Sonny Casey is a singer-songwriter, born in West Yorkshire and from the age of nine- raised in the wild, rainy West of Ireland.
Always an avid lover of books and words; Sonny began writing stories and poems as a young child and in her teenage years found herself
blending her love for words with her love for singing.
She first found her feet and her voice, on the vibrant streets of Galway City at the age of seventeen, when she began journeying in from Connemara to busk on bustling Shop Street.
Since then, Sonny has busked her way around Ireland, from Dingle to Derry and has performed in venues such as The Roisín Dubh, Galway and the Workman's Club, Dublin.
Armed with only a guitar and a voice, she has shared her songs on the streets of Edinburgh, France, Germany, England, Hungary, Italy, Austria, Portugal and Oslo.
Inspired by the likes of Glen Hansard, Damien Rice and Bruce Springsteen to name a few, Sonny combines her love for words with simple melodies, backed by sweet guitar-picking to create heart-warming ballads that are made haunting by her unique voice.
In April 2018 she self-released her second street album 'Pocketful Of Words', much to the delight of the crowds that stop to hear her busking.
Sonny resides in Germany where she continues to share her songs in parks, on bridges , outside subway stations and alongside the colourful markets of bold Berlin.
Sonny is currently recording her first studio album which she hopes to release in 2020.
