Born in the small town of Vernon, British Columbia, SonReal’s first major video for his song Everywhere We Go boasted the best talent show sequence since Napoleon Dynamite and racked up over 14 million plays to date.
His next EP, the Juno-nominated For The Town, continued the visual tradition, including some of the most creative music videos on the web in “Preach,” “For The Town,” and “Woah Nilly.” After completing an American tour and signing to a US major label, SonReal locked away in the studio to work on his debut album, One Long Dream. The first single of the project “Can I Get A Witness” was an instant success, achieving platinum status and entering the Top 15 in Canadian top 40 radio. Not soon after, SonReal parted ways with his US label, and regained his independence. One Long Dream was released, and SonReal immediately hit the road on his headlining 45 date One Long Dream tour.
