Sonos Sings: Acapella/Pop Concert on tour
*TICKETS AT THE DOOR, COME ON BY!
-------------------
In December 2008, Los Angeles vocal collective Sonos debuted at the Hotel Caf with an intimate, yet scorching performance... brimming with fiery fervor, major dynamics and sexual tension (Deli Magazine LA ). The group breathes new life into a cappella, giving the genre a contemporary makeover... prepare to be stunned (The Guardian UK) on their debut SONOSings, available September 15 on Verve Forecast, on which the group combines a rich, classically choral sensibility with their ultra-modern repertoire and sonic toolkit.

Emerging from the SoCal college a cappella scene with the singular aim of turning the genre on its head, Sonos reinvents a 21st century songbook with bold reinterpretations of vital indie artists who inspire the sextet. The result is a spellbinding fusion of ancient and contemporary sounds, as songs by the likes of Radiohead (Everything in Its Right Place), Sara Bareilles (an a cappella UCLA alum herself, she joins Sonos for a rendition of her Gravity), Fleet Foxes (White Winter Hymnal), Bon Iver (Re:Stacks), Rufus Wainwright (Oh What a World), Bjrk (Joga), Imogen Heap (Come Here Boy) and other cutting-edge creators are transformed into mesmerizing vehicles for voices only. The repertoire also extends to the iconic mainstream, hence their radical trip-hop rendition of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" and their soulful take on Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence."

Sonos's imaginative approach has already won plaudits from such tastemakers as Chris Douridas of L.A. bellwether station KCRW-FM, who praised Sonoss innovative vocal arrangements and inspired repertoire, supremely delivered. The first available taste of the record is "I Want You Back" now exclusively on iTunes, with "Everything In Its Right Place" to follow on 18th August.
