City of the Sun---the Indie/Flamenco/Rock guitar duo taking New York City by storm---was born in 2010, in subways, streets, and local bars, where they gained an enthusiatic and devoted fan following. Founding musicians John Pita and Adam Road began playing small shows at bars and cafés throughout the city. Along the way, they had the opportunity to collaborate with the likes of Steve Kazee, Lucas Papaelias, and Oscar Isaac. The band completed a residency at Hotel Chantelle and continue to perform around Manhattan, notably: famed production Sleep No More, acclaimed Broadway show Once cast parties, the Mondrian Hotel, Milk Studios, the Double Seven, the Bowery Hotel, and the Ford Project Gallery.
In October 2012, COS introduced newest member Avi Snow. They continue to record and develop their sound, building upon the guitar rhythm and riff foundation with vocals and electronic soundscapes.
Audiences are amazed by the skill the young guitarists have cultivated--fans have described them as "tremendous", "powerful", "mesmerizing", and "a re-invention of acoustic music." They have been interviewed for the Nylon Guys Magazine blog, among others.
