Sonnder is an experimental indie rock band based out of Philadelphia, PA. Their music spans the vast genre of alternative rock, encompassing sounds from punk and electronic to ambient and heavy rock influences. Fronted by lead singer and songwriter Ryan Weidman, Sonnder also consists of keyboardist/vocalist Kat Stein, bassist Steve Young, and drummer Mike Liszka. Sonnder just released their debut EP entitled “Thief" in late 2014 allowing them to expand their reach farther across the northeastern United States. The single “Too Bad You’re Not In Love” has gotten a lot of great praise, and has been the cause of a number of exciting opportunities, including a live performance on Radio 104.5! The band is currently in the midst of a year long singles project in which each month of 2015 will yield a brand new song available through the band’s website and all online music distributors. The January and February singles “Drifter” and “Backwards Ambition” received noteworthy recognition, landing air time and write ups from WXPN’s The Key. Sonnder recently was invited to share the stage with The Dear Hunter & Northern Faces at one of Philadelphia’s most prominent venues, Union Transfer. Overall, Sonnder plans to continue to stay positive and honest, pushing themselves artistically while broadening their horizons.
Possessed by the honesty and raw energy of yesteryear's rock and roll, Philly's Cold Roses "sound like they're straight out of a Texas roadhouse with their old-style country rock/blues combo" (WXPN). Their high-energy, eclectic live performances quickly led them to perform at some of their area's most premier music venues including World Cafe Live, Trocadero Theater, and The Legendary Dobbs, as well as be featured in publications like JUMP Magazine and Philadelphia Weekly. With the help of Kickstarter the band headed to Atlanta, GA to record their self-funded debut EP "The Georgia Fugue", released in January 2013. Cold Roses' distinctive blend of rock n' roll, soul, blues, punk, and americana delivered with genuine, thought-provoking lyrics and unique songwriting has made their sound a refreshing musical experience. Whoever said rock and roll was dead must have just given up.
