Biography

Sobriquet is a 4-member indie band from Lawrence, KS. Formed in 2006 through mutual friendships, each of the members already possessed strong individual musicianship. Years of extensive experience (over 20 tour markets and 40 shows per year under their belt), and those individual talents contribute greatly to the end result.

Sobriquet's aesthetic is large, cinematic, and rich with lyricism (their recent release, Kids of The Night, is a tapestry of movement), They show expansive range in both topic and style; political activism balanced with sensuality or even light-hearted material, acoustic ballads that somehow mesh with heavy rock, or augmented time signature and tempo. What's more, Sobriquet is prolific. The band has barely half of their written material recorded at this point, and they're continuously writing new material (40+ songs).

It's no wonder with the combined talent and tenacious activity of this band that there is strong demand for live performances. Sobriquet plays regularly in their hometown market (Lawrence, Kansas City), headlining club plays. They're also a warm and engaging opening act. Sobriquet put together their own tour through Midwestern markets in late 2012 and are positioned to make the jump to the national stage.
