City of The Sun is John Pita, Avi Snow and Zach Para. Three guys from all around the world — Ecuador, Israel, Seattle — coming together on the streets of NYC with two guitars, a box, some bells, and a sound far greater than the sum of those parts. Their music has been called “tremendous,” “powerful,” “mesmerizing,” and “a re-invention of acoustic music.” It’s acoustic, but electric, instrumental, but lyrical. It’s worldly, running the gamut from wide-screen post-rock dynamics to gypsy jazz syncopations. The band's debut full-length, To The Sun And All The Cities In Between, comes out March 4 on Chesky Records.
