Bio

Dome Sunset is, without a hint of exaggeration the kind of dynamic duo we haven’t witnessed since the likes of Batman and Robin. Made up of an emcee and a guitarist that have known each other since their high school days, Dome Sunset is the uncanny conception of two good mates trying to create something that breaks free from their respective genres of hip hop and alternative music, to do something that isn’t bound by genre, only their own limitations.

Hailing from the city of isolation some may suspect that it’s getting to the heads of some of the upcoming artists, but don’t be fooled by first impressions as both members have been consistently honing their craft over the past few years, making a name for themselves in the local scene.

Mc Marksman at 21, has already had his fair share of action earning his stripes on the Scribble Jam battle circuit, taking out the WA heats in 06 and also making waves as a spoken word artist, winning the national poetry slam heats in WA and taking the runner-up spot at the finals at the opera house in late 08. As a lyricist he says he is inspired by the everyday struggle that comes out in his story driven, socially engaging rhymes that range from politically charged commentary to issues that hit closer to home like on the track “Big Girls” that deals with female anorexia.

Chris Winterburn makes up the other 50% of the group and handles the instrumentation and arrangements. As lead guitarist of local Perth band Crysis he is no stranger to the stage and has performed along side the likes of Cog, Karnivool and The Butterfly Effect, riding the success of his 2007 released EP “The Sirens”. At only 22 he is already capable of epitomizing the definition of a one-man band, which Dome Sunset say is perfect for up and comers who only have to split the rider two ways.

With the release of their debut EP “joy” coming soon, we can expect to hear big things from Dome Sunset in the not too distant future. Be sure to keep an ear out for the noise these boys are bound to make.
