Brilliant Sun / Press

“Brilliant Sun have a very beatlesque sound to them, they specialize in light almost pop oriented arrangements, and songs that tell a story. People that know me also know that I am no fan of The Beatles, in fact I have never owned a single record by them. But that is not to say that I do not appreciate their contribution to the music world. Brilliant Sun, and Steve Lee Phelps as their main songwriting force have created a wonderful brand of music.”

“These may be new kids on the block, though by no means new to the music industry. While certainly well known in the Seattle music scene they are beginning to gain traction in other markets, I have it from a reliable source that a batch of CD’s is currently on route to Japan. Their first single from the self titled CD is track one Perfect Girl, and recently achieved some playtime on the NBC affiliate station KIRO. In todays ever shrinking radio market that is quite the achievement.”

“The Brilliant Sun bear an incredible resemblance to the 60s powerhouse band, The Kinks. And like The Kinks, The Brilliant Sun will sadly be looked over for their rather quirky way of approaching music. The quirkiness resonated predominately in the odd vocal approach of singer, Steven Lee Phelps. It has it’s flaws, but yet all those flaws sound so right. The Brilliant Sun are a four piece band hailing from Seattle.. They exercise their form of 60s light and effervescent pop-rock with a bright mood and an honest demeanor. The music is well grounded and allows for immediate connection with listeners. The music veers away from heavy complexities, yet never sounds shallow and has plenty of depth.”
