Terraplane Sun shines bright (Created June 13, 2013)
Meet Terraplane Sun. This five-pice quintet from Venice, California blends the sounds of blues/folk in a way that has garnered them plenty of exposure, indeed.
If you want a little history on Terraplane Sun, it goes like this. Daniel Mead, Paul Roach and James Barak all grew up with a love for music, their independent collections boasting dobros, banjos, and even djembe drums. If that doesn't sound like three guys who were destined to find each other, what does? And that wide array of music genres came into play when these three men came together, their sound so unique it couldn't really be defined.
After deciding to produce his own album entitled "Del Sol Project" set to release in the fall 2012, Roach added bass player Dave Howe and renowned Drummer Brent Wetli to the mix, not to mention the percussion of Alex Bartolomey. Together, they are formed a diverse, entertaining live band set for big things in 2013.
Terraplane Sun grabbed the national spotlight when their song "Is There A Way" was featured on the Showtime series "Nurse Jackie." Next, "Selfish Ways" played on FX's show "Damages" and "Bloodshot Eyes" and "Hey Rat" made their way onto "The League." Most recently, their song "Trouble" was picked up as the theme song for the new A&E show "Relapse," and "Ya Never Know" could be heard in the season finale of USA Network's "Suits."
The group recently played a 2013 winter West Coast tour with Shwayze, and the world premiere of their new video for their song "Get Me Golden" was featured on MTVU, MTV.com and MTV Buzzworthy on June 6, 2013.
