Band Biography

Though Sunrise has called many places home, Washington D.C. is his point of origin. At age fifteen, he moved to Paris, France. "It drastically changed my whole life," he explains, "it was so different. There's no comparison between Arlington, Virginia and Paris. It opened my eyes to culture and language. Artists and musicians were everywhere. It's so much more acceptable to make a living out of street music and art." In response to this artistic awakening, Sunrise learned to play guitar and joined the ranks of street musicians. His travels took him across Europe where he made a living performing in the streets, subways, restaurants and terraces. "I'd sit at the cafes and play guitar all night long," he recalls. He was gaining valuable life experience too, and perhaps meeting some women on the way. "That's one of the main reasons I hung out in Switzerland so much," he laughs. But like all idylls it came to an end. He returned to the U.S., first to New York City, then to Florida. "I'd stay up all night and play guitar on the beach, then watch the sunrise. It was the most beautiful thing I'd seen, " he remembers. After a two-year stint studying music theory in college he returned for a short tour of Europe. Then, back in Washington, he met a group of activists who changed the course of his destiny. The Peace Park Anti-Nuclear Vigil is a group of activists who have been stationed across from the White House continuously since 1981. When Sunrise met them (in 1986) he divested himself of his possessions and joined their encampment. He worked with the group to feed the homeless and raise consciousness, and was subsequently incarcerated for fifty days for the "crime" of sleeping in the park. After his release, another odyssey was in order, a trip to that most European of American cities -- San Francisco. In California, Sunrise built a recording studio, began experimenting with studio techniques, and wrote and recorded his debut CD, "It's All Right". Within the borders of these fourteen tracks, he has distilled his musical philosophy to its purest essence, playing all of the instruments himself and delivering a thought-provoking debut. In collaboration with other like-minded musicians, he has also initiated the organization, BASAMA (Bay Area Striving Artists and Musicians Association), a supportive network. With an additional bounty of material - at least two album's worth - Sunrise continues to evolve: as a writer, musician, producer and spiritual entity. For Sunrise Spiritual Harmony it's been a long road to this place in time. But each day, each lyric and each song continues to provide a signpost for destinations still unseen. "Music is life," states Sunrise.

"Sunrise Harmony, It's All Right is better than just all right. It is an outstanding compilation of bluesy rock tunes. Don't take my word for it. Listen to the Real Audio samples and see for yourself. Pick up a copy now at All Independent Music."

"Sunrise Harmony is an excellent (one man) band. Listen to the guitar and the vocals as you relax to the music and let it take you away. Its All Right is a well mixed and thought out compilation of bluesy type rock tunes. The rhythm section is tight and works well together. The lead is perfect. And the vocals are outstanding. All in all Its All Right is a CD that shouldn't be overlooked."
