New Music: Tonia

Hailing from the musical mecca of Liverpool comes promising soul starlet Tonia.

If you’re a fan of Amy Winehouse’s very earliest work, then chances are high that you’ll appreciate Tonia’s thoughtful fusions of soul and mellow indie pop – as can be heard on new single ‘Empty Conversations’.

“When I wrote ‘Empty Conversations’ it was quite a while after the relationship had ended but it was enough time to figure out exactly how I felt about it. It is about self-assurance: the joy you can find in the moment you realise you feel no emotion towards someone that you once felt deeply for. I had moved on and grown from a past relationship and I had no hurt left. I could enjoy the comfort of happiness I found in myself instead of relying on finding happiness in someone else.”

Fans can look forward to Tonia’s debut EP ‘Afloat’, which is released on the 20th January 2023 and is inspired by themes of love, heartbreak and personal growth.
