A Bit About Sonja...

A born performer, Sonja started singing and acting professionally at the age of 11 years old. Her career started with two appearances on Montreals' CFCF-TV show, "Tiny Talent", followed soon after by CBC radio shows and live concerts in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa.

Her reputation as a powerful and solid vocalist grew with the years, landing her studio session work singing jingles, back-ups, doing tours and television. She sang with several different bands, opening for Smokey Robinson, Glen Cambell, Charlie Bird, comedian Charlie Callus amoung others, at some of Montreal and Toronto's most prestigeous venues.

After winning the Montreal Vocal Wars Contest in 1986, she signed a recording contract with J.C. Records and went on to record the hit single "Can't Live", under the record company psuedonym "Suzy Q". It soared quickly to no.# 10 on the 1986 U.S. Billboard Dance Charts and stayed at no.#1 in England for a solid month, leading to a recording contract at that time with Atlantic Records. 

In the late 1980's, Sonja took a dubbing workshop and began scoring voice-over roles. With a reputation as a very versatile actor, able to play multiple characters in the same production, and offering a broad vocal palette of age range, texture and accents, Sonja has become one of Canada's voice-over elite. She lends her talent to animattion, commercials, documentariies, video/computer games, talking toys, Mocap sessions, and live action dubbing. 

"While living in the rural town of Hemmingford Quebec from 1990 to 1995, I became a regular performer with the lHemmingford ShoeString Theatre, under the direction of Vincent Irifino. I had a blast singing and ad-libbing my way through 5 wonderful seasons of musical comedy." 

Aside from her voice-over work, Sonja is currently the co-founder/co-producer of Montreal's annual "Rock For Peace" concert, is in production for her latest new c.d. of original rootsey pop music, continues her studio session work and  live concerts throughout Quebec, and lives in her beautiful  mountain top home in Rigaud, Quebec.
