Description:
“Suns of March” are six guys who have combined to form a band that has delighted tens of thousands across the Southeast and sold thousands of CD's. “Suns of March” possess undeniable talent. The founding member of the band is Michael Wright. Michael’s musical contributions are lead vocals, guitar, and harmonica. Michael, along with Charles Smith is from Montgomery, AL, where the band is based. Charles adds a different dimension to the band's sound on slide and lead guitar. The rhythm section consists of Tom Shrout (Pensacola, FL) on bass guitar and Steve Stewart (Miami, FL) on drums. Zebulon Bowles (Arcata, CA) contributes as well on electric fiddle and mandolin. “Suns of March” skillfully blend the lead vocals of Michael with the voices of Charles, and Zebulon. The groups stage presence guarantees that everyone will take notice and listen. What else would you expect from a group that has shared the stage with such greats as Brad Cotter, Damon Johnson (Brother Cane), Diamond Rio, Edwin Mccain, Joan Jett, Josh Todd (Buckcherry), Josh Turner, The Kicks, Lance Miller, Loverboy, Matt Lindahl, and McQueen Street? There is no substitute for seeing “Suns of March” perform live. However, if you are unable to catch a performance, you can check out the band’s new album, Bulletproof Heart. The album contains eleven songs. Like chapters form novels, these songs combine to form more than just 3-minute statements but rather a story, an idea, and philosophy; thus, the band did not simply write songs, but an album. "Suns of March" produced the CD themselves. Jeff Tomei (Matchbox 20, Smashing Pumpkins, Jerry Cantrell) mixed Bulletproof Heart while Rodney Mills (Pearl Jam, REM, Journey) mastered it. Another element arose from the making of the disc; Eddie Wohlford joined the band on piano and organ. Eddie has played with such stars as Beth Neilson Chapman and “Styx” guitarist Tommy Shaw. Bulletproof Heart starts off with an up-tempo number: "I Need Love." The song is one of the closest numbers to mainstream the band has to offer; the track could easily fit into almost any popular music genre with its' memorable hooks. The third song on the album, San Jose, was the groups first single which gained exposure for the group in over 25 countries. The fourth track on Bulletproof Heart is an upbeat number called "Hanna." “Hanna” starts out with a country/southern rock feel, then, in the middle, there is a killer New Orleans / Dixieland jazz style take that comes out of nowhere. The only melancholy song on the album is entitled "Sentimental Moonlight." A very nice use of the violin in a classical sense is exhibited in this song. The latter part of the album contains a hard rock attitude. The song "I Learned It from You" is what everyone wants to say to that ex that just ripped his or her heart to shreds and the title track “Bulletproof Heart” solidified the groups fan base in over 40 countries. This entire album exhibits elements of Southern pride and hard rock edginess. Music on their terms. One of the elements that makes "Suns of March" so unique is the use of the fiddle. Come on, how many rock bands use a fiddle? Or still use three part harmonies? Plain and simply they are doing it their way. No selling out just pure, soul felt music.
