"Beyond The Sun Release New Single “STOP”"

Beyond the Sun just released their newest track “STOP,” which is sure to be a head-bobbing summer anthem.

“STOP is a letter to all the fake people in your life,” lead vocalist Colin Radu said in the press release announcing the single. “We were at this point in our lives that, for whatever reason, we were reconnecting with people we have nothing in common with anymore and forcing friendships. Just because you’re still ‘connected’ on Facebook or Instagram doesn’t mean you care about each other anymore.”

The trio of brothers hailing from Canada have dubbed the genre of music they create as “shuffle”, since the songs blend and cross over multiple styles of music. “STOP” definitely gives me some country, pop and even a little EDM vibes. The band has said that the single is a musical fusion of inspirations like Michael Jackson, Bleachers and mansionz.

Regardless of which style of music you classify it as, “STOP” is wildly addictive. I’ve been listening to it on repeat since it came out and I know that trend is going to continue through the summer. - Talk Nerdy With Us


"Interview: Beyond the Sun shuffle style is changing the sound of country music"

Today's country music has been transformed, as the influence of hip-hop, rap, pop, and even EDM have become the new mainstream of popular music around the globe, which has now penetrated this All-American institution of music. Now, a young Canadian band of actual brothers, Beyond the Sun are breaking down more barriers with their brand of “shuffle-mode” style of country music and a new generation of music fans are taking notice of one Nashville's most innovative bands.

"Canadian Trio Beyond The Sun Releases Debut Country Single"

Nashville’s newest trio, a Canadian band of brothers better known as Beyond the Sun, is celebrating the release of their debut country single, “Cruisin’ Round Town.” The head-bobbing summer anthem, which recounts carefree drives and small town love, is available now on all digital platforms.
Deemed “super tuneful and wildly addictive” by Music Row Magazine’s Robert K. Oermann, the track (which was co-written by the brothers: Phil, Colin and Dalton Radu) is already receiving country radio airplay.

The bandmates celebrated their release week with an appearance on the NASH FM morning show “Ty, Kelly and Chuck” for the popular “10 Minute Tune” segment Thursday, 6/15.

If you missed the segment, you can watch a video of Beyond the Sun’s performance here.
“We’re so excited to finally release this new music. ‘Cruisin’ Round Town’ was inspired by summer drives in our hometown,” remarks frontman Colin. “There’s nothing like jumping in the Jeep and listening to music with the ones you love after long tour runs on the road.”
“The bro’s have recently moved to Music City,” writes Music Row Magazine. “If the rest of their songs are this good, roll out a great big welcome mat.”

While the buzzworthy band may be new to the country scene, they are far from strangers to the musical spotlight. Beyond the Sun’s achievements in the pop world include headlining Wild Summer Festival in Puerto Rico, their debut single (“My Kind of Crazy”) reaching no. 12 on Sirius XM’s 20 on 20 and cracking into the top 100 of the Media Base chart in 2013. Now, after years of touring both the U.S. and Canada, the brothers have decided to re-focus their music to incorporate the gamut of country and rock influences they were raised on, like Billy Currington, Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen and Lynyrd Skynyrd. - The Country Note


"Foodie Friday Exclusive: Beyond The Sun"

Canadian trio, Beyond the Sun, shares their excitement over the release of their debut country single “Cruisin’ Round Town.” They talk about their plans for 2017 and who they are dying to work with! While the Canadian bred band may be new to the country world, given their talent and confidence, it’s not a question of “if,” it’s more a question of “how soon” they will break through the country music scene. Check out our interview with the three tight-knit brothers, singer Colin, guitarist Phil, and drummer Dalton Radu below!

Good Afternoon! Thank you so much for talking with Battered and Brewed! Talk to us about your debut country single “Cruisin’ Round Town.”

Colin-“Cruisin’ Round Town” was one of the songs that was written very quickly. Pretty much the whole thing was finished in 15 mins. It’s a love song about driving through the back roads of your hometown with the one you love. We’re extremely proud of it and we’re happy to finally share it with everyone....... - Battered and Brewed


"Beyond The Sun Bring Back The Shuffle"

Think back to your first ipod/iphone. Think about all of your music you had and the times you would just hit shuffle to see what comes up. For a lot of us, this was how we developed our musical taste. We didn’t stick to one genre for an entire setting, hardly ever. Some of my fondest memories of high school were driving around blaring All Time Low, T-Pain, and Dashboard.
This idea and concept of hitting “shuffle” brings us to introducing you to the Canadian Trio, Beyond The Sun. Comprised of brothers Colin (vocals), Phil (guitar), and Dalton (drummer) Radu, the trio may be new to the Nashville scene but they are no strangers to the music industry. Starting back in 2005 in Ontario, the trio began writing and performing together. I spoke with Phil and Colin about the band and what’s to come.

Wade: As brothers, how do you guys build your songs together?

Phil: 9 times out of 10 Colin has a chorus or lyric idea as a jump off point. I’ll start building lyrics, and then we give it to Dalton to take it across the finish line.

Colin: We never sit on songs. If we struggle with it from the get go we scrap it. We have about 40 songs ready that we would release as singles. We like it or we don’t. We write in batches of 11. Basically like a play list. However those batches go is up to the songs we’re making at that time.

Wade: I originally listened to “Little Kingdom”, how do you feel about that EP 3 years later?

Colin: Yea man, our debut album is called “Shuffle”, and 3 of the 15 songs come from that EP. That was the first moment of like yea, we did that. We still close our shows with the title track from that EP. We have a totally different look at it. We released it and it got us a headlining spot at a Puerto Rico festival.

Phil: We write songs for how it would sound in MetLife Stadium, Madison Square Garden, and places like that. 2015 was hard because we really only wrote one song the entire year.

Wade: So what sparked the thought of venturing into country after alternative and pop?

Phil: Everyone had jobs. Bartender, landscaper, everything a musician could be.

Colin: it was 2016 and we were doing landscaping. You’re up early, tired, and at 5am I wanted to listen to Country driving into work. I came up with a title, “Country Man’s Hands” and I was like, that screams Country.

Phil: Our parents have always worked hard for us.

Colin: My dad came to me and was like, this is the first time I don’t know if you guys are going to make it. We had a band meeting that night, got our grievances out.

Phil: That’s we decided to not have any barriers and write what we want. If it was good, we would explore it.

Wade: You’ve used the term “Shuffle”, how did that come about?

Colin: We would be writing songs for our batches and it would be like 3 pop, 3 rock, 4 country, and maybe ‘Little Kingdom’ style.

When I go to my ipod I hit shuffle. We want other artists to do what we’re doing.

Phil: We would love for Itunes to release it under the “Shuffle” genre.

Colin: Today’s Country Artists are like 90’s Pop Bands, but it’s awesome. We’re writing things that don’t fit within a barrier. We’re 4 different things at once.

Wade: How has the music community here responded to that style?

Phil: Surprisingly everyone has been really accepting of it. I think because our household growing up liked what was popular, regardless of genre, we have a little bit of everything for everyone.
Wade: If you had to add anyone to your band from Canada who would it be?

Phil and Colin: Drake. Adding that rap element. Also, just he’s Drake.

Colin: I remember when we found out Drake was releasing a Hip-Hop album. None of us thought it was going to be anything like it was or what he’s become. We were closet fans at first.

Wade: Who else are you guys into?

Phil: I’m really into Lorde, anything that Jack Antonoff touches I’m into, also Ryan Tedder.

Colin: This latest Ed Sheeran album is cover to cover what I’m into. Chris Stapleton too.
Wade: You mentioned this festival in Puerto Rico, tell us a little more about that experience.

Colin: So we got invited to play this “Wild Summer” festival. We flew down thinking we were just a support act. When we got on site they took us to this tent with green rooms set up. Slowly, as we were walking past these makeshift green rooms they take us to ours and we have an air-conditioned pimped out room. That’s when we realized we weren’t the supporters, we were the headliners.

Phil: So the band before us is playing and one of the security guards warned us that some fans were freaking out knowing we were backstage. So I ran off to the side of the stage just to see what would happen. It was like a scene out of World War Z. Quickly security grabbed me and I went backstage to tell them to try it. By the time we took the stage the crowd was ready for us.

Wade: Lastly, what do our readers need to look for from Beyond The Sun the rest of 2017?

Colin and Phil: Our two newest singles just released so be looking for visuals with those. We have 2-3 other tracks we are looking to release this year in preparation for the debut album next year. Also just playing these songs live, it’s time to see how people react to it in a live setting.

Beyond The Sun are hard at work getting ready for a big fall and start to the New Year. Find more info on them below and check out their latest releases on all streaming services.

"Beyond the Sun se consolida en Puerto Rico"

San Juan, PR (19 de octubre de 2014) – La banda canadiense, Beyond the Sun, se consolidó la noche de ayer, al presentar su espectáculo en el Coliseo de Puerto Rico, José Miguel Agrelot, como parte del evento Hot Evolution de la emisora radial Hot 102.

Con el grito, “¡Boricuas!”, de Colin, el cantante de la banda, comenzaron llenos de energía su espectáculo, arrancando gritos y aplausos de los presentes, incluyendo a su fanaticada, quienes también tuvieron oportunidad de un encuentro cercano tras bastidores con la banda, gracias a la producción del evento JS Power Promotions de la emisora Uno Radio Group. La banda presentó por primera vez los temas de su nueva producción Little Kingdom, incluyendo, My Kind of Crazy, tema que los dio a conocer en la isla.

Por su parte, Phil (guitarra y voz), Dalton (batería y voz) y Colin Radu (cantante), los tres hermanos que componen la banda, se mostraron sumamente emocionados de deleitar por tercera ocasión a su fanaticada boricua y presentarse en tan importante escenario.

“Nos llena de mucha emoción el haber formado parte de este evento y tener la oportunidad de deleitar a nuestra fiel fanaticada boricua en un escenario tan mágico como lo es el Coliseo de Puerto Rico. ¡Gracias Puerto Rico!”, sostuvieron.

Por otro lado, la Banda, que arribó a la isla el pasado jueves junto a varios familiares, tuvieron la oportunidad de visitar lugares turísticos donde quedaron encantados con la belleza de la isla, las playas, bosques y el Viejo San Juan. Además, los también embajadores de la Fundación Ronald McDonald hicieron su tradicional parada en la Casa Ronald McDonald junto a Brandi Hale, presidenta de la Fundación.

La banda Beyond the Sun, cuenta con dos álbumes de estudio, uno lanzado en el 2009 y My Kind of Crazy lanzado en el 2012. El sencillo, que lleva el mismo nombre, estuvo rotando fuerte en la emisora radial Hot 102 de Puerto Rico y se mantuvo “top 10” por ocho semanas consecutivas en el “Top 40 Mediabase” a nivel de Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico. Asimismo, su nuevo sencillo Little Kingdom, que estrenó en la radio de Puerto Rico el pasado mes de agosto, ya se encuentra disponible en la plataforma digital ITunes y próximamente, estrenarán el video de este sencillo, filmado en su totalidad, en escenarios exteriores e interiores de Puerto Rico. Su tercer álbum que lleva el mismo nombre, sale a la venta el próximo 4 de noviembre. - People Music


"Beyond The Sun filmará videoclip con público puertorriqueño"

Los hermanos Phil, Dalton, y Colin Radu, que componen la banda canadiense de pop alternativo Beyond The Sun, regresan a Puerto Rico para presentarse el sábado en el Hot Evolution en el Coliseo de Puerto Rico, un evento de la emisora radial Hot 102 FM.

En esta ocasión, además de ofrecerle a su fanaticada en la Isla sus mejores temas, estarán estrenando su sencillo “Little Kingdom”, en formato EP, que ya está disponible en las plataformas digitales, y filmarán el vídeo de ese tema en vivo con el público puertorriqueño.

“Así que todo el que asista aparecerá en el vídeo. Vamos a estar sólo media hora pero va a ser un gran show. Estamos muy emocionados y honrados de ser parte de Evolution. ‘Little Kingdom’ ha sido una canción que ha tenido una acogida increíble y la vamos a compartir con los puertorriqueños”, dijo Phil de 23 años, el mayor de los hermanos.

Es la tercera vez que el grupo viene a trabajar a Puerto Rico, pero han estado dos veces de vacaciones, y las playas de la Isla son bien conocidas para ellos pues hasta cuando no trabajan vienen. En esta ocasión aprovecharon para invitar a sus primas y a Jen, la novia de Colin Radu.

“Puerto Rico es increíble, la fanaticada que tenemos aquí, el mar, las playas. Venimos de Ontario que hace mucho frío y mañana (hoy) vamos a llevar a nuestra familia a la Bahía Luminiscente en Fajardo”, señaló Colin, el menor de los hermanos de 18 años.

Los intérpretes de “My Kind of Crazy” viven con sus padres en Ontario a pesar de la popularidad que gozan. “Mis padres nos apoyan en todo lo que hacemos y tenemos nuestro estudio en el sótano de la casa, así que bajamos las escaleras cada vez que estamos inspirados en escribir, grabar algún tema sentados en el piso, ese es nuestro mundo”, indicó Dalton de 21.

Su nueva producción, que lleva el mismo nombre del sencillo, “Little Kingdom” sale a la venta el 4 de noviembre y según Phil muestra la esencia de lo que verdaderamente son ellos a través de su música, “y creo que vamos en la dirección correcta”, afirmó Phil.

Para estos jóvenes la educación ha sido primordial en sus vidas. Empezaron en la música cuando eran unos niños, y desde que sus padres vieron su interés los pusieron a tomar lecciones. Phil ya se graduó de la Universidad de Berklee en Boston, Dalton continúa también en mayo, y Colin acaba de recibirse de escuela superior y le va a seguir los pasos a sus hermanos.

“Nuestros padres nos inculcaron la importancia de la educación y siempre han querido que no dependamos sólo de este negocio”, comentó Phil quien al igual que Dalton está soltero.

Los hermanos están aprendiendo español a través de un curso de Loretta Stone, así que dieron una muestra de lo aprendido: “corre, verde, periódico, leche, huevo y pantalón”.

Además de Beyond The Sun, El Hot Evolution presentará a Kat Dahlia, Cris Wallace y Sonus. Para información y boletos Ticketpop (787) 294-0001. - El Nuevo Dia - Puerto Rico

"Listos Beyond The Sun para enloquecer a sus fans"

La agrupación juvenil canadiense se presentará en Puerto Rico por primera vez.
El grupo juvenil canadiense Beyond The Sun se presentará por primera vez en concierto en Puerto Rico el próximo 5 de julio en el hotel Caribe Hilton, en San Juan.
Los hermanos Phil, Dalton y Colin ofrecerán un variado concierto en compañía de DJ King Arthur, con quien interpretarán una decena de canciones, incluyendo su reciente éxito My Kind of Crazy, el cual suena con insistencia a través de la emisora Hot 102.
“El concierto será en San Juan porque sabemos que ahí es que vive la mayoría de nuestra fanaticada”, expresó Phil en entrevista telefónica con Primera Hora.
El joven de 21 años de edad informó que el grupo interpretará en la presentación canciones de sus dos producciones musicales, así como algunos temas nuevos y un par de covers, que entiende que el público puertorriqueño disfrutará.
Señaló, además, que un por- ciento de la venta de los boletos del evento irá destinado a la organización Ronald McDonalds Foundation.
“Decidimos que queríamos trabajar algo con la fundación y de esa forma devolverle a Puerto Rico todo el cariño y apoyo que le ha dado a nuestra carrera”, agregó el mayor de los hermanos y guitarrista de la banda.
Dalton, por su parte, comunicó que tanto él como sus hermanos están deseosos de cantar en la Isla, la cual han visitado en dos ocasiones en calidad de turistas. En torno al éxito que ha tenido su primer sencillo en promoción en el país, el músico de 19 años de edad comentó que fue algo que los tomó a él y a sus hermanos por sorpresa.
“Me imagino que como la canción habla de una chica que le gusta la playa y tiene amigos, mucha gente de Puerto Rico se identifica porque ustedes tienen playas maravillosas y chicas hermosas, y lo sabemos porque hemos estado allá”, continuó Dalton.
El cantante y menor de los hermanos, Colin, de 16 años, agregó que el grupo también participará el 6 de julio en el evento Wild Summer Festival, de la emisora Hot 102, el cual se llevará a cabo en La Guancha en Ponce.
“Nunca imaginamos que pegaríamos en Puerto Rico y estamos sumamente agradecidos por el respaldo”, manifestó.
En torno a cómo es la dinámica de trabajo con sus hermanos, Colin señaló que es divertida y que, aunque en ocasiones difieren, la mayoría de las veces están de acuerdo musicalmente hablando.
“Es cool trabajar con ellos y no me imagino trabajando con nadie más que no sea con mis hermanos”, puntualizó.
Los boletos para el concierto de Beyond The Sun se consiguen en TicketCenter a $20 entrada general y $40 VIP (meet and greet). - Primerahora Newspaper

"El Grupo Juvenil “Beyond the Sun” Llega a Puerto Rico y Se Une a la Fundación Infantil Ronald McDonald"

Phil, Dalton y Colin Radu son los tres hermanos que componen la banda canadiense Beyond the Sun, que ha conquistado a la juventud puertorriqueña. Con su ritmo particular y sencillo, como en su más reciente tema musical, “My Kind of Crazy”, se encuentran en el Top 10 de la lista de radio Top 40 de los Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico.

Beyond the Sun cuenta con dos álbumes de estudio, uno lanzado en el 2009 y My Kind of Crazy, lanzado en el 2012. El revuelo por estos chicos en Puerto Rico ha logrado que visiten la isla, donde tendrán su primer concierto el 5 de julio en el Expo Center del Hotel Caribe Hilton, junto a DJ King Arthur como invitado especial.

Fue en la Casa Ronald McDonald en Santurce donde tuvimos la oportunidad de conocerlos, y me sorprendió la madurez de los chicos al hablar e interactuar con las familias de la Casa Ronald McDonald. Lo más que admiro de ellos es el hecho de que comenzaron desde muy temprana edad, no sólo cantando y tocando instrumentos, sino tomando clases y con una educación musical formal. Tanto así que los dos hermanos mayores, Phil y Dalton, han estudiado en Berklee College of Music en Boston, y los tres han tomado cursos con algunos de los coaches más famosos de los Estados Unidos.

Puedes ver fotos de la actividad en mi álbum de Google+ “Conociendo al Grupo Juvenil Beyond the Sun“.

Escucha mi entrevista con los hermanos, donde me contaron cómo fue que comenzó su trayectoria musical:



Para el concierto del 5 de julio, puedes conseguir los boletos a través de Ticket Center, y los boletos VIP con el “meet and greet” directamente a través de la Fundación Ronald McDonald (teléfono 787-728-7311).

También tendrán una segunda presentación el 6 de julio como parte del Wild Summer Fest de la emisora Hot 102 en La Guancha, Ponce.

Recently I had the chance to listen to some of his band’s latest release. I knew it would be good, but I was still floored by the songs, production, talent and focus. He and his brothers seem to follow a very simple formula: Write great songs; play and sing them really well.

Destin FL (PRWEB) January 16, 2013

Brother Pop Rock Trio, Beyond the Sun (BTS), announced today the success of their continuing Hard Rock Café tour. Having already performed at the legendary Hard Rock Cafés in Chicago, IL; Gatlinburg, TN; and Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, PA, BTS gains notable interest from a growing fan base and reach a milestone of 100,000 views on their video “My Kind of Crazy”. While on tour, Beyond the Sun has also received airtime on several radio stations throughout the U.S. including 96.1 WKZQ Myrtle Beach S.C., 101.1 WRIF Detroit, KWTF Radio in CA ,HGR in NJ and (Top 40) WXZO - The Planet in Burlington VT.
Beginning at the ages of 7, 9 and 12, the brothers of Beyond the Sun, Colin, Dalton and Phil Radu, were winning honors and performing at such notable venues as Canadian Music Week, the Ricoh Coliseum and the Rogers Centre in Toronto. More than a decade later, the three have honed their individual capabilities and perfected the collective and distinctive sound of BTS. And the entire family is behind the comprehensive effort – nurturing and launching Beyond the Sun with the ultimate goal to create, produce and deliver great music to a connected audience.
BTS’s background and commitment to music has resulted in the polished sound of their new EP. The dynamic and contagious energy of the song “My Kind of Crazy” is followed up with four more solid tracks on their EP. Beyond the Sun’s cohesive and professional sound can, in part, be attributed to producer Rick Beato and other expert mentors who have assisted the brothers in developing and evolving their craft. Each song on the EP highlights the artistry and skills of the individual band members, as well as their strength as unified players.
BTS has a sound that’s fresh, exciting and relevant to an audience their age but also appeals to a younger or more mature audience. With a roster of tunes that are catchy and upbeat, listeners find themselves singing along with songs that they’ve never heard before. Their strong writing skills are reflected in tracks like “Not for Me” with content that people can easily relate to. “Shine On”, a contemplative and soulful track that was co-written with Brad Stella (2012 CCMA award-winning music star from the duo, “The Stellas”), has the potential to move and inspire a person of any age.
And while each member of the band is interested in every aspect of production and the business of music, they all favor the act of performing… and it shows. “We leave everything we have up there. No regrets.” says Colin, lead singer and the youngest member of BTS. The band, as a whole, has a unique and self-assured performance style, each expressing his individual identity while functioning as an integral member of the group. Colin’s lyrical vocals are complemented by Phil’s skilled guitar playing while Dalton keeps the beat holding it all together in the pocket.
Off stage, Beyond the Sun uses social media channels to build on the relationships that they develop with their followers. Their active Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook accounts keeps their fan base interested and involved. Their philosophy in connecting with their audience is to reveal a little about themselves, listen to comments and feedback, be responsive and follow-back. With over 29,000 followers on Instagram, it’s working for them.
The last stop on their successful Hard Rock Café Tour will be in Destin, FL. This all-age venue is sure to attract a new and growing fan base. Come for dinner and stay for the show.

"Beyond The Sun- Rocketing to Stardom with BEAT100 and Their New EP Release"

With a Top 40 hit, over 100,000 YouTube hits on their latest single and riding out their first US tour with Hard Rock Café, the Ontario trio are already touching the sky with their rock/pop magic.
Beyond The Sun was Set up by the Radu brothers, Phil (lead guitar), Dalton (drums) and Colin (vocals and rhythm guitar), they all discovered their musical abilities at a young age. They formed their first 4-piece band, ‘Hidden Echo’, in 2003 at the tender ages of 12, 9, and 7. With Phil on guitar, Dalton on drums, Colin on bass alongside their former lead vocalist, the band were the youngest act in history to play in the industry showcase at the Canadian Music Week in 2004 and were the youngest finalists ever of the 97.7 Htz FM Rock Search. They had already toured summer camps in New York and New Jersey, recorded CD’s and had numerous battle of the bands title’s under their belts by 2005.
The end of 2005 saw the band split ways with their lead vocalist and reform as the 3-piece ‘Beyond the Sun’ with Colin taking over lead vocals. They continued to write and by December 2009 they had released their music video for the single ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ and performed at the Air Canada Centre for the Toronto Rock Lacrosse half time show in February 2010. Through their talent and success, the band has developed many partnerships with big names in the industry such as Eric Bass of Shinedown and Boys like Girls producer Rick Beato.
So how have this band made such ground work with an enormous level of potential so young? “By working hard, educating ourselves...and a lot of dedication” Says drummer Dalton Radu. No kidding. As well as their plentiful accomplishment, Colin has been taking singing lessons since turning 9 and has recently been studying at the Ken Tamplin vocal academy in Los Angeles. Dalton has been studying with drum technician Danny Brown since 2005 and is also currently studying music production on the phenomenal Berklee College of Music’s online course programme. Also, Phil has been studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA as a song writing major since autumn 2010.
The band’s knowledge and professionalism definitely comes across in their latest EP and BEAT100 video, titled as the first single ‘My Kind of Crazy’. The harmonies of the single it’s self grab you by the ears, making the replay button irresistible. Their hard work reflects well on this record, with a mature sound beyond their years. With catchy hooks you can along to in the first play, universal lyrics and carefully crafted harmony and instrumental lines this band could go far and easily tour with their idols The Fray and Train.
So what’s next for the band? “This January, we’re going to be represented by Jan Cooper of Pump Records (Vancouver, Canada) at [the music industry conference] Midem in Cannes, France”. Using BEAT100 as their starting point, it looks like we’re in for a European takeover from the boys within the next year! Stay tuned.

Growing up in an environment where creativity, the Arts and humor were equally supported, they immersed themselves in many styles of music, from pop, rock and folk, to rap and hip hop at an early age and found limitless ways to make music from their toys and other objects they discovered in the world. After forming Beyond The Sun, the trio immediately garnered the attention of audiences throughout its home country and elsewhere. Along with maintaining an ambitious schedule of live shows, each member continues to fine-tune his proficiency at his instrument, with two members formally studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music..
“Colin Radu is an extraordinary up-and-coming singer/songwriter. With his band Beyond The Sun, Colin displays the soulful influences of singers, from Gavin DeGraw, to Ryan Tedder combined with the timelessness of Pat Monahan (Train). He and his band are a force to be reckoned with.” Ken Tamplin, The Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy, Los Angeles, CA
“I’ve known Phil Radu for a couple of years, having had him as a student at Berklee in a few different classes. He’s always done really well. Recently I had the chance to listen to some of his band’s latest release. I knew it would be good, but I was still floored by the songs, production, talent and focus. He and his brothers seem to follow a very simple formula: Write great songs; play and sing them really well. Beyond The Sun is a winner in my opinion!” Jon Finn, Professor, Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA
Beyond The Sun has performed at many venues across the GTA including The Reverb, The Opera House, Healey's, Edge 102 Studios and the Royal York Hotel. They have also played at various sports entertainment arenas including the Air Canada Centre, The Toronto Roadrunners Pre-Post game Festivities at the Ricoh Coliseum and seven seasons at the Rogers Centre with the Toronto Argonauts. The three have also played at notable festivals including Festival of the Islands, Burlington Sound of Music, CNE Rising Star and the Brantford and Oshawa Canada Day Festivals.

OSHAWA -- The members all have soup nicknames and, when you read the biographies on Oshawa band Stone Soup's website, it gets even crazier.
Multi-instrumentalist Martin Bonnie (Martin "Beef Barley" Soup), it states, was born in Area 51 and graduated from Roswell High School, class of '47. Huh? No doubt Stone Soup likes to have a good time. And they're organizing a big one for Aug. 11 at the Oshawa Armoury.

The band is hosting Bands For Brothers in Arms, a full day and night of music complete with a barbecue, door prizes and raffles. It's a benefit concert for Wounded Warriors, a non-profit group that helps Canadian Forces members who have been wounded or injured since 1990 while serving Canada.

As you might have guessed, it's a cause near and dear to the band.

"Our bass player, Mark, did a couple of tours in Afghanistan and works for the Wounded Warriors' fund," Bonnie says. "He's still an active member of the Ontario Regiment."

The Courtice resident joined Stone Soup about a year ago and notes the band (the other members live in Oshawa) doesn't play many paying gigs, preferring to play in aid of charities.

"We've all got regular jobs," he says. "We'd rather play for a good cause than for bucks."

The music starts at noon and ends around 1 a.m., divided into afternoon and evening shows. The line-up features a variety of music styles, including rock, folk rock, pop, r and b and soul. The performers include guitarist Joe Poirier, an Ajax native with several albums under his belt, Rock and Roll Cowboys, a duo with one member from Uxbridge, Whitby's Tamin' Thunder, a number of Oshawa bands, including Time Well Wasted and V.M. Blues, and bands from Oakville, Toronto and Barrie. Finishing up the day and night of music is Toronto's Easy Aces, billed as Toronto's biggest party band.

Bonnie said it didn't take any coaxing to get the bands on board for the event.

"For the most part they're friends and if not, they're friends of friends," he says. "Most of them responded pretty quick. I think we filled 10 or 11 spots in 48 hours."

"They're all playing for free. They're getting some food and some drinks and maybe some gas money, but that's it."

Prizes and volunteers are still being sought and if you can help out, e-mail Bonnie at martinbonnie@hotmail.com or call him at 905-448-0323.

Tickets are $15 for an all-day pass or $10 for a half-day pass (noon to 6 p.m. or 6 p.m. to close).

For tickets, call or e-mail Bonnie or bandsforbrothersinarms@gmail.com. You can also get tickets at the event website, bandsforbrothersinarms.org.

"If it's a success this year, we plan on doing it again next year," Bonnie says.

The three oldest boys met in February 2002 at a music school in Oshawa. After a year of work- ing together, O’Meara, Phil and Dalton decided to branch out and develop their musical talent.

"Junior rockers Hidden Echo"

Junior rockers Hidden Echo at Raxx Saturday
plugged in

MIKE BEGGS

Returning to Raxx tomorrow night to open for Jack, the Clarington band Hidden Echo is on a bit of a roll.

They've won two Battle of the Bands contests in the past year and just last night they played a featured gig at Toronto's Reverb Tavern, during the vaunted Canadian Music Week (CMW) festival.

Not bad for a band whose eldest members are 12.

What's more, that latter appearance made them the youngest band ever to play CMW.

"Oh, it's amazing. We're so blown away," said lead guitarist Phillip Radu, 12. He's joined by his brothers Dalton, 9, on drums and Colin, 7, on bass, plus good friend Taylor O'Meara, 12, on lead vocals and guitar.

In turn, a lot of music fans-- and older bands-- are being blown away.

Last fall, they claimed the Supernova.com Battle of the Bands competition at Toronto's Opera House in front of 900 people.

"We love (playing live)," Phillip said. "When the crowd gives off so much energy, you want to give it back to them."

Reflecting influences like Nickelback, and Creed, their three-song demo CD proves these guys are proficient on their instruments, not just some kind of boy band.

They came together in February of 2002, when Taylor and Phillip struck up a friendship while studying at the same Oshawa music school.

By May 2003, the band was fully assembled and ready to gig.

Ironically, none of their parents are musical.

The group gives full credit to their "band teacher" Mark Kitchen, who still gives each member lessons at the Radu household, and also fine-tunes their recordings, as producer.

"It's loud here," said mom, Lisa Radu, "They practise every day."

Rock stardom may have to wait. But it's definitely fun for them.

"We hope (Canadian Music Week) goes fine, and then go as far as we can," Phillip said. "We hope we can get signed and do a full CD."

They will play a 30 minute set of 7 songs, including three covers-- Led Zeppelin's Rock 'n Roll, AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long and Nickelback's Some Day.

Hidden Echo hits stage at 9:45 p.m. at Raxx Bar and Grill, 370 Main St. N.

The final band will be added this weekend. Competing for the last spot will be Back Against The Wall, Green Division, Mercy Heights, One Cross, The Difference and To Have Control.

In the finals, the bands will compete for the title of champion and perform for music industry representatives and booking agents. The final showcase will feature emcee Farley Flex, from 'Canadian Idol,' and will be taped for broadcast on Rogers Television.

The Bandwarz 2004 champion will receive $1,000 in cash, a prize package from Alcatraz Skates, recording time at Mad Hermit Studios to complete a three-song demo package produced by Wellcraft Music and will be part of a showcase at North By Northeast Music Festival and Conference (NXNE) and appear on the Bandwarz 2004 show broadcast on Rogers Television.

The weekly all-ages concerts are held at Le Skratch, 200 John St. W. in the Midtown Mall and start at 5:30 p.m., with a final band taking the stage at 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost $8 in advance, available at Alcatraz Skates, and $10 at the door on the day of the show. Doors open at 4:30 p.m.

DURHAM -- Four young Clarington residents are spending part of their summer at camp this month.

But Taylor O'Meara, 13, and the Radu brothers, Phil, 13, Colin, 9 this month, and Dalton, 11, aren't campers, they are entertaining at six summer camps for young people, ages five to 16, in New York and New Jersey. The members of Hidden Echo, believed to be Canada's youngest rock band, are taking part in Camplified Summer Tour 2005, which provides summer camp entertainment for kids.

And when they come back, they will open for Canadian Idol season two winner Kalan Porter at a festival in Gananoque. After that, school starts and the band will be releasing its third CD, with four or five new songs, later this fall. They'll play at the Toronto Argos tailgate party Oct. 10.

It's been a busy two years since Hidden Echo was formed in 2003, one year after meeting at a music school in Oshawa. The boys have released two CDs, played countless gigs throughout southern Ontario, won four Battle of the Bands competitions, kept writing their own songs and kept up their school work. They play original works and cover songs.

"It's awesome," said Phillip, going into Grade 9 at Clarington Central Secondary School in Bowmanville. "We have a lot of fun."

He is lead guitar and backing vocals.

"It's amazing," agreed Taylor, 13, going into Grade 9 at Holy Trinity Secondary School in Courtice. "Being able to do it all at such a young age is great."

Taylor plays guitar and does vocals.

Dalton, who is entering Grade 6 at Dr. Ross Tilley Public School, in Bowmanville, said he's enjoying the band but knows there is something more important.

"School work comes first," he said. "We come home, do our homework and then it's time for the band."

Dalton plays drums, with private lessons from Pat Carrano.

The youngest member, Colin, will be in Grade 4 this year at Dr. Tilley school. Six years old when the band started, he plays bass.

"It's cool," he said of Hidden Echo's success.

Hidden Echo's 2 current CDs are available at CD Plus in the Oshawa Centre or online at www.hiddenecho.com.

“Proving themselves time and time again, Beyond the Sun has built a reputation as an explosive presence to be reckoned with, gaining
them a loyal following at Toronto Argonauts home games. The group has created their own sound by merging the rock with the pop, and in the end melded all of their influences into the radio-friendly alt-rock sound they possess today.
Beyond the Sun has become a welcome addition to our game day events.”

“Pollution Probe invited Beyond the Sun to perform at our annual Gala dinner themed “Talkin’ ‘Bout My Generation – The Energy Ball” at
the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in 2005. We wanted to emphasize the classic ‘Who’ song that was well
known by our senior government & corporate guests and at the same time pass the clean energy
torch to the next Generation, represented by Beyond the Sun. It was a tremendous success–the kids were a surprise and they “wowed”
everyone. I highly recommend the band.”

"Under-agers rock the Reverb"

Under-agers rock the Reverb

Youngsters from Clarington, Ont.,
plays Music Week with groups twice their age


By Sarah Rogers

"Are you ready for some rock n’ roll?” shouts Phil Radu, leading his band Hidden Echo into a Led Zeppelin cover at the Reverb.

Sure, the band is one of thousands to have rocked the stage at theToronto nightclub, but none of the members of this four-piece outfit from Clarington, Ont. are even old enough to be here. Taylor O’Meara, 12, and the Radu brothers Phil, 12, Dalton, 9, and Colin, 7 make up the one of the youngest bands ever assembled. Hidden Echo played a show March 5 as part of Canadian Music week, a three-day festival showcasing independent music around the city.

The performance produced all the energy of a good rock n’ roll show with heavy guitar riffs and an enthusiastic crowd. Hidden Echo’s most obvious fan, the Radu’s grandmother Dianne Boivin, danced until the end of the band’s half-hour set.

“I don’t miss any of their shows,” Boivin confessed. “I’m very proud of them.”

Hidden Echo just finished recording its first demo of original songs in a Toronto studio. Members say their sound is influenced by groups like Creed and Nickelback. The band has played and won several competitions, and doesn’t seem fazed about playing against musicians twice their age.

“We’ve done it before so we’re getting used to it now,” said Taylor, the lead vocalist. “I think it’s fun, and you can get ideas from other bands.”

Practice makes perfect
Surprisingly, none of the boys came from musical families. Lisa Radu says her boys are incredibly talented and self-driven. Hidden Echo practices every day of the week in the Radus’ basement, and still finds time for homework and Playstation.

“We have seven gigs coming up in March, so we really have to work hard,” Phil said.

Taylor and Phil met at a music school they both attended in Oshawa. With help from one of their music teachers, they joined forces with the other Radu brothers in 2002 to form Hidden Echo and create a sound they describe as “awesome.”

Becoming role models
The band seems to take its growing success in stride, but enjoys the attention it receives from fans. The boys are beginning to see themselves as role models for other aspiring young musicians.

“A couple of kids have told us they take guitar lessons because of us,” Phil said, “and that’s cool.”

Taylor says that the band is popular with girls wherever they play, but seven-year-old Colin is the only band member to admit having a girlfriend.

“He just broke up with one, but he has one more left,” Taylor said.

Bio

Canadian bred band Beyond the Sun smashes into 2018 with their latest release STOP, an in-your-face pop track that tackles an experience that is familiar for those struggling with reality verses virtual friendships. “STOP" is a musical wake up call to all the fake people in your life,” says lead vocalist Colin Radu. “We were at this point in our lives that, for whatever reason, we were reconnecting with people we have nothing in common with anymore and forcing friendships. Just because you're still ‘connected’ on Facebook or Instagram doesn't mean you care about each other anymore.”

 

Following the success of one-word hits like Ed Sheeran’s Don’t and Maroon 5’s Wait, STOP is sure to parlay the international success of this trio of brothers who, despite their young age, have already clocked more than a decade of performances together. The genesis of their genre erasing sound can be traced back to their childhood staging shows with plastic guitars for their parents at the ages of 6, 8 and 11. Little did they know at the time that just over a decade later they would be hearing themselves on Sirius XM radio and performing for a 7,000 person sold-out crowd at Puerto Rico’s Wild Summer Festival. 

 

Made up of three tight-knit brothers, the group of singer Colin, guitarist Phil and drummer Dalton Radu grew up just outside Toronto, Ontario. With traces of their influences like Ed Sheeran and Bleachers threaded into each one of their songs, their audience appeal reaches far beyond one specific genre. Think danceable pop beats meet small-town songwriting. Coldplay meets Florida Georgia Line or LANY mixed with Ryan Follese. Couple their music with room-filling rock attitudes and an on-stage chemistry that comes only from growing up under the same roof, and you get Beyond the Sun.

 

“We grew up in the era of the iPod where on any given day you could find me listening to One Republic sandwiched between Billy Currington and The 1975,” says Dalton, the middle brother. And that’s exactly how the group likes to think of their sound - Shuffle; a progressive mélange that includes traceable elements of pop, EDM, alternative and country.  

 

However, it took years of work and collaboration for the group to get to where they are sonically. It started with AC/DC songs at battle of the bands competitions in elementary school, which earned them the title of the youngest band to ever play Canadian Music Week. Then came the teenage years, which consisted of touring Canada in their grandpa’s truck and lots of growth. “Both physically and musically,” they laugh.

 

Phil honed his songwriting craft and was accepted to his dream school, Berklee College of Music in Boston, while Dalton became the group’s production expert and Colin emerged as the lead vocalist. Lyrics emailed back and forthand countless days in the studio when Phil was home forholidays led to the group’s debut projects, two EPs: My Kind of Crazy and Little Kingdom. Their debut single and music video, “My Kind of Crazy,” garnered over 150,000 views on YouTube, reached no. 12 on Sirius XM’s 20 on 20and even cracked the top 100 on the Media Base chart in 2013. Next, the band embarked on an international tourwhich included stops at Hard Rock Cafés all over the U.S., the Air Canada Center and a sold out show at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico. Halting only for a brief period to build more material for projects.  Beyond the Sun has emerged as a “must watch” act on the world music scene even garnering profiles on Ryan Seacrest’s AXS network and multiple appearances on the nationally syndicated Cumulus morning show Ty, Kelly & Chuck.  STOP what you are doing and check out the latest releases on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc. and follow their burgeoning social media profiles.
