SONORA is the deep and resonant vocals from singer/guitarist Saby Cheek, combined with Oliver Vendl’s melodic lead guitar and the thundering rhythm section of Florian Strobl on drums. SONORA’s dynamic, well-crafted songs alternate between intimacy and in-your-face. Whether treading lightly in an acoustic-based ballad, or firing on all cylinders in a rockin’ onslaught, SONORA is serious about music.

Serious about taking the all-or-nothing approach to creating art that touches, moves, and stays with listeners. Live, SONORA is a powerful force of nature sweeping the audience into an ocean of sound. What isn’t obvious at first- and it takes getting to know the band to learn- is that they have a fun side, too. Offstage, this quartet of friends is playful, even silly- they love to laugh- at life’s absurdities and- for the joy of being alive and able to play music.

Together for more than 10 years, SONORA is a fearless and fiercely determined band. In 2006, Saby started her own label, RollDog Records in order to release SONORA’s music, her own solo material, as well as that of other carefully selected artists. SONORA’s recorded output includes 2011's Eleven Ways to Remind the Past, 2010's EP Unplugged Sessions and 2009’s Days of Conquer. The songs “Someday” and "Rest Here In Peace" were selected for the 2010 and 2012 GoGirlsMusicFest compilation albums. SONORA is currently working on new material to be released in 2013.
