Sundress is an American Psychedelic-Pop band, formed in Denton, Texas in 2010.
Sundress was created by principle members Ryan McAdams, bassist Drew McCary and guitarist Kennon Talley. After several names (This Old House, ODYSSEY), due to legal matters and band member changes, keyboardist Jim Harrington and drummer Brack Cantrell were brought in and now make up the bands' current lineup.
Immediately, Sundress started to carve out their spot in the music world by receiving copious amounts of attention from the media and recognition as 'Best New Act' out of North Texas. Since their inception the band has played almost every major festival in Texas, supporting some of the most important new artists and even received a nod from The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne.
Their brand of ethereal dream-pop marries many different influences ranging from Pink Floyd and The Beatles but with the modern flavor of Slowdive and Sparklehorse.
Sundress has had the fortune to share the stage with acts such as Washed Out, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Mister Heavenly, The Clientele, Vetiver, Tame Impala, and Stardeath and White Dwarfs.
Onward, soldiers is a pestal and mortar blend of Laurel Canyon song craft, Athens Ga. pop, and North Carolina heart and soul; a true American sound.
Onward, Soldiers is new and ancient, hip and sweet, ethereal and raw. Comprised of musicians between the ages of 25 and 45, their range of experience represents a deep pool of musical influences. Their debut release titled "Ghosts In This Town" is a beautifully crafted specimen sure to captivate anyone who enjoys Indi rock or Americana music.
Wilmington, North Carolina, 2011 – Music is life and finding Onward, Soldiers' music just makes life sweeter. Listeners enjoy a brand of Folk/Indie/Americana that they can truly wrap their minds around. Onward, Soldiers has made it clear that their first release "Ghosts In This Town," is a mission statement; a shape of things to come.
Sean Thomas Gerard is the singer-songwriter of the band. His songs are ageless and heartbreakingly poetic. The band members Jarett Michael (bass, vocals), Lincoln Morris (electric guitar) and Kevin Rhodes (drums, keyboards, vocals), combine to give the words flight.
Soulfully crafted, "Ghosts In This Town" unleashes a positive vibe that gives the impression this band genuinely loves playing music together. A clear sound complete with acoustic and electric guitars, piano and organ, a steadfast rhythm section, and razor sharp vocals. The end result is an enigmatic and serene album with plenty of twists and turns for the ears as well as the mind. Vocal harmonies and catchy strumming patterns elevate listeners and provide a message of hope and a story of leaving problems behind.
For the past decade rickoLus (Richard Colado) has been writing and recording his music in a green shed in the backyard of his parent's house in Jacksonville Beach, FL. In that time he has produced a mountain of works that for the most part have never been heard by anyone besides his friends and family. In 2007 he started a website (www.iamrickolus.com) where he made some of his music available for free and asked for donations. He has since accumulated a small following on the internet. With the finishing of his most recent album "Youngster" he set out to find a record label to help him get his music heard by more people. He found a home with Circle into Square records and Fake Four Inc. , they will be releasing "Youngster" and some of his other works in 2010
