After her 2014 EP release, Wake Up, Sonali was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease and has been regaining her health for the past two years. It was two years of productivity, that was taken from her, but the Indian-American songstress is now back, healthier and with an updated, high energy single, “Forever”. Sonali has incorporated a light and refreshing amount of electronic music to her style that takes her traditional folk-inspired pop songwriting in a new, flashy direction. Her sensual, powerhouse vocals still shine through, but are complemented with her clean, poetic lyrics and modern, catchy production.
Her hope is to generate buzz with her new sound that will give her a platform to add another voice to her heritage. “My family is from India and that’s been a huge part of my upbringing,” Sonali shares. “Growing up, I never had anyone on screen or in music that I could look up to in that sense, and I don’t want that to be the case for kids today. Indians are finally starting to get a voice in the TV and Film world, and it’s about time that spills over into the music industry!”
Sonali is the perfect artist to expand people’s horizons and move them from their ethnocentric behavior. Her music is approachable. Her talent is undeniable. And her spirit is resolute. It takes a lot to come back from a debilitating disease like Chronic Lyme Disease and still be able to pursue the dream. What else do you need?
