New Music Heaven : Brother Sundance

September 10, 2017

At two years old, Brother Sundance was drumming in a way that convinced his father, a professional South Florida drummer, that he had a musical prodigy on his hands. What started as playtime quickly became a passion as he taught himself to drum his favorite songs. From there came the guitar and a realization that the now 18-year had found his true passion.

"In my freshman year of high school, I picked up a guitar and that was it. That day changed everything. From that point forward, all I could do was music. It was the first time I had ever been able to create melodies — full songs, potentially — and I loved it," said the now-named Brother Sundance. During the intermediate step in his metamorphosis, Brother Sundance organized a band he named Wallace, which played in the South Florida underground circuit for a year, around the age most teenage boys are focused on getting their driver's license. Through Wallace, a strong fan base was cultivated which transitioned to support Brother Sundance.

As Brother Sundance emerged, he focused on his voice, chose the piano as his songwriting instrument of choice, and started exploring the complex world of production. To manage this shift, he was home schooled so he could focus on two loves: music and philosophy. Sundance also wrote parts for accompanying female vocalists that added a whole new dimension for the overall sound of the music. By May of 2017, he was finished with his new EP Honey.
