SONOR welcomes US artist Andres Forero to the artist family!


Mt. Juliet, TN - September 2015 - SONOR drums is proud to welcome Andres Patrick Forero to their artist roster.

"Over the past 18 years, I have had the same sound," said Forero. "When I was asked to be a part of the Broadway show Hamilton earlier this year; I knew it was time to explore all of my options. I had the opportunity to host Steve Smith during one of the Off Broadway performances and he provided me with a lot of insight on the intricacies of the SONOR line and the quality of their instruments. I spent the next month trying different drums and it did not take long to realize that Steve's recommendation to move to SONOR made perfect sense. The drums offer me a whole new way to express myself making them the perfect fit for my work on Hamilton and studio work." Andres currently uses SONOR ProLite drums for the Broadway show Hamilton and the SQ2 series drums for his studio work. "I am looking forward to a long relationship with the entire SONOR team."

Forero is one of the most sought after drummers on Broadway. He has performed and recorded on the Tony Award winning musical In the Heights, the Tony nominated Bring it On and spent fifteen months touring with the Broadway hit The Book of Mormon. Andres is currently playing 8 shows per week at the Richard Rogers Theater for the Broadway smash hit Hamilton. The original cast recording will be released later this year.

Throughout his career, Forero has performed and / or recorded with luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Paquito D'Rivera, Ron Carter, Alejandro Sanz, Tito Puente, William Cepeda, Sean Kingston, Ne-yo, Wyclef Jean, Jimmy Fallon, Alicia Keys, Rolando Morales-Matos, Luis Bonilla and Adam Ray.
