"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

"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 makes sleek and modern groove music steeped in classic and contemporary soul, funk, americana, and R&B. Since its inception this simmering soul juggernaut  has issued a debut LP; a vibrant version of Leonard Cohen’s "Bird On A Wire”; the standalone single, “She Gets Around”, and a 2018 EP titled “Gratuity Not Included”. 

On July 28 they released the digital single “Get Focused (Live)”. The single, recorded last year in Cincinnati, captures the improvisation and unique mix of styles that characterizes their live performances. “Get Focused” will be the first of several live tracks planned for release this summer. 

The band has appeared at a variety of music festivals including performances at SXSW, Ann Arbor Summer Festival, Off The Record and Sail Across The Sun. They have recently shared bills with artists such as George Porter Jr., Robert Randolph, John Papa Gros, Brandi & the Alexanders and Red Baraat. They have also cultivated a close relationship with Sofar Sounds resulting in a series of intimate concerts across the country. 

Currently wrapping up a tour of the Northeast and Midwest, On The Sun will be doing a national tour including west coast and southwest dates beginning in October. Follow @onthesunmusic on social media or visit onthesunmusic.com/tour for tickets, release info and complete tour schedule.
