Sonnet Delivers a Version of “Carol Of The Bells” With a Different Holiday Ring
The Singer-Songwriter Follows the Recent Release of Her Debut EP With a Traditional Christmas Single
Sonnet, first garnered commercial success with her song, “You’re So Good for Me” an upbeat track featured in a 2009 Coca Cola/Lagoon Park campaign. The song hit the Top 100 downloads list at Amazon, appeared on iTunes, and garnered over 40K downloads in its initial month. Overstock.com debuted the first in a series of three commercials featuring Sonnet in late August 2012 and in September she released her debut self-titled EP.
“For me, the holidays are all about family. I have such fond memories attached to this time of year,” said Sonnet. “Life is typically so hectic but the holidays are a time of joyful celebration, a time when things just seem to slow down and we can enjoy time with family and friends,” she continued. “Singing has always been such a big part of our family festivities and I wanted to share one of my favorite Christmas carols with my fans”.
With the help of long-time collaborator and producer, Ali Noori, she chose to record “Carol Of The Bells”, a traditional carol filled with warm, rich harmonies. Together they experimented with sounds and arrangements, injecting Sonnet’s soulful, breathy vocal and putting a slightly modern twist on a Christmas classic. Sonnet’s lead vocal is layered with her harmonies. The song has rhythmic buoyancy that integrates percolating synths and delicate piano as well as tantalizing horns, sprinkled with sparkling bells and soothing cellos.
