Biography

A founding member of sister duo Disappear Fear, Sonia (born Sonia Rutstein) has continued to astonish audiences with her hardcore feminist lyrics as a solo performer since 1998. While the warm vocal harmonies of the duo have been missed, Sonia has compensated with her hard-edged lyrical approach. While she continues to perform in folk music coffeehouses and festivals, Sonia has increasingly reached out to a gay and lesbian audience, performing at human rights and GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transvestite) festivals throughout the world including the Gay Games in Amsterdam. One dollar from the sale of each ticket to her shows has been donated to the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. Inspired by Phil Ochs, Joni Mitchell, and Bob Dylan, Sonia wrote all the songs performed by Disappear Fear. The duo, which made its debut in 1987, became one of the most promising acts in contemporary folk and acoustic music. Their 1996 album, Seed in the Sahara, was produced by Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band keyboardist Roy Bittan. Although Sonia has performed as a soloist since her sister, Cindy Frank, announced her retirement from the duo, to devote her attention to raising her daughter, the sisters have periodically joined on stage for reunion shows. ~ Craig Harris°eÕ, All Music Guide
