BLACKLIGHT SUN BIO
The duo of Ryan Harmon and Brian Fassbender, otherwise known as Blacklight Sun, provide an eclectic blend of music, ranging from bluegrass and blues to progressive-infused rock. The two met in high school and found quickly they shared a love for music. Eventually they started jamming together, with Ryan playing guitar and Brian on bass. From the very beginning, they realized they loved the same kinds of music. Hours would go by covering Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, and eventually the two started venturing into other bands like Widespread Panic, Phish and the Grateful Dead. These groups, along with more progressive music like Rush, Yes and Porcupine Tree, have made their mark on Blacklight Sun’s sound. Over the years, Blacklight began putting music together for a project that would be entitled Moment to Reality. The band is currently engaged in a new concept album project entitled Casting The Edge. With Blacklight setting their sights high for this new project, Casting will feature all-new music following a storyline of adventure and triumph. Always looking to venture into new territory and make new music, Blacklight Sun is that sonic stew you’ve been looking for- a little bit of everything thrown together that goes down just right.
