Sun Sessions

What are your band member’s names?
Mauricio Enriquez (Guitar/Vocals)
Miguel Morales (Guitar)
Robert Vazquez (Bass)
Diego Arca (Drums)

How and when did the band start?
Miguel and I (Mauricio) were in a band before Sun Sessions. When our old band started drifting apart we kept getting together to work on songs. We realized we needed some more people to flesh out the songs and I invited Robert to join us and play bass with us. He had a friend that played the drums so we invited him over to listen to some songs. He played the drums, we dug what he was playing and we asked him to join the band.

Where are you located?
We’re currently based out of Fontana, CA.

What genre would you place your music in?
I guess if we had to narrow it down we’d be considered Indie rock. We don’t set out to make songs in any one genre we just make music that we like.

What are your musical and non-musical influences?
I think we all have pretty different musical influences. We all have some shared influences like The Strokes, Nirvana, Interpol, and Foals but then we all have other influences that are more specific to each member. Some of us like other stuff like Metal, Electronic, Hip Hop and things like that.
As far as non-musical influences go I think just about anything serves as an influence. Things that go from the people you meet, to films, to just about anything.

What are your dreams and goals?
We would like to get to a point where we can make music for a living. Spending all our time writing music for everyone to listen to and enjoy. We want to be able to take these songs to people in different countries and have them enjoy what we are making. Seeing people connect with the music and giving them an outlet to relax and get away from the day to day norm.

Who writes the songs and what topics do you like to touch on?
All four of us contribute to the songwriting process. That can range from the music to the lyrics to the overall feel and sound of the song. A song can start from a bass line, a drumbeat, or a chord progression then we all collaborate and shape the song in a way that we all like.
We write about relationships, ambitions, frustrations, and anything else that someone is experiencing at the moment. Sometimes we title our songs before they have lyrics and we use those names and write about the situations that pertain to those titles.

What inspires you to make music?
Music is everything. It drives us to places that nothing else can. Having the ability to do that for others is what inspires us to make music.

What do you want your fans or potential fans to know about you?
We want them to know that we make music because it’s what we love to do and we hope that they enjoy the music we make as much as we do.

Do you have any upcoming events?
Not at the moment but we’re working towards getting to that point.

Where can fans buy your music/merch?
We don’t have merch available at the moment.
As for our music we have our new EP, Errors available as a free download at our bandcamp:
