Comments from Studio Musicians

"I find the compositions really fresh and imaginative and a lot of fun to play."
-- Chester Thompson, drummer for Phil Collins

"Sonya Jason is an energetic, sincere musician dedicated to her craft. She definitely has something to say and she says it wonderfully with her instrument.
     She's a very creative and wonderful writer, producer and arranger. I had a fun and exciting time in the studio. Sonya has lots of patience and just wonderful charisma.
     I'm expecting big things from Sonya Jason. She's gonna be pavin' a way for herself in this business so everybody better look out for Sonya Jason 'cause Here She Comes."
-- Louis Price, lead singer for Temptations

"I love her writing. She's writing real songs which is so rare these days. And I love her horn playing. It's melodic and moody with fire and passion. Sonya's something special."
-- Bruce Malament, writer/arranger for Dionne Worwick and Barry White

"Sonya's music is fun and very creative. In the studio she allowed me to contribute my creativity and expression without directing me too much. I enjoyed working with her."
-- Kevin Ricard, percussionist with Kenny Loggins

"Sonya's a burning player. She's a bright person with lots of energy and a good business sense. I really loved the harmonic moves she made in her songs. I had great fun playing in the session with all of those cats, and Sonya's creative input was very helpful."
-- David Goldblatt, keyboardist with Diana Ross, musical director for Dennis Miller show

"Sonya has a very strong vision of what she wants to do and I was very impressed by that. She's a very fine producer and her suggestions really helped. I enjoyed her saxophone playing - it's very lyrical and very lovely and pleasant to listen to. The experience was great. I had a ball! I'm really looking forward to hearing her music on the charts."
-- Bill Cunliffe, keyboardist with Porcupine, Clayton Hamilton Orchestra
