Born in a small town in rural British Columbia, SonReal built a massive legion of fans on the strength of his music videos, his soulful sing-rap style, and his ability to connect emotionally through his songs. The multi-talented artist is one of the most acclaimed and popular rising stars in Canada, earning six Juno Awards nominations and ten nominations and a win at the MuchMusic Video Awards. He made a name for himself in the American market with his energetic live shows, most recently opening for Jon Bellion on his sold out NA Tour and headling his own No Warm Up Tour. Boasting additional hits such as the Complex Canada-premiered “Who Care” and “No Warm Up,” which has earned nearly 1.5 million YouTube views, One Long Dream will push SonReal to the next level of mainstream recognition in the United States.

One Long Dream Tracklist:
Born in the small town of Vernon, British Columbia, SonReal is poised to be the next great Canadian export. A YouTube sensation, SonReal’s first video boasted the best talent show sequence since Napoleon Dynamite and racked up over a million plays in the first month. His next mixtape, 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 major label, SonReal began 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 pop radio. SonReal immediately jumped onto Jon Bellion’s sold out Human Condition tour, and then headlined his own No Warm Up Tour. Already a 6-time Juno Award nominee and 10-time MMVA nominee, as well as a MMVA winner for Best Music Video of The Year, for “Everywhere We Go,” SonReal is primed for takeover in both Canada and the US.
