BandRock

Sundown's sound is best described as, straight to the point rock and roll that combines the influences of todays modern rock while carefully balancing their sound on the fundamental axis of classic rock n' roll.

Biography

Sundown was formed in the Spring of 2008 when two separate groups of musicians joined forces. What began as an informal performance in front of their peers, resulted in the formation of a group of young musicians with a common passion and goal.

From that first performance, it was evident that this group of musicians had that something special. As time passed during those early years, Sundown dove head first into performing and perfecting their sound. Not satisfied with being labelled "that high school band", Sundown set their sights on being the best "rock band" they could be.

Song by song, and show by show, Sundown worked at becoming tighter, and more knowledgeable in the art of performing. Their hard work has been paying off. They have won many competitions and awards. Some include; Winners of the Genz Benz Summer Warfare Concert Series, First place at Long and Mcquades Guitar Wars, Top 10 in Indiscover Summer Concert Series, Top 5 in Indiscover Record Label Star Search, Sound Academy Best of the Best Concert Series, and many more.

The music of Sundown has evolved over the past few years. When they started, their sound was very heavily influenced by the classic rock artists of the past. They developed and released their very first album of all original songs in May 2010 entitled, "My Own Path." Included on this CD is the ImageFM Rock Single of the Year, "Behind Closed Doors".

What separates Sundown apart from other bands in the "rock" genre is that the boys, Shane Preston, lead singer, Vince Sasso, electric and acoustic guitar, Chris Savage, Drums and backup vocals, Nick Savage, electric and acoustic guitar and Tyler Tsang, bass guitar, although young are very talented, professional, and incredibly dedicated. When it is crunch time, the boys become men and do what they have to do, while having as much fun as they can.

Building on the success of their first album, Sundown is currently writing and performing new material for their soon to be released second album. Their electric stage presence combined with their polished sound makes a Sundown performance one you will not want to miss.

Lyrics

Memory (Hold On)

Written By: Vince Sasso, Shane Preston, Nick Savage, Chris Savage, Tyler Tsang

Verse 1:
Memory,
On my mind tonight.
Was it a dream?
Is everything alright?

Lost in a place,
I've been here before.
I see with closed eyes,
Then I see no more.

Promise me,
You'll remember what you said.
I only hope,
You don't fade away.

Chorus:
So hold on,
To the memory.
When your feeling trapped,
Come escape with me.

Verse 2:
I lie awake,
There's a storm tonight.
I see your face,
When I close my eyes.

So shelter me,
From the world outside.
In memory,
I can safely hide.

Chorus:
So hold on,
To the memory.
When you're feeling trapped,
Come escape with me.

Hold on,
Memory. X2

Verse 3:
Memory,
On my mind tonight.
Like the sweetest dream,
Everything's alright.

I promise you,
I'll remember what you say.
I can see,
You'll never fade away.

You'll never fade away.
