Sonja Sleator has established herself as one of Northern Ireland’s most recognisable singer/songwriters.
Her story driven songs are making her one to watch in the Irish music scene and have led to appearances on local radio, television and at festivals including Hard Working Class Heroes.
Her EP, ADAMS, released in 2017, has been described as “one of the best releases of the year” by Dublin 98FM’s John Barker. Lead single, Calla, has received radio play on Dublin 98FM, Near FM Sessions, Downtown Radio and Blast106 among others.
In 2018, Sonja released Ghost, the first single off a new EP titled Violent Strawberry. It achieved airplay across three continents, and was used by festival organisers to promote her performance at Hard Working Class Heroes.

Hotpress Magazine - "While her melodies are rootsy and simple, she is a great storyteller - drawing audiences in with lyrics about drunken crises and boyfriends 'who pissed off to London'."
Nialler9 – “catchy upbeat melody with narrative lyrics…”
GiggingNI – “The raw emotion throughout is hard to deny and immediately sucks you in.”
Chordblossom – “Toe-tappingly infectious…one to watch!”
