Biography

please see (instead) Sona . (or try searching for sOna \[US\] , using exactly that text, where the artist name is followed by a single space, then “US” enclosed in square-brackets, and nothing else).

Disambiguation: the artist name is “sOna” (pronounced with a long-O, as in bone or soda). When sOna joined the other artists here at last.fm , it was learned that the name had already been in use by another artist. A Japanese pop singer, like Madonna and Cher before her, is known by one name: Sona.

In order for Last.FM and AudioScrobbler technology to function as intended, it is necessary for each artist to bare a unique name. For example, while two or more artists might share the same name, only one such artist will be granted a web address to match. Since Japanese Sona already occupied the URL http://last.fm/music/sona , the burden to create a unique Last.Fm web address was left to this sOna— the group from State College, PA, USA. It is unfortunate that the artist name known to sOna fans, and the Last.Fm name for the same artist do not match. Furthermore, to search for this sona, a user will most likely find only a Japanese counterpart, in Sona, the popular Japanese young woman. Problems of disambiguation do not end here. Fans of sOna who use a Last.Fm AudioScrobbler plug-in for his or her media player, or the Last.FM Scrobbler Client itself, on playing mp3’s of this sOna, if the artist-name for that media is tagged as “sona”, “SONA”, or “sOna”— upper or lower case being irrelevant, of course— then all associated data which Last.

    it's better to view the more whack URL (for avoiding confusion w/ Japan's "Sona"), at http://last.fm/music/sOna+[US]/ ... (copy paste, should work for browsing better, while the "brackets" thing often does not otherwise) ... In other words, see "sOna [US]", with that exact text-- the US appearing in regular "square" brackets...
