SOLA’s audiences have been astonished by the band’s immense sound – which is much bigger than you might expect from a four-member outfit. This collective of Annapolis Valley musicians combines dynamic melodies and full-bodied harmonies with guitar and drums that come together in a provocative, incendiary mix. With their high-energy performances, SOLA are eclectic, electric, and ethereal.
They put their unique spin on a musical melange that includes sounds ranging from Charles Bradley and First Aid Kit to bands like Arcade Fire, Alvvays and The War on Drugs. Their original music is a rapidly expanding catalogue that transcends a variety of musical genres. SOLA are Christiane Theriault (vocals, keys), Eric Gillis (vocals, guitar), Kristen Read (vocals, bass, synth), and Aaron Knock (drums, percussion).
