"Little Truths" Debut album released 9/18/2015.



Wild Sun stands apart from the noise and imitation with their honest brand of heartfelt rock and roll. In a time when every channel is overloaded with the same old thing, Wild Sun is fresh and raw, and yet accessibly familiar. In less than two years together, the trio of alternative rockers have earned their stay as one of the most promising bands around. With their debut album produced by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Phish), frequent radio airplay (CMJ Top 200 Chart), and a live show that breaks bar sales records, Wild Sun is armed for the front lines. Their debut album, "Little Truths," was released nationally in September of 2015 by American Laundromat Records. Motif Magazine named the album one of the "Top 20 Albums of 2015." In April of 2016, the band released the two-song "Rigby EP," once again working with Bryce Goggin. This year alone, Wild Sun has been mentioned by Rolling Stone, Spin, Billboard, and Entertainment Weekly, among others. Wild Sun has a cover featured on the upcoming Elliott Smith tribute, Say Yes alongside artists like J Mascis and Amanda Palmer. The band has played hundreds of shows and have had to opportunity to share the stage with national touring acts such as The Wombats, Eve 6, Mothers, And The Kids, Quiet Life, and others.

There was a time where music was built on great songs, and undeniable passion. There was a time when live shows threw caution into the wind, and musicians improvised and simply made music. Those times are back, and Rhode Island's Wild Sun are already at the party—cases cracked.  

Wild Sun is: Glenn Kendzia, Paul Fazio, and Padraic Fazio

"They've been in business for just over one year, but already sound like seasoned pros." - The Providence Phoenix

Nominated for Motif's 2014 "Breakthrough Act of the Year"

"Heartfelt and genuine, the trio come together to create amazing compositions that will stick with the listener." - Vanyaland

"Passion that could be felt shining though the performance. Kendzia pours himself into every line of every song, with a rawness seemingly drawn from his personal experiences." - Pancakes and Whiskey

"When Glenn sings, he feels it—the music, the song, the lyrics, the truth. You can tell that he sings of a deep and personal truth. Behind the jokes is someone who was meant to play music." - 95.5 WBRU

"Full of irresistible vibes, wit, and charm." - New Noise Magazine 

"You won't find a more convincing probe of troubled relationships in today's 21st century world." - SoundWaves

"Takes the listener through a ride of rock-rooted alternative numbers, each as passionate as the one before it." - Under the Gun Review

"The old rock & roll sound will throw you to a few decades past. Wild Sun has that sound that you probably haven't heard in a long time; the balance of old rock songs with that modern alternative touch that will make you want more."  - Loudlight News

"Their album, 'Little Truths,' is so fresh and powerful. Just starting out, Wild Sun already has a relatable, pure, and mature sound." - The Edge

"An original act that restores faith in the local scene." - SO Rhode Island 

"They've been praised by music critics and when they recently played Pianos in Manhattan's Lower East Side, they sang to a sell out crowd. The live show is something to be experienced...it's passionate, energetic, and people respond." - The Westerly Sun
