SonReal is a new school leader. With 2013 and 2014 JUNO Award nominations, this young artist has independently put all eyes on him by consistently putting out interesting innovative material. Notorious for releasing mixtapes that have an album feel, it’s easy to see why SonReal is at the forefront of the Canadian music industry.

In 2012, SonReal signed with independent label Black Box and released his first collaborative project The Closers with fellow Canadian rapper/producer Rich Kidd. Together they toured nationally and secured their first JUNO Award nomination for Rap Recording of the Year.

In 2013, SonReal released his first single “Everywhere We Go” (winner of the 2014 MMVA for MuchFACT Video of the Year), which quickly caught fire and received well over 1,000,000 views online. SonReal followed up this single with his first full-length album One Long Day which paved the way for SonReal to tour nationally in Canada. Shortly after the release of One Long Day, SonReal embarked on a 53 date U.S. tour with Seattle based artist, Grieves. With a new focus on conquering the international market, SonReal set off on his Everywhere We Go Tour throughout the U.S.A., as well as recording his international debut album.
