Biography

The Sonnets are a band from Chicago, Illinois. Started by lead singer/guitarist Vee Sonnets in 1992, The Sonnets have had many line up changes and has featured members of other notable Chicago bands including Lisa on Life, Three Years Ghost, Jr. Loader, No Empathy, M.O.T.O, and numerous others. While their sound cannot be piegonholed, The Sonnets are a mix of 50’s R&B, Blues, and Rockabilly, 60’s Mod, 70’s Glam, Power Pop, and Punk, 80’s New Wave, 90’s Britpop, and modern pop and rock.

The Sonnets are Vee Sonnets (guitar and vocals), Ellie Maybe (bass and vocals), and Daisun deRijk (drums and percussion).

The Sonnets have performed for many notable charities as Rock for Ovarian Cancer Research and Rock for Breast Cancer Awareness. Their current CD entitled “Mystery Girl” donates $1 from each copy sold to CAWC’s Greenhouse Shelter for Abused Women.
