On The Sun is a live band based in Brooklyn, NY creating original music influenced by soul, rock, funk, americana and psychedelia. A powerful song always at the center of it's orbit, the group delivers a healthy dose of vocal harmonies, breakdowns, snarling guitars, and earth-shaking bass and synthesizers grooves. With all members contributing as writers, arrangers, and/or producers, the quintet's collaborative process yields frequent new material, and whether they are on the road or at home playing iconic NYC venues such as Mercury Lounge, Knitting Factory, and Rockwood Music Hall, the band consistently takes their fans on new sonic adventures. They are currently recording a follow up album to their self-titled LP debut, and teaser tracks will be released in the fall!

" On The Sun feels the music. Every note they play, they live it. [...] When you watch this band, it doesn’t feel like you’re watching, but rather that you’re part of the group."
-Kinofilia Arts Blog review of Sofar Sounds NYC Performance
"The story of On the Sun, a working New York City-based soul band founded in 2013, is a story of artistic collaboration and persistence on every level of the musical process. [...]
On the Sun is self-produced, self-managed and self-promoted. [...] The album in question, On The Sun, is a ten-track work that is as varied as it is compositionally impressive. There’s a decidedly metropolitan, New York-y sound and feel here that is true to On the Sun’s roots. While listening to some of the tracks, one may be prone to see flashes of blurred traffic lights, streets and sidewalks, like a sped up film of NYC turning from day to night. The flow of the album is an expert flow. [...]
L4LM writer Jude Warne sat down with a few members of the band to discuss their in-process ascent to success and the concurrently typical set-backs along the way, as well as their recent record release." - LiveForLiveMusic.com
