Formation

Formed in 2011 after Grant (guitarist) and his cousin Brett (Drummer) we're sick of playing in wedding bands. They got together bassist from previous band and worked instrumentally for 6 months as a resident band at The Hen House rehearsal studios, before bumping into the vocalist and long time friend, who was done with cover bands and wanted to write originals. The band later evolved to include a second guitar/ keyboard element from another fellow friend and musician. Thus the forming of September Sun
