About

Born from the fusing of eight Winnipeg, MB based musicians. Apollo Suns have created a refreshing and innovative sound and live performance combining jazz, funk, rock and psychedelic music. They are "Instrumental Artists of the Year" nominees at the 2018 at the Western Canadian Music Awards.

Apollo Suns began in 2016 following of Ed Durochers (guitar) and Dave Guenettes (bass) previous band Electric Soul. Conciously heading in a new sonic direction the band quickly picked up Ethan (drums) and Anatol (Keyboards), Phil (trumpet), Erika (percussion), Anna (bari sax), Anthony (trombone) and Aaron (alto sax) to accompany and form the core of the band.

Their debut EP, Each Day a Different Sun, was released in April of 2017 followed by a Western Canadian tour in support of the release. They have since been through Western Canadian twice. The album spent seven weeks on Earshot! National TOP 50 charts with it's top position at #15.

Apollo Suns are in the midst of recording the follow up to Each Day a Different Sun with a release date aimed at the spring of 2019. The remainder of this year will see the band on the a cross Canada coast to coast tour anchored on national festivals Ness Creek Music Festival and Golden Sound Music Festival as they begin groundwork for a new release that will include their first US dates as they have recently teamed up with US booking agent John Lares of Cielo Agency in California.

Some of their more notable shows have included support slots for The Brooks, Mariachi Ghost, Five Alarm Funk, Bend Sinister and Mahogany Frog. as well as showcases at Canadian Music Week, Festival Du Voyageur and Winnipeg Fringe Festival.

Apollo Suns are an exciting band out of Winnipeg who are not afraid to walk a fine line and pave their own musical way into the hearts of music fans all across Canada and soon internationally.
