Sonos, the 6 member a cappella group stopped by the WYSO studio and performed a couple of songs from their upcoming holiday CD which is due to be released in early November. The group members include Christopher Given Harrison, Rachel Bearers, Ben McLain, Jessica Freedman, Katherine Ann Hoye, and Paul Peglar.
Sean Pennington and Georgia Goad first visited the WYSO studios when they were competing in the semi-finals of the Dayton Band Playoffs. Their debut album was recorded while they were competing in the playoffs, but the duo waited until later this fall to release it so they could finish up the artwork and production. A Shade of Red returned to Kaleidoscope to talk about the new album and their plans now that it's being released.
A Shade of Red will celebrate the release of Blush on Friday, October 29 at Canal Street Tavern.
