On The Sun
Skyflight Productions presents an evening with On The Sun from Brooklyn, NY on Wednesday March 27, 2019 at The Albert S George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. 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 Cohens "Bird On A Wire; the standalone single, She Gets Around, and has spent the majority of 2018 touring in support of their latest effort Gratuity Not Included, appearing at a variety of music festivals including performances at SXSW, the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, Off The Record Fest and Sail Across The Sun. The group has also cultivated a close relationship with Sofar Sounds resulting in a series of intimate concerts across the country and a recent residency in Chicago.
On The Suns 2018 album Gratuity Not Included is an artistic milestone for the band, as it represents the best capture yet of the span of their artistic continuum, showcasing its always-shifting expanded lineups with added horns, synthesizers, and lush female guest vocalists. It also represents a new era of assured artistry after a period of tireless touring and soul searching. The self-produced seven-track collection, favors full band live on-the-floor takes as the core foundation to construct songs, and then reimagines these recordings with soulful and tasteful experimental studio wizardry.
Up next, On The Sun will issue a vinyl version of Gratuity Not Included, a collection of live tracks from recent tours, and another as-yet untitled collection of new music in 2019.
