Describe your sound as if we were deaf
SONU: Well if you were deaf would it matter? Just Kidding =) Well my sound is very unique because I use all the artists around me I take from what they do best and try to use it in my own way so I kind of feel I am a little bit of everything =)

What producers, songwriters and/or artists do you see as your primary inspirations?
SONU: I listen to a lot of hip hop and r&b so I like producers like Swamp Cat, Scott Storch, Timbaland, and Jermaine Dupri. As for artists my main inspiration has always been Michael Jackson and Usher. The way they preform has made me into what I am today I dont think anyone can be into music without an inspiration and they are mine. =)

Do you have a favorite musical project that you’ve worked on?
SONU: Right now I just did a song called close to you I cant talk to much about it but I can tell you that there is Yung Zune Ft. Me and a rapper to be named later. After I heard the outcome of this project I cant stop singing it so I take this as my favorite so far =)

How is the internet changing your craft?
SONU: Its making me more about exposure Im trying to get a lot of people to listen to my music and tell me what they think good or bad so I can improve myself =)

Do you feel like what you are doing is important?
SONU: Its very important to me because I have a talent and I want to share it with the world some people may like me or may not but I know I have supporters so it keeps me going =)

Lastly, could you talk about any long-term goals or talents you have in mind?
