Thereâ€™s something new under the sun...
Where the sea meets the sky, somewhere between Santa Barbara and the island of Jamaica, comes The Sunshine Brothers; a feels-good-as-a cool drink at sunset on a summer beach, reggae-influenced collaboration between producer/songwriter Christopher Tyng and singer/songwriter Owen Plant.
The Sunshine Brothersâ€”an upbeat mixture of reggae, surfer-pop, and world beat... music that evokes that certain intangible feeling of summertime euphoria, or â€œsongs for drinking rum on a boat.â€
After playing some of the early demos to friends and acquaintances, interest began to build around the project. Music icon and friend David Crosby graciously laid down backing vocals for the track â€œLove Again.â€
The band is backed up by a full rhythm section and horns. Their Santa Barbara beach-side sound is rounded out by genre-bending influences such as The Police, Paul Simon, Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytals, Harry Belafonte, David Gray, and Norah Jones. The Sunshine Brothersâ€™ debut album \"Live by the Sun\" is set for a Spring 2008 release.
So hit play, crack open a Red Stripe, pull up a palm tree and chill out in the laid-back, care-free world of The Sunshine Brothers.
