Her dance hits have rockedclubs and topped charts globally, and she has been ranked a No. 1Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play Artist.

Sonsoles(pronounced sone-so-les) - derived from the Spanish words fora type of song (son) and the brilliance of the sun (sol) - is stamping its markon the increasingly popular Latin music scene. With a truly global ensem-ble of top-shelf musicians from Spain, Mexico, Los Angeles, DominicanRepublic and El Salvador, Sonsoles fuses a myriad of musical elements,ranging from Rock, Pop, Reggaeton, Salsa, and Folk, into a tasty sonicsauce.Sonsoles was founded in the fall of 2006 in Los Angeles by foundingmembers Steve Baltazar (keyboards) and Cesar Abrego (bass). Shortlythereafter, Spaniard Jóse Hernandez (guitar/vocals), a friend of the duo,also joined. Later, after answering an Internet ad and an obviously suc-cessful audition, Lonnie Moreno (drums) became the 4th member, andwith the recent addition of Delwin G. (rapper), the Sonsoles lineup is nowcemented. www.sonsolesmusic.comAnybody can have their rock, punk or folk phase, but real artists tran-scend boundaries and genres so gracefully that their fans hardly blink aneye.
