“Five Minutes With” alternative pop artist, SOHLO

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, SOHLO is an Independent Artist who has been creating his own music since 2015. Since he was a child, SOHLO has been surrounded by music. His father was the frontman in a band and would play demo tapes for him cruising around together in his old beat-up band wagon…this is when his passion for music began to grow. He took that inspiration and began playing music with his friends in high school, where he discovered his voice as an artist. His music is a time capsule; each song is a memory of an experience in his life bringing authenticity to his work. Drawing inspiration from a vast variety of genres & artists, SOHLO writes, records and produces his own music, in his basement studio that he built with his father. SOHLO hopes that one day his passion will inspire people to follow their dreams and never give up because nothing is impossible in life.
