Sonia and Disappear Fear to perform in Asbury Park

Leslie Jordan

Sonia and Disappear FearRhythm, balance and focus describe the engaging music of Baltimore’s Sonia and Disappear Fear.  Her music has messages of liberation, equality, peace and respect and will surely draw you in and take you on a fun ride.

With songs titled “Grass for the Lamb” and “Turtle Flowers” (from Me, Too, 1999) or “Sugar Cane” (from No Bomb Is Smart, 2005), “Big Giant Planes” (Tango, 2007) and “Princess and the Honeybee” (Broken Film, 2013), this could be a kids’ nursery rhyme singalong, and sing you will. Sonia’s message bounces between childlike frolic to deeper messages that are profound to all of us, old and young.

Check out Disappear Fear’s years of discography. You will feel the rhythm deep inside, the yin and the yang, and the balance of truth. My recommendation is the new CD, Broken Film, which features the song “Love Out Loud.”  It’s a song I can really focus on.

Sonia will be part of the Light of Day festival in Asbury Park, Jan. 15-19, 2014. She performs on Saturday, Jan.18 from 4:15 to 5 pm as part of the “Women in Song” program at the Dauphin Grille at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel at 1401 Ocean Ave., Asbury Park. The entire show is from noon to 6 pm. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased through or call (800) 745-3000.
