Formed in 2009 by army vet, singer/songwriter Davo Sounds (David Woulard),
Attack the Sound (ATS) has worked tirelessly to leave a lasting impression on the
Chicago music scene. Using elements of jazz, hip hop, blues, gospel and rock, ATS has
coined a new genre, Chi-pop [alternative RnB].
An electrifying and smooth tone, supported by a dynamic live show, has cemented a
place for ATS among Chicago familiars, affording the pleasure of working with
artists like Isaiah Sharkey, Bianca Shaw, Taylor Bennett and JC Brooks. Not only has
the music scene taken notice, in 2019, ATS appeared on ABC’s Chicagoland hit
midday show, Windy City Live, becoming one of the few bands to grace the show’s
stage. In 2020, Attack the Sound inked its first sync deal with Winding Way Records
for the single, Love is War. That same year, the music video for Love is War (retitled
Love:War), went on to win Judges’ Choice at the Midwest Film Festival.
2021 kicked off with the band winning Best Cinematography at the Best of the
Midwest Awards for their music video Love:War. ATS is currently recording new
music with Isaiah Sharkey, set to release fall of 2021, and preparing for Covid
restrictions to be lifted so the band can play more shows.
