The performer above, Sonia Leigh, is a local product who has the talent to hit it big, even if her persona and approach don’t exactly lend themselves to the superficial demands of commercial music today. Her newly released album is titled “December 1978,” which also happens to be the month of her birth, which also makes me feel reaaaallllly old. But her music makes up for that.
And just for the hell of it, and because it was filmed in Little Five Points, and because it shows some street characters I recognize, I’ll include a second Sonia Leigh video free of charge. Enjoy the music, folks, and enjoy the brisk fall weather.
