About City of the Sun
Created in 2010, in the subways, streets, and local bars of New York City, City of the Sun has a distinctly eclectic sound—a mélange of flamenco, blues, and indie/folk rock. The band’s influences include Rodrigo y Gabriela, Led Zeppelin, Al di Meola, Dave Matthews Band, David Broza, Pink Floyd, John Mayer, Paco de Lucia, John Butler Trio, Jack Johnson, Bob Dylan, and Bon Iver. Their smooth tones are accompanied by technical flourishes that only enhance the experience that fans have described as “tremendous”, “powerful”, “mesmerizing”, and “a re-invention of acoustic music.”
The band’s notable gigs include famed production Sleep No More, acclaimed Broadway show Once cast parties, the Mondrian Hotel, Milk Studios, the Double Seven, the Bowery Hotel, and Paul Rowland’s Ford Project Gallery. In early 2013 they supported rapper/poet K’naan on his nationwide U.S. tour, which included performances at the Highline Ballroom in New York, the Troubador in Los Angeles, the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hotel in Washington D.C., and Royale in Boston. Recently the band was invited to open for Chromeo and DJ Questlove at a Seeds of Peace charity event in NYC. They continue to record and develop their sound, building upon the guitar rhythm and riff foundation with vocals and electronic soundscapes.
