____________________

Bohemian Sunrise has independently released four full-length albums, 'Soulstice', 'intoxicating', 'It's in the Cards', and their current recording, 'It Won't Be Long Now'. Their sophomore album, 'intoxicating', features tracks recorded live to over 200 fans at Indre Studios. An Honest Tune voted ‘intoxicating’ a Top Ten CD, saying, “World Beats and sinewy rhythm and blues blend together to create a parking lot masterpiece.”

  Bohemian Sunrise was formed by a close-knit group of friends with the common goal of simply making the best music they could. Based in the Philadelphia/South Jersey region, Bohemian Sunrise takes their raw, rhythmic sound to unprecedented levels through their creative instrumentation, insightful songwriting, and genre-transcending arrangements. Building their success through hard work and consistently winning over audiences at prime shows throughout their career, Bohemian Sunrise has earned the honor of sharing the stage with Rusted Root at Philadelphia's famous Electric Factory, and playing at The Susquehanna Bank Center on the Waterfront in Camden, NJ with the remaining members of The Grateful Dead and Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers, in addition to joining The Steve Miller Band at DE’s Frawley Stadium. Bohemian Sunrise has also gained a following in the clubs opening for headliners including Vince Welnick (The Grateful Dead and The Tubes), The String Cheese Incident, The Recipe, Jazz Mandolin Project, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Deep Banana Blackout, Peter Prince & Moon Boot Lover, The Bomb Squad, and Vinyl at venues including the Theater of Living Arts (TLA) and the Trocadero in Philadelphia, NJ’s famous Stone Pony and Conduit, MD's Funk Box/8x10 Club and Recher Theater, and the legendary Stone Balloon in Delaware. Their upcoming tour will include stops at many legendary and noteworthy venues along the east coast.

  Bohemian Sunrise diversifies their schedule by combining opening for national acts in larger venues with headlining venues like World Cafe Downstairs Live, North Star Bar, and The Stanhope House. To bring in the New Year, they sold out their New Year's SleepOver Shindig, one in a series of successful self-produced shows. Merchandising is also an integral part of this band’s business; their list of almost twenty items includes tops, stickers, and incense. In addition, the band offers many of their live recordings free at shows and with on-line purchases, as well as a video for the fan favorite, Kiss it All Goodbye (on their 2007 album, It's in the Cards). Bohemian Sunrise has consistently proven their ability and broadened their elemental sound, to appeal to both long-standing and new fans. Unswerving dedication, effective networking, relevant opportunities, and comprehensive experience have helped to cultivate Bohemian Sunrise into the professional, talented force they have worked hard to become.

a modern classic - always a good idea
been hearing a lot about this band, so I took a chance and I'm glad I did. This CD is one of those greats that you can listen to anytime and is perfect for any occassion - especially sittin' around chillin'. The drums, the lyrics, the musicianship, the vocals, the songwriting, even the packaging - all gets 5 stars. This is one talented band, I really dig the free CD I got with it, too.

Relix Magazine

unity is certainly evident in their rich polyrhythmic and Latin-influenced dance
"...unity is certainly evident in their rich polyrhythmic and Latin-influenced danceable music...The latest disc promises much. The interspersing of tight songs and flowing improvisations is perfectly balanced. The nine-minute “JaPong” encompasses most of the band’s strengths and is a highlight of this polished 70-minute disc."

An Honest Tune

With intoxicating, Bohemian Sunrise has created another extension in music's his
World beats collide with Caribbean rhythms, fluid organic rock, and pop song craft on intoxicating, the bright, promising new release from NJ's Bohemian Sunrise. Recorded in front of a live studio audience at Indre Studios in Philadelphia, PA, and mixed and mastered by Mike Richelle, intoxicating is one of those recordings that worms its way deep inside your soul and never leaves. Truly addicting, the seductive rhythms and melodies that comprise this stellar CD are created by six young gentlemen. What's so impressive about Bohemian Sunrise is their ability to keep such a wide range of contrasting styles compacted into one uniform sound. The sweet calypso strains of "Earth Razor", for instance, mix with a mournful reggae beat and jazz balladry without changing tempo. The ride is so natural, one could mistake this unit as a band of old veterans, whose chops are completely integrated with one another. "Earth Razor" features the daring keyboards and vocals of Jimi Chiara and the sensitive bass playing of Dustin Blackshear. Ed Clark's and Joe Brady's guitars play off each other beautifully, creating gentle melodies that bring to mind sunny beaches and warm sunsets. Dom Clark’s multi-dimensional drumming introduces "Apu the Pimp", a middle-eastern sounding rave up that changes rhythmic directions, and grooves all over in true butt shakin' form. The outrageous percussion of Mike Cunningham figures prominently on Apu. Amazingly, the combination of Cunningham and Dom Clark's furious pounding on Apu resembles the fury of ten tub thumpers all slamming together in a single percussive symphony.
"No Man is an Island" is a smooth-flowing rhythm and blues number, colored by Ed Clark and Joe Brady's inflective rhythm and lead playing. Chiara and Blackshear's vocals mesh together perfectly, bringing the Marivn Gaye-type melody to a seemingly natural progression until the group changes the speed of No Man. Soon, the jazz jams are coming fast and furious through Chiara's sweeping improvisations on synthesizer, and Blackshear's liquid throb on bass. "Sweet Release" is another endearing Afro-Cuban influenced composition, complicated by unsettling shifts in pacing and manipulated musical bridges with avant garde musings. Chiara's keys float above it all, carrying the driving jazz workouts through uncharted territory, while being aided by Brady and E. Clarks searing solos.
Just like Rusted Root did on When I Woke, Bohemian Sunrise begins intoxicating with percussion, this time the polybeats of Mike Cunningham. Then, the group launches into the sizzling, world beat meets Latin dance floor smoker, "Ghost of Many Colours". The warm, breezy feelings of island grooves come to life on the first single, "Fireflies". A heavy, bluesy bottom end anchors the lullaby when Dom Clark's solid backbeat glues itself into Blackshear's light bass accents. The result is a hypnotic trance of rhythm, swaying back and forth under imagined moonlit nights. The essence of concert parking lot scenes and dancing, are embodied in the free, happy sounds of the second single, "JaPong". "Spin around, spin around...until my feet are dancin' on dry ground," [Chiara] intones as Bohemian Sunrise extends the rocking mid-section with Brady and Ed Clark's intertwining solos. With intoxicating, Bohemian Sunrise has created another extension in music's historical lines of percussive-heavy jambands. Whether it's Santana or Rusted Root or Bohemian Sunrise, there will always be a place on this earth for the music of the soul to unite all under the flag of island grooves, raw power of instrumentation, and strong sharing of musical ideas. Intoxicating is just that, and it will leave you smiling all the way to the next show.
