I'm Sonia Bourdages, a versatile singer and actress with a background in music education from Canada. I relocated to Europe in my thirties.My passion lies in both the voice itself and the individuals who pursue creative endeavors. I believe that artists possess a unique ability to blend their creativity with entrepreneurial spirit. By harnessing their artistic talents and innovative thinking, artists can not only create captivating performances but also develop sustainable business models. Through my own journey, I've discovered the power of combining artistry with business acumen, and I'm passionate about helping others unlock their full potential in both realms. www.soniabourdages.net

My Story

My journey with the arts began at the age of three when I discovered my love for singing. Growing up in Canada, I delved into the creative world early on, crafting my very first song at the age of seven for a local festival. In my teens, I expanded my musical horizons by studying the saxophone, but my heart was always drawn to singing. At the age of 18, I made the transition to singing, marking the beginning of my musical journey. Throughout my formative years, I lent my voice to choirs and performed as a soloist, even taking on the role of choir director. My passion for the arts extended beyond music as I delved into the world of acting.

At just 19 years old, I penned my own play and directed it at the music school where I was then studying. This early experience helped me realize that "ART" was destined to be a central part of my life and today I continue to sing, compose give lessons and give concerts. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Perspective

Even as a freelance artist, I've had my own businesses in the past, and, to be honest, navigating them hasn't always brought the success I hoped for. While some ventures went smoothly, others presented challenges that required adjustment and learning, and one was a total catastrophe. However, it's been a valuable journey... Artists are not only artists; they are entrepreneurs, and if they use their creativity, their potential will expand. Through this experience, I've come to understand the importance of navigating the business side of things as an artist.

Closing Thoughts

Even when faced with challenges, I encourage you to stay on your chosen path. That's precisely why I created "Backstage of your Voice." It's not only a platform to pursue your journey but also a source of motivation to remain true to your calling and your authentic self. If you try to suppress your creative impulses, they will inevitably resurface. Creativity is like a resilient child; if you attempt to put it to sleep, it will inevitably wake up one day, eager to express itself. Embrace and nurture your creative spirit, for it holds the key to endless inspiration and fulfillment.

Blessings on your artistic/business journey! Hope to see you soon!
