Biography

“One of the greatest songs I’ve heard in YEARS!!”

Mike Portnoy

Drummer

Sonoride’s music has been praised by Zero Magazine as “an excellent work, a kind that is both dreamy and colorful, with a magical touch of the past”. Sonoride’s music moves mainly in the spaces of folk, singer songwriter, pop, sometimes even towards country and rock, and is mainly influenced by the sounds from the 60’s and the 70’s and some contemporary indie music.

Reminiscent of the harmonic and melodic complexities of The Beatles, Jeff Lynne, David Bowie, even a little pop sense of Abba, with vocal harmonies similar to the Eagles and America.
