FROM THE BEGINNING is the exciting new CD from the Los Angeles-based band 7th Sun. "A rockin’ disc," writes ALL ACCESS MAGAZINE. "(the track) ‘New Generation’ comes alive with honky-tonk piano and gritty slide guitar leads…(lead vocalist/guitarist) JT Curtis has one of the more sincere voices around, and what he has to say is well worth listening to."
7TH Sun are interviewed live on the London Garcia Show, Saturday, Jan. 3 at 5 p.m. (www.latalkradio.com ).
The band received two nominations – "Best Independent CD" and "Best Male Vocalist" (JT Curtis) – for the 5th Annual L.A. South Bay Music Awards, Saturday, February 21 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena.
In October 7th Sun recently performed to a capacity house at the Palmer Room in Los Angeles for their CD Release Party. The band describe their music as "Supernova Rock’ - a fusion of sound that runs the gamut from classic rock, progressive rock, funk rock, to alternative rock/jam band.
FROM THE BEGINNING is a high-energy concept album; the band’s instrumental firepower - with lyrics that juxtapose the uplifting idealism and the unknown darkness of modern-day culture - is driving this album into the subterranean rock market of the music industry.
The group is fronted by 22-year-old musical wunderkind, JT Curtis (lead vocals, lead guitar, main songwriter). Curtis’ musical beginnings started at an early age; his burning desire to play music has taken him from California to Austin, Texas; to New York City, where 7th Sun performed recently at renowned music spot, Kenny’s Castaways, on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village. Curtis has also written production music for CBS television, and other music houses in L.A. and in NYC.
Adam Kury (bass/co-lead vocals) provides the melodic influences and intense rhythms that drive the band. Kury also performs with the grunge band, Candlebox. Stephen Quadros (drums/backing vocals) provides intensity, precision, and originality. Quadros is also known throughout the world as "The Fight Professor," a title he procured as a broadcaster for EliteXC mixed martial art shows seen on Showtime. Michael Russeck is the band’s very talented young keyboardist, playing organ, piano and lending a hand with vocals. Russeck is also an accomplished painter and aspiring actor.
"With its timely, provocative lyrics and timeless gut-grabbing music, "From the Beginning" should launch 7th Sun into the big time. The debut album by this California band led by JT Curtis is brimming with gritty vocals, stinging guitars and heady, heartfelt harmonies. "From the Beginning" is a fresh new take on the classic roots rock sound of legendary acts like the Allman Brothers Band and Derek and the Dominos." - Steve Isreal (Syndicated Music Critic)
