Emerging last fall from the college vocal scene, Sonos turned the genre on its head with bold interpretations of 21st century classics. On their Verve debut œSonoSings, 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. Recent appearances include live radio sessions on NPR's Weekend Edition, KCRW, BBC Americana, Sirius/XM; a collaboration with novelist Margaret Atwood at UCLA Live; plus performances at colleges, clubs, radio stations, theaters and events all over the country, including the Sundance Film Festival. April 2010 saw the release of œLove Comes Down, a collaboration with Ozomatli as part of their œOzomatli vs. KCRW Soundclash EP. The group recently won the CASA award for the Best Pop/Rock song of the year, for œI Want You Back, and numerous ACAs (A cappella Community Awards) including Best Group, Album, Song and Vocalist. Sonos are touring widely as well as embracing projects in other disciplines, including dance, with the Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Co. production ' œGods & Marionettes, which premiered to a sell-out crowd at the Ford Amphitheatre June 18 while the expanded version premieres January 2011. Another collaboration, their first full show with the beloved Young@Heart Chorus, is in December at UCLA, and the two groups are planning a tour together for 2012. And September saw them performing on stage at the Orpheum in L.A. with Sara Bareilles. Sonos released their indie œDecember Songs album November 9, a collection of originals and classics inspired by the season, though sounding like nothing like your average 'holiday' record. 2011 sees the release of their collaboration with Moodswings f/Chrisse Hynde, a version of Patty Griffin's œUp to the Mountain. They are currently in the studio working on a new album of contemporary originals for 2011. A further collection in the works is an album of collaborations with 12 leading film composers, for 2012. QUOTES: "The music of Sonos truly makes the world a little better place to live." - Michael Buckley, WRNR (D.C.) "Prepare to be stunned." - Paul Lester, The Guardian (UK) œA majestic album that will live a long, long time. ' SonicBoomers.com (L.A.) œInnovative vocal arrangements, inspired repertoire, supremely delivered. - Chris Douridas, KCRW-FM, CA œThe six voices combine into a beautifully harmonized, intricately timed machine that makes you forget there are no instruments. œ ' National Post (Canada) "Their a cappella cover of 'White Winter Hymnal' is one of the loveliest recordings I've ever heard."
