From the Opera House in Sydney, to the Open House in Jerusalem, SONiA (Rutstein aka disappear fear) writes and performs captivating love songs and confronts the hypocrisies and biases of our culture with a positive message of openness and optimism.

In fact, the entire playlist for The Eclectic Woman show on Feb. 9 was inspired by SONiA’s social activism through her music and we will be featuring songs by various artists about political hypocrisy, war protest, social issues and more.

Having performed in Israel/ Palestine and in many parts of the world, SONiA's Judaic roots live in the colors of her songs and paintings.   SONiA has performed in 16 countries and has just as many award winning Albums to her credit. She has received the GLAMA Award for Female Artist of the Year, Best Band, Best Song, WAMA Award for Best Vocalist, Out Music Award for OUTstanding World Music CD, OUTstanding Single,  Best in Blues Finalist for IMA Awards, and Finalist for the Telluride Song Competition.   

SONiA is a member of the Grammy Foundation for the Recording Industry of America and Amnesty International.   

Her talent as a guitar player led the Santa Cruz Guitar Company to create a SONiA Model which has been sold in the US, Germany and Australia.  

Singing in Hebrew, Spanish, Arabic and English, her powerful honesty touches people of varied social and ethnic backgrounds, especially those moving towards a positive world vision.

SONiA’s independent record label, disappear records, donates 18% of every download to the United Nations World Food Programme.
