For the 2010 holiday season, Canadian Singer/songwriter Sonia Funk releases a Christmas EP titled Carol with a new radio-remix of her rendition of “The Huron Carol - Angel’s Song Remix” that includes a new chorus she wrote for the song.

For Immediate Release:  November 12, 2010

For the 2010 holiday season, Canadian Singer/songwriter Sonia Funk releases a Christmas EP titled Carol with a new radio-remix of her rendition of “The Huron Carol - Angel’s Song Remix” that includes a new chorus she wrote for the song. With Indigo in-store performances, a special EP release party, working on a new album of original material for 2011 and teaming up with some amazing charities tba, Sonia has a busy holiday season ahead.

Funk had envisioned arranging and recording a Christmas record as long as she had been making music.  When she decided to return to music full time in 2009, an EP of Christmas Carols seemed like the natural path to find her way back into the industry. The response was overwhelming, particularly because she resided in the UK at the time of the EP’s release.

Sonia made a quick decision to officially release the record to radio - the old fashioned way.  A hard copy delivery, (by her Dad!) to her local hometown station in Winkler Manitoba, landed in the hands of Trev Schellenberg, Music Director for half of Golden West Radio’s Southern Prairie stations.  He fell in love with the tunes and by the end of December, Sonia’s little EP had tallied 800 spins across Southern AB, SAS and MB.  In the UK, Mood Media took the record and put it into their Christmas Playlists for retail and hospitality clients across UK, Europe and into Australia.  

Sonia has now repatriated to Canada, bringing with her the completely re-mastered EP now called Carol and the Radio Remix of “The Huron Carol.”  Music and program directors across Canada are already singing her praises.

This holiday, when you find a lull in those Bing and Frank records, feast your ears on this Canadian songbird’s holiday EP.  This Enchanting and Whimsical take on an old Tradition is sure to brighten your Christmas spirit and become a staple in your holiday music traditions.

 “Wow!!! Truly Beautiful. Sonia absolutely nails the spirit of the season” - Andy Ross, PD, Wired 96.3 FM, Saskatoon

“I love the song!  It can be a bit of a struggle to find solid Christmas tunes for airplay so “The Huron Carol Remix” will be a really nice add this season.  Well done!” - David Drake, MD, BOB FM, Winnipeg
