About the ArtistOriginally conceived by multi-instrumentalist Joseph Stocker and guitarist/vocalist Zak Ward, Son of the Sun has fleshed out their already considerably lush sound with the addition of Jeremy Franklin on guitar, Steve Matthews on bass, and Brandon Delmont on drums.
What was once a muted, sparse take on rock music has become a grandiose love letter to the driving heart of Kinks style harmonies and Velvet Underground guitars.
Band tours USA with own individual equipment, unless it is a flyout date. Standard club level sound system with monitors and sound technician is always required.
For flyout dates back line requirements are:
* 3 vocal microphones
* Standard 4 piece drum kit (mic'ed)
* 3 guitar combo amplifiers (tube w/ 12 in speaker Fender brand preferred)
* 1 bass amplifier with cabinet (15 in speaker preferred)
* 4 stage monitor speakers 3 front of stage capable of strong vocal mix (1 back of stage preferred)
Please contact management at: firstname.lastname@example.org
