Emerging in the fall of '09 from the Los Angeles vocal scene, Sonos turned the a cappella genre on its head with bold vocal+electronic interpretations of popular indie material. On their Verve debut "SonoSings" the group reinvented Radiohead, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes & Imogen Heap, and dazzled with a dark, trip-hop take on a Jackson 5 classic.Special appearances over the past two years include live radio sessions on NPR's Weekend Edition, KCRW, BBC Americana, Studio 360 and Sirius/XM; performances at SXSW '11, Sundance '10, Celtic Connections, ASCAP Awards and L.A. Ovation Awards; collaborations with Margaret Atwood and the Young @ Heart Chorus at UCLA Live; plus performances at colleges, clubs, radio stations and theaters all over the country and in the U.K.In further collaborations, Sonos performed with Sara Bareilles at the Orpheum in LA and sang on an Ozomatli remix as part of their "Ozomatli vs. KCRW Soundclash" EP. "Gods & Marionettes", their stunning collaboration with the L.A. Contemporary Dance Company and playwright David Bridel, premiered this past year in Los Angeles at the Ford Ampitheater and USC's Bovard Auditorium. The piece, which combines the live vocal accompaniment of Sonos with a small group of dancers and a single actor, is a powerful artistic exploration of the concept of fate vs. free will.The group won the 2010 CARA (Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award) for Best Pop/Rock song of the year, numerous ACAs (A Cappella Community Awards) including Best Group, Album and Vocalist, and the 2011 CARA for Best Holiday Album for their 2010 release "December Songs", a stunning collection of classics and originals inspired by the winter holiday season.More about SNOWDAY:
