About Wild Sun
Wild Sun stands apart from the noise and imitation with their honest brand of heartfelt rock and roll. In a time when every channel is overloaded with the same old thing, Wild Sun is fresh and raw, and yet accessibly familiar. In less than two years together, the trio of alternative rockers have earned their stay as one of the most promising bands around. With their debut album produced by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Phish), frequent radio airplay (CMJ Top 200 Chart), and a live show that breaks bar sales records, Wild Sun is armed for the front lines. Their debut album, "Little Truths," was released nationally in September of 2015 by American Laundromat Records. Motif Magazine named the album one of the "Top 20 Albums of 2015," alongside Wilco and Kendrick Lamar. In April of 2016, the band released the two-song "Rigby EP," once again working with Bryce Goggin. This year alone, Wild Sun has been mentioned by Rolling Stone, Spin, Billboard, and Entertainment Weekly, and other high profile press outlets. Wild Sun has a cover featured on the new Elliott Smith tribute, Say Yes among artists like J Mascis, Julien Baker, and Amanda Palmer. The band has played hundreds of shows and have had to opportunity to share the stage with national touring acts such as The Wombats, Eve 6, Blitzen Trapper, Rubblebucket, Langhorne Slim, Mothers, And The Kids, Quiet Life, and others. Wild Sun is currently in the studio working on their follow-up album to their critically acclaimed debut album.
There was a time where music was built on great songs, and undeniable passion. There was a time when live shows threw caution into the wind, and musicians improvised and simply made music. Those times are back, and Westerly, Rhode Island's Wild Sun are already at the party—cases cracked.
About Marvelous Liars
Marvelous Liars are a rock power-trio from New London, CT. Members include guitarist/singer Nicholas Johns, drummer Shane O'Connell, and bassist Nick Cancelmo. In just over two years they've hit the regional circuit hard, playing NYC, Rhode Island, Boston, Philly and many Connecticut shows including New London's "I Am Fest". In March 2015 they released their debut full-length album, "Another Castaway", with high praise from both fans and critics alike.
"Clustered with power chords, and stand-on-the-dance-floor-and-scream-along choruses, the tunes comprise a brisk blast of timeless rock." -R. Koster, The Day
"Through smooth charisma and unbridled amplification, New London, CT trio Marvelous Liars capture the essence of rock & roll." -New Noise Magazine
"A blossoming talent that embraces various rock influences and some indisputable classics, renders smoky riffs and delivers fun rock’n’roll with a modern edge to it."- Idioteq
"..Songs are tightly wound, with starts and stops, precise hits and accents, riffs that compel you to stick the landings." -CT Now
In June 2016, the band won three "Whalie Awards", including Best Rock Act, Best Rock Song and Indie/Rock Album of the Year. In addition to consistent regional touring, the band recently wrapped up their sophomore full-length album, tracked on the Neve mixing console that captured Nirvana's In Utero, John Lennon's Double Fantasy, and AC/DC's Back in Black. The band bleeds rock and roll, but hints of blues and punk are blended into the equation too. Marvelous Liars influences include Queens of the Stone Age, The Beatles, Arctic Monkeys and many more. Their new full-length album was released by the Telegraph Recording Company in July 2017, available on Itunes, Amazon, Spotify, & Pandora and more.
