- Event Details
Emerging last fall from the college a cappella scene, Sonos turned the genre on its head with bold interpretations of 21st century classics. On their Verve debut SonoSings, the vocal group reinvented Radiohead, Bon Iver & Fleet Foxes and dazzled with unique twists on the mainstream such as a melancholy, tripped-out Jackson 5 cover. In 2009, Sonos won the CASA award for Best Pop/Rock song of the year, for that recording of “I Want You Back,” and numerous ACAs (A cappella Community Awards) including Best Group, Album, Song and Vocalist.
During 2010, Sonos appeared in live session on NPR’s Weekend Edition, Studio 360, KCRW, BBC Americana, Sirius/XM, and countless national stations, as well as at the Sundance Film Festival. Eager to push the envelope, the group has already collaborated with novelist Margaret Atwood at UCLA Live; with Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Co. at the Ford Amphitheater; with Ozomatli and the KCRW soundclash project; with Sara Bareilles onstage at the Orpheum, and with the celebrated “Young at Heart” Chorus.
Following the release of December Songs, Sonos will perform at select cities across the U.S. including the Hotel Café in Los Angeles on December 1. They are currently in the studio working on a new album of contemporary originals for release in 2011.
