We are Sojoürn an American Hard Rock/Alternative band out of Athens Ga. Our motto is RISE!
Our music comes from the one thing that you can't live without.. The heart. Using diverse inspirations, we have created music for one thing.. You
Sojoürn was formed in Athens, GA at the end of 2015, when Singer Songwriter Robert Norris and Guitarist Alex Edrington (a student at UGA) found that when writing together they connected like "Mick Jagger and Keith Richards" according to Veteran Producer and 80s Rocker Michael Cummings from MacQueen Street. With a touch of Jim Morrisons famous story telling and 90's Rock and Roll Kurt Cobain, Nirvana they were inspired and just couldn't stop writing. With close to 30 songs in the works they also began to realize that the Beatles (Rob's half British after all!)had a big part in their influence. So, yes they are a little eclectic or is it eccentric!!! But whatever it is we have been told that it is incredibly fresh, new, energetic Rock
While fans certainly enjoyed their impressive covers of bands like The Beatles, Nirvana, Audioslave, and Collective Soul, the boys including Justin Stokes , Alex's Drummer from a previous Band, had a yearning desire to play the songs they had been writing. As fate would have it, they got their chance, after recording “Nowhere or Now Here?” - produced by Michael Cummings - the guy who brought them all together just a couple of months earlier.
Since the release of “Nowhere or Now Here?” Justin and Brock Edrington (original bass guitar) moved on to the Corporate world to wear a suit all day!!! Sorry Dudes We miss you, But the Show must go on and we just don't do ties!!!
Sojoürn has since been joined by the talents of Gabriel Michael on Drums and Will Barron on Bass Guitar .....so...
Yes, indeed, Sojoürn is “Now Here.”
