With all members 22 or 23 years old, the band met in the counter-cultural hub city of Santa Cruz, CA, citing "pizza, horticulture and Neil Percival Young," as common interests. "With the forest and ocean as our back drop, we were drawn to each other as fellow musicians, friends, and lovers," they say.
Drawing musical inspiration from Black Sabbath, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Can and Creation records, Sleepy Sun forged their sound from intense jams; "free flowing, heady, 'where am I?' type jamming," as the members describe.
Though they're now in the one-time home of psychedelia, it's not San Francisco that influences their sound. "It comes more from Northern California itself more than any scene or city," they say. "There truly is nowhere on Earth like our little corner of the country where the redwoods smother the ocean."
