Since then, she’s lived in Atlanta. A diverse and talented multi-instrumentalist, she has toured extensively both in support of her own music, solo and with a band, as well as playing bass for New Orleans rockers Cowboy Mouth (mid-2004 through May 12, 2007) and guitar and mandolin for New Orleans singer/songwriter Paul Sanchez. Tetlow has also had the pleasure of performing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Atlanta and Company with Holly Firfir, the Louisiana Jukebox, as well as other news and radio broadcasts.
She has opened for Patti Smith, Shawn Mullins, Speech and Headliner from Arrested Development, Indigo Girls, Peter Holsapple and numerous others. She’s toured the east coast, performing at such venues as the Atlanta Civic Center, the Roxy Theater, CBGB’s, Newby’s, The Bitter End and Cafe Passim to name a few. Sonia also has showcased at the Atlantis Music Conference in Atlanta, GA and ROCKRGRL Music Conference in Seattle.
Besides being a prolific songwriter in her own right, Tetlow has collaborated on songs with Paul Sanchez (Cowboy Mouth, Paul Sanchez Rolling Road Show), John Thomas Griffith (Red Rockers, Cowboy Mouth), Fred LeBlanc (Cowboy Mouth, Dash Rip Rock) and David Torkanowsky (Astral Project, Irma Thomas), and was awarded four writing credits on Cowboy Mouth’s 2006 release, “VooDoo Shoppe.” Her lyrics have been called, “uncompromising yet undeniably intimate,” (Michael Andrews, Athens Flagpole) and her music runs the gamut from, “rocking with a barely contained intensity,” (Hal Horowitz, Atlanta Press) to, “mellow but soulfully intoxicating,” (Jeff Clark, Stomp and Stammer).
