"Suns of March"
Debuts in the International Music Scene

Click here to listen to Suns Of March First Single, "San Jose"!

   Montgomery, AL - November 9, 2004 - Suns of March is an alternative / southern / rock band based out of Montgomery, AL. Their release of their first CD "Bulletproof Heart" at the beginning of this year was immediately realized by the international music community and has continued to spread accordingly without any hesitation. With all of the musical choices available today, people seem to be hungry for groups that have held on to an ideal of writing and recording songs that convey the true heart of the artist. This is what Suns of March does so well without concession.
   The Suns of March style has best been described as "a mesh of hard rock with a long-running vein of well-mined Western." This alternative / southern / rock band from Montgomery, AL is really doing something different and making a unique contribution to the international music scene at the same time.
   Suns of March use of the electric fiddle and slide guitar in their music is one of the distinguishing aspects of this bands individualistic identity. But more importantly than just writing great music, the group offers themes of hope and encouragement in their albums.
   They have shared the stage with artists such as Brad Cotter, Diamond Rio, Edwin McCain, Joan Jett, Josh Todd (Buckcherry), Josh Turner, The Kicks, Lance Miller, Loverboy, and Matt Lindahl. They have also worked with the legendary producers Jeff Tomei (Matchbox 20, Smashing Pumpkins, Jerry Cantrell) and Rodney Mills (Pearl Jam, REM, Journey). In addition to all of this, Suns of March also finished as a semi-finalist out of thousands of entries in the Independent Music World Series, the only contest the group has ever entered.
   Referring to the bands first single, The Valdosta Times said, "'San Jose,' a Suns of March song on the band's CD, 'Bulletproof Heart,' is a grinding mesh of Old West rock, like galloping through a desert with an electric guitar and a posse hot on the trail. Or think 'Gunsmoke's' Matt Dillon carrying a Stratocaster instead of a six-shooter: That's the gritty nature of this band's beast."
   The Auburn University Plainsman described Suns of March as "a breakthrough Southern rock group, that melds alternative, classical and Southern-style genres."
   Upon seeing Suns of March perform with Diamond Rio, The Aumnibus said "A rock band with an electric fiddle and a mandolin! Blasphemy in the music world one might think; however, just listen to the group's vocal and instrumental combinations and you will have the 'Suns of March experience."
   Jeff Tomei (Matchbox 20, Smashing Pumpkins, Jerry Cantrell) said of the groups first CD, "Bulletproof Heart mixes rock, country, pop and alternative to create a record full of great songs that are fun to listen to. It sounds like a band having fun making a record."
   In writing about Suns of March, Montgomery's Journey Magazine said, "Suns of March have melded together a unique blend of vocals and instruments with an overall vision that makes this CD rare and special. I was impressed by how quickly I was singing along and feeling the passion behind the music - eventually not wanting the CD to end. As the word gets out on this project and Suns of March, their fan base will skyrocket."
   Finally, Blue Cat's, one of the United States' most esteemed live music venues in Knoxville, TN said of the group, "Suns of March is always a pleasure to work with...from the load in to enjoying a high energy fun show. They definitely know how to work the crowd and their fans are some of our best clientele. Every time I work with them I know it is going to be a success."
   Suns of March is still one of the newest groups out but has already been generating the type of recognition and hype you would expect from a seasoned, well-established group. They are breaking new ground and once the word is out regarding their musical integrity, uniqueness, and people's ability to relate to their songs, many will come to know Suns of March as a permanent fixture to the international music scene.
