About Sonoa


We consist of Chris, Anthony, Gabriel and Luis (left to right), a group of Rutgers students with distinct tastes in genre and borderline unhealthy obsessions with music--all of us love music across the spectrum except for Gabe, who only listens to Death Cab for Cutie and Coldplay.  We've been together for a little over a year, booking every show we can, energetically writing a bunch of songs, and hoping that one day our obsessions will turn into careers.  A lot of the songs are about that pursuit of passion--a relentless pursuit that often yields few tangible rewards--and how important it is to never abandon what you know you're meant to do.  Come to a local show and say hi--or talk with Gabe about existential dilemmas--anytime.

We started as an acoustic duo in 2017, and this is a photo of our first ever gig.


And here's one of our proudest moments so far, opening for Young the Giant at Rutgers' Spring Concert Series.
