Feb 04, Wed, 2015
Born and raised in Canada's capital, SORU thrives to create a unique sound that pushes the boundaries of urban music blurring the lines between R&B and Hip Hop. Playing the piano was his first musical venture, obtaining a 6 year certification by the Royal Conservatory of Arts at the age of 12. Singing then came naturally, imitating legends such as Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles & Michael Jackson, the latter of which inspired him to begin moving to music.
Artiste pluridisciplinaire YAO est comparable à un troubadour des temps modernes; À travers un doux mélange de Slam, Jazz et Blues, il tire l'essence de son style à travers ses textes qu'il considère comme étant tout d'abord, des poèmes et histoires courtes destinées à être mis en musique et chantées.
Galaxie Rising Star Award - 2013 / Prix Étoile Galaxie - 2013
Pony Girl
"Melodies of guitar, synth & haunting voices were coupled with samples & electronic keys. I think Röyksopp & OSI had a baby that was raised by Sigur Rós & Little People. The filly grew up to be more than the sum of its parts and remained faithful to the places where it was nurtured. This is where you’ll find Pony Girl, in the galleries & studios of the world."
Mackenzie Rhythm Section
3 Words: Funk. Soul. Rock n' Roll. The People's Soundtrack. Brand New Solid Gold Sounds for You & Yours, Young & Old, Bold & True. Each song has the Stain of Blood, Sweat & the Tears. Made to Save, Made to Move you, Made for The Love. Don't Fight It.
