FROM THE SUN (CA & Friends) / Bio

Formally known as CHRIS AGUILAR & FRIENDS.

What began as a solo/acoustic project, years ago, has beautifully matured into a complete power-house 5-piece band. Quin Dixon (Drums/Percussion) and Tj Opheikens (Bass) together form a solid, but groovy backbone. They not only hold it down, but take each song to a new level. Corey Chapman (Guitar/Backing Vox) and Vella Price (Keys) together form unique textures, catchy rhythms, and melodies. All of this combines with the unique songwriting, guitar virtuosity, and soulful vocal styles of Chris Aguilar (Guitar/Vox) to create an unforgettable aural & visual experience.

From the Sun is the true definition of a fusion band, their music cannot be contained, nor described by any specific genre; but they are sure to please any crowd of listeners. They are definitely the experience!
