Sun K are celebrating their top ten inclusion in The Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class, which is Canada's premier artist development opportunity. This week, the judging for the final three will take place, and the finalists will be announced.
The band released their debut album 'Northern Lies' this past spring via MapleMusic Recordings and have rapidly developed a reputation for their bluesy, folksy, dirty rock sound. Produced by Cone McCaslin (The Strumbellas ,Operation MD) and mixed by Gus Van Go and Werner F - the record has quickly garnered critical acclaim.
"The band's sure touch and dynamics on Montano's carefully constructed songs that go from pensive to rousing and recall Lou Reed, Joel Plaskett and the Gaslight Anthem."
-The Toronto Star
"Something truly amazing comes together in Northern Lies that makes me want to hear more."
With a successful national tour already under their belt, the band felt like it was time to head out again for the fall. Live, they are sonically dynamic - keyboardist Stuart Retallack, guitarist Kevin Michael Butler, bassist JuHang Sin, drummer Scott Tiller and front-man Kristian Montano deliver intense, charismatic, and driving shows that will captivate all in attendance.
