About Sonia Sophia

Sonia is from Vancouver, British Columbia and is currently a Communications student at SFU. When she's not busy with school or work, she co-runs a music blog, networks with music industry individuals, promotes shows, interviews bands, jams with her friends, attends as many concerts as physically possible, works on some art and photography, and volunteers for awesome independent organizations. Pretty much all she hears, thinks, talks, and cares about is music, music, and wait for it...music. In the future, she would love to travel more, meet more amazing people and to continue being an enormous music nerd as she continually expands her music collection.
