Hootie & The Blowfish’s Jim “Soni” Sonefeld Talks Memoir, Recovery, Being A Christian Artist, And More 11/1/2022



Jim “Soni” Sonefeld is the original drummer for Hootie & The Blowfish, who’s debut full-length record, Cracked Rear View, is one of the best-selling albums of all time, selling upwards of 21 million copies. The album went to #1 on the Billboard chart, the band won two Grammys and gained financial security, but with great success came great excess. “Soni” would find himself sinking into a dark place of alcoholism and drug addiction. He would ultimately find his way out of the darkness, and he shares his inspiring story of recovery and life with Hootie & The Blowfish in his new book, Swimming With The Blowfish: Hootie, Healing, And One Hell Of A Ride.

Soni has also released a new EP of solo music that reflects his Christian faith called Remember Tomorrow, which he discusses in this conversation filled with warmth, light, and all things Hootie!
