Sol was a Canadian indie rock band in the 1990s. From Moncton, New Brunswick, the band consisted of singer and bassist Stacy Ricker,[1] guitarist Robin Anne Ettles and drummer Chris Mersereau.

They released their first indie EP, Small Vacations, in 1996. That same year, they also performed a rendition of "Blue Tattoo" on A Tribute to Hard Core Logo. In 1997, they released their full-length debut, Lucinda.

The band toured Canada several times, and had singles on campus and community radio. They won an East Coast Music Award for Best Alternative Artist in 1999,[citation needed] but disbanded due to creative differences the same year. A live album was released in 2000.

All three members continue to make music on their own.
