While Canadian bred band Beyond the Sun may be new to the country scene, they are far from strangers to the musical spotlight. Made up of three tight-knit brothers, the group of singer Colin, guitarist Phil and drummer Dalton Radu grew up in the small town of Bowmanville, Ontario. It all started with plastic guitars and living room concerts for their parents at the ages of 6, 8 and 11. Little did the three know at the time that just over a decade later they would be hearing themselves on radio and performing for a 7,000 person sold-out crowd at Puerto Rico’s Wild Summer Festival. With traces of their influences – which include artists like Coldplay, Billy Currington, Bruce Springsteen and Florida Georgia Line – threaded into each one of their songs, their sound is a progressive mix that is attracting both diehard country fans and pop enthusiasts. On the heels of acts like Chris Lane, COIN and Ryan Follese, the trio has relocated to Nashville, Tenn. where they are celebrating the release of their new single, “Cruisin’ Round Town,” a head-bobbing country anthem hitting radio airwaves this summer.
