Local musician Sonya Jevette just posted a reminder to check her out on Internet radio station Biker.FM today at 5:30 p.m. And yes, it is a station devoted to motorcycle culture. She’ll be featured on Lil Bill and the Gang’s show. After her radio stint today, according to her site, she performs tomorrow night at Reno’s Chop Shop in Deep Ellum. Reno’s is known mostly as a biker hangout and heavy metal music venue (and serves some strong-ass drinks, if I may add).
So, is the indie soul rocker changing sounds? Despite her song, “I’m Not Tracy” (which is a free download on her MySpace page), she does run in that Tracy Chapman/neo-soul vein. And wonderfully so, I might add. But her latest YouTube video, “Stormy Monday” shows her more bluesy side. Here, she sounds a bit harder and grittier here than she’s ever had before.
Maybe she’s in that reinvention phase. Musicians do that, ya know.
