SonReal is the moniker of Canadian singer, songwriter, rapper and visual artist Aaron Hoffman. With years of international touring, more than a dozen award nominations, 130 million video views and over 200 million global streams to his credit, Aaron has made a name for himself as SonReal.
Bursting onto the scene with the quirky, now-viral video sensation “Everywhere We Go” (36M views), SonReal and his team set a high bar for visual content and song writing. The Double Platinum-certified single “Can I Get A Witness” was the first indication that SonReal had more to say as a songwriter and more to accomplish as an artist.
His previous project, The Aaron LP, is the culmination of this creative journey to align the artist persona of SonReal with the songwriter and person, Aaron Hoffman every song is a deeply relatable look into the person behind the music.
SonReal’s latest EP “i can’t make this up” was written and recorded in the height of the pandemic, dropped in August 2021, and has amassed over 5.5 million global streams to date.
Most recently, SonReal released his highly anticipated album “Nobody’s Happy All The Time”, which includes the stand out single “Remember Me For Me” featuring Lily Moore accompanied by a dynamic music video directed by Sterling LaRose, which was just nominated for ‘Video of the Year’ award at the 2023 JUNOs. The release was covered by Flaunt, Wonderland, 1883 Magazine & more. In support of this new body of work SonReal is setting out on his “Nobody’s Happy All The Time Tour” covering over 30 cities across North America.
