Displaying a diverse balance of talent that brews up catchy tunes, SOSOS captivates audiences with their smart musical melodies and lush vocal harmonies.
Unusual?.. Not really. But, you could say SOSOS is a band that strays from the usual because they solely base their music around acoustic root instruments.
Upright bass, pump organ, acoustic guitars, banjo, mandolin, djembe, drums, melodica, and even a box of rocks at times keeps SOSOS generating their own brand of energy even if the power lines go down!
Chris Monteleone, David Klein, Pete Vega, Ben Manburg, and Mitch Herrick provide music at its simplest form. Music from the root.
SOSOS has toured the East Coast with Donavon Frankenreiter and shared the stage with many music icons including Richie Havens, Blues Traveler, Blind Melon, Tim Reynolds (from Dave Mathews Band), Rusted Root, Yonder Mountain String Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Donna the Buffalo, Keller Williams, Inner Circle
The Gourds, Bobby Lee Rodgers, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave. and the list goes on...
SOSOS music has made the back drop to many TV shows as well. PBS's "Roadtrip Nation" used four sosos songs in five different episodes. Other artists used in the show include Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter, Sufjan Stevens, Brett Dennon, Toubab Krewe, and Xavier Rudd. Networks such as NBC, WB and WGN America also found sosos music useful in some of their programs: "Friday Night Lights, Life, Jack and Bobby, and Around The World for Free".
SOSOS is currently working on their 3rd studio album.
