We sincerely hope you enjoy this tribute to the late great Leonard Cohen. Our rendition of his famous "Bird On A Wire" is inspired by Leon Russell's arrangement of the tune, another brilliant musician we lost this year. With this release we honor and remember these amazing artists, and make to you a humble offering.

"THE STORY OF ON THE SUN [IS ONE] OF ARTISTIC COLLABORATION AND PERSISTENCE ON EVERY LEVEL OF THE MUSICAL PROCESS. [...] THERE’S A DECIDEDLY METROPOLITAN, NEW YORK-Y SOUND AND FEEL HERE THAT IS TRUE TO ON THE SUN’S ROOTS. WHILE LISTENING, [...] 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." -JUDE WARNE, LIVE FOR LIVE MUSIC | Read Full interview
"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."-PARISA MAHDAD, KINOFILIA ARTS BLOG | Read FULL REVIEW
