Sonia Montoya created Masonieria as a final graduate work for the Taller de Músics de Barcelona. This is her first solo pop music project, with which she has also managed to transcend beyond the academic, to become one of the most promising musical groups of the emerging underground scene in Barcelona. And not only from Barcelona, because despite its recent appearance on the scene, Masoniería has already applied strong in the residences for musicians in Matadero and managed to get in as a finalist in the latest edition of the prestigious Autoplacer model competition, in its last edition in 2018.
From the point of view of creation, the songs that make up the project share a simple, light and refined aesthetic, accompanied by a careful pop image, very powerful, that runs through the whole proposal. It’s also worth noting the importance given to the bass line, something that is not usually the case in pop music, and is often the starting point in the process of creating the songs.Sonia is also a very versatile musician who, despite her youth, has a surprising track record on the Barcelona independent scene. As a bass player, her experience is not limited to Masonry and Papa Topo, she has also played with the bands Jessica and the Fletchers and Pacífico.
