.
