S.U.N. (SOMETHING UNTO NOTHING) drummer Brian Tichy (WHITESNAKE) underwent surgery on New Years Day after breaking his collarbone while mountain biking. According to an update on the band's Facebook page "Brian's surgery went well - things are looking up!! Thank you for all your good vibes - Sun will rise!"
The photo below was taken before the surgery.
S.U.N. released their debut full-length self-titled album digitally on November 20th, 2012 via Robo Records. On Tuesday, January 15th the CD will be available physically with distribution through Fontana/Universal Music Distribution. The video for 'I'm The One' has been released and can be viewed below:
Legendary multi-platinum selling Canadian vocalist, Juno Award winner and Canadian Idol judge SASS JORDAN, has teamed up with songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Brian Tichy, known for his tours of duty with BILLY IDOL, FOREIGNER, OZZY OSBOURNE and currently WHITESNAKE, to record an album of anthemic rock songs, under the band name S.U.N. Previously working together is what drove Jordan and Tichy to collaborate on new music.
“I had played drums on Sass' Rats record” explains Tichy. “I knew she was one of the best rock singers out there. So after many years, we reconnected and tried a bit of writing together.”
Both felt that in order to write the best, trend-free music they could, they needed to get away so they hunkered down for two weeks to write.
“We didn't realize where we were going when we started out,” says Jordan. “As we continued the songwriting path from the quintessential rock tunes 'Burned' to 'Mobile Again' to 'Nomad' and on... The whole thing started to take shape in the form of a 70's odyssey, a time travel trajectory.”
Completing the all-star ensemble is bassist Michael Devin (Whitesnake, JASON BONHAM'S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE, KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD) and drummer Tommy Stewart (GODSMACK, LO PRO, EVERCLEAR, FUEL).
Jordan has an innate talent capable of conveying powerful emotion through heart-stomping, primal, rock-and-roll singing. S.U.N’s debut album, self-produced by Jorday and Tichy and recorded in Canyon Country, CA, is explosive, crushing, real and soulful with its natural fusion of blues and rock. Jordan's vocal intensity proves a perfect match for the high-energy guitar playing of Tichy and her bandmates which provide the unique music palette that is S.U.N.
