Profile of the performer SonVer:
SonVer started life late in 2003, when Jo Quail [cellos, programming] and Ben McLees [guitar, programming, samples] recorded 'Until The Stones Melt' as an experiment/side project away from their band Earth Loop Recall.
As well as being ELR'S keyboardist, Jo has also played cello with a number of bands and artists, including Rose McDowall, Hush The Many, Black Eyed Peas and Digitonal.
Prior to being ELR's lead singer and guitarist, Ben played guitar in late 1990's alternative band The Zero Club. Ben also plays bass in alternative band I Am Immune.
The soundtrack feel to SonVer's music has led to work/collaborations with UK film production companies, and SonVer's live show often incorporates both still and movie projection created by filmmaker Simon Bryant.
In 2005, SonVer released their self-titled debut album, and followed up the release with a series of live dates, including Ashton Court Festival in Bristol, WGT in Leipzig and Fimbulvetr in Edinburgh.
In spring 2007 the "Vigil EP" was released, and shortly afterwards SonVer expanded to a 4-piece with Alistair Richardson on drums and Ruban Byrne on guitar & bass joining Jo and Ben.
2008 saw the release of an untitled split compilation with friends Rose Mcdowall & Naevus, a collborative EP with the belgian act Elephant Leaf ("3 Songs EP") and the second LP by SonVer ("Luz Del Abyss").
