SUNDAY CLASSIC GTC: SONIA LEIGH – “Jack Is Back”
by Walter Price
Songwriter Sonia Leigh isn’t particularly easy to pigeonhole. As you move from track to track and witness her talent for effortlessly transitioning from classic and modern country, alternative and blues based Rock N’ Roll. At times addictively elegant and sultry and at other times, raucous and ballsy.
I’m knocking down another round
This train done come off the track
I’m overdue for some 80 proof
She’s gone but I ain’t alone
Jack is back
I’m gonna paint this town
Gonna raise a little hell with a long lost friend
Jack is Back
Leigh’s recent single, “Jack Is Back” (2017), is a slow burn bluesy barroom rocker. That whiskey-growl kick in the gut akin to what Pauline Andrès, Cobra Ramone, The Picturebooks are becoming well known for. Check out the infectious track below.

“Where most artists put themselves in a box, Sonia Leigh maintains an individuality that is so liberating it extends beyond genre and ventures into a new world of self-expression. From her country upbringing to her rebellious city lifestyle, changes have always been a catalyst for creativity.” – bio
