"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, [...] on 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
"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
On The Sun crafts sleek and modern music steeped in classic and contemporary soul, funk, americana, jazz, and psychedelia. This Brooklyn-based soul collective represents a lifelong journey in groove for four musicians with eclectic backgrounds who have all landed in one place.
The band actively gigs regionally and nationally, and select performance career highlights include appearances at SXSW, Red Gorilla Festival, Ann Arbor Summer Festival, and CMJ. Recently, fans and future passengers onboard Sail Across The Sun music cruise voted On The Sun to perform on board alongside artists such as Lisa Loeb, Michael Franti, Robert Randolph, and many more. This appearance will be part of an extensive spring 2018 tour.
Since its inception, On The Sun has issued a debut LP; a vibrant version of Leonard Cohen’s" Bird On A Wire”; and the standalone single, “She Gets Around,” an irresistible slice of dance floor bliss that extols the virtues of polyamory. Upcoming, On The Sun will issue Gratuity Not Included (Space Tiger Records) March 2, 2018.
Gratuity Not Included is an artistic milestone for the band, as it captures the span of On The Sun’s artistic continuum, showcasing its expanded lineups with added saxophone, keyboards, and lush female guest vocalists. It also represents a new era of assured artistry after a period of tireless touring and soul searching.
The band opted to self-produce the seven-track collection, favoring live on-the-floor recordings as the core foundation to construct songs, and then reimagining these with soulful and tasteful experimental studio wizardry.
