SondorBlue
The members of Charleston, South Carolina’s SondorBlue have the markers of the so-called ‘New Bohemian’ movement – with focus on a healthy lifestyle, brotherly love, and individuality. From TIME Magazine in the US to THE GUARDIAN in the UK, people are talking about the return to this free-thinking way of life. While SondorBlue is a rock band writing tight pop songs, they share the relentless touring schedule, the fan culture and the raw musicianship of artists on the ever-expanding jam band scene.


The band is comprised of three exceptionally talented vocalists who could each easily front their own bands – Connor Hollifield on lead guitar, John Sheehan on guitar and keyboards and Andrew Halley at center stage on bass – with drummer, Drew Lewis holding down a clockwork backbeat. They come together to create harmonies unlike any you have ever heard. Connor explained of the arrangement “We had all had our own songwriting side projects when we were younger, but when we came together to play music — that's when we were the happiest.” Sheehan added “I wanted to share this experience with my best friends. I knew we could go a lot further together than any of us could alone.”


If longevity for bands is determined by their ability to pull off their recorded material in a live setting, then SondorBlue is set up for a long, fruitful career. They have been aggressively touring all along the East Coast and make pulling off their complex harmonies and playing their intricate arrangements look easy. The band loves to play live. “It is one of my favorite things,” says Lewis. “It has been great to watch the songs develop as we take them out of the studio and onto the stage.”


“We’ve been lucky to connect with some great people on the road and they have been enormously supportive,” explains Halley. "We’ve been able to replicate some of our experience through social media, and it has been rewarding to engage and keep in touch with everyone we've met along the way.” It shows - the band’s single, “OPINIONS,” has over 173k streams on Spotify and a track off their 2016 REALOMETER EP release, “The Moon And You,” has over 194k streams. BuzzArtists called their musical combination “swirling, harmony-driven indie rock,” though you might want to add a touch of ‘pop’ to the band’s ever-evolving recipe. With YOU WILL FIND LOVE ON ASHLEY AVENUE, the band’s brand new EP, they bring context to their recent hit, “OPINIONS,” by wearing their Beatles influence on their proverbial sleeve. Gorgeous melodies, harmonies and expert instrumentation are the hallmarks of the other tracks “Escape!,” “A Beautiful Dream,” “I hate living like this” and the single “Ashley Ave.”

As the band’s calling card is their amazing live show, they have recorded many sessions available online (B-Side Sessions, WSBF Live Sessions, Indaba Music Sessions and Break Thru Radio) in addition to a performance at Google’s NYC HQ . SondorBlue have had their music featured in diverse xoutlets like Relix Magazine, Guitar Player Magazine, What Youth, Culture Collide and Popdust (who called them the new Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young – a reference that has found considerable support among the press in general).

SondorBlue are poised for big things in the future. Look for them at a venue near you.
