Sol is a hip hop artist from Seattle, Washington, whose thoughtful lyrics, exuberant performances, and diverse instrumentation have solidified him among the leaders of the northwest music scene. 2012 marked a transcendent year for Sol’s career, starting with the highly anticipated independent album Yours Truly, which quickly rose to #1 on iTunes US Hip-Hop Chart (#4 worldwide) and debuted on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart. Following a west coast tour, as well as performances before a ruckus crowd at Live Nation’s Sasquatch Music Festival and a sold out farewell show at Seattle’s Showbox at the Market, Sol left the United States on a ten month globe-trotting hiatus as part of the Bonderman Honors Travel Fellowship he was awarded at the University of Washington.

Ten months and ten countries later, Sol returned to the United States in 2013, evolved and inspired, heading straight to the studio to produce his EP, Eyes Open. Debuting in the top 10 of the iTunes Worldwide Hip Hop Chart, Eyes Open is a global effort, with songs written on four continents. Following the successful release of the EP, Sol headlined a west coast tour that included multiple sold out shows, capped off by a sold out return to Showbox at the Market. The Eyes Open EP has received critical acclaim from Complex, XXL, DJ Booth, and GoodMusicAllDay among others. Sol is now working on his next album which is slated for a 2016 release.
