Sonnet Simmon, a.k.a. Sonnet, has a fresh new look and sound that is gaining attention with her new soulful pop-infused single “Half Your Heart.” Sonnet delivers a fresh perspective of pop, illuminated with pulsating electronic beats and themes that connect across emotional lines and frame her eight-song self-titled debut. The album was released on September 25. On the album, she incorporates traces of some of her greatest inspirations — Joni Mitchell, Ella Fitzgerald and Ani Difranco.
Throughout her childhood, Sonnet lived a gypsy-like lifestyle with her mother and sister, travelling around Europe and Asia. Born in Greece, she eventually travelled from Switzerland to India with various stops in between. During her nomadic adventures music was her solace, her rhythmical soul mate. She attended Hamilton Music Academy of Music (a performing arts high school in LA) and also received a Jazz Voice degree from UCLA.
