Genre: Rock, Indie Rock
SONORA is the deep and resonant vocals from singer/guitarist Sabine Litschka, combined with Oliver Vendl’s melodic lead guitar and the thundering rhythm section of Hartwig Krebitz on bass and Florian Strobl on drums. SONORA’s dynamic, well-crafted songs alternate between intimacy and in-your-face. Whether treading lightly in an acoustic-based ballad, or firing on all cylinders in a rockin’ onslaught, SONORA is serious about music.
Serious about taking the all-or-nothing approach to creating art that touches, moves, and stays with listeners. Live, SONORA is a powerful force of nature sweeping the audience into an ocean of sound. What isn’t obvious at first- and it takes getting to know the band to learn- is that they have a fun side, too. Offstage, this quartet of friends is playful, even silly- they love to laugh- at life’s absurdities and- for the joy of being alive and able to play music.
Together for 10 years, (except for newcomer Hartwig who joined in 2009), SONORA is a fearless and fiercely determined band. In 2006, Sabine started her own label, RollDog Records in order to release SONORA’s music, her own solo material, as well as that of other carefully selected artists. SONORA’s recorded output includes 2009’s Days of Conquer and last year’s Unplugged Sessions EP. The song “Someday” from Days of Conquer was selected by Madalyn Sklar for the 2010 GoGirlsMusicFest compilation album. They are currently working on their next full-length, Eleven, to be released in 11-11-11. Receiving recognition at the Austrian “Local Heroes” competition and winning over a growing fan base, SONORA is a hardworking band from Austria- and soon the world.
