Goldensuns is a Los Angeles-based band founded by three brothers: Chase (bass/lead singer), Jantzen (guitar/vocals) and Weston Meier (drums/vocals). While coming of age in Salt Lake City, Utah, Goldensuns wrote, produced, engineered and released their 2011 debut EP, Wine Country, under the name Golden Sun. This DIY method that they employed on Wine Country became the formula that the band would employ with all of their ensuing recordings.
Still in their teens, the band started booking shows as they continued to write and record new material. In 2013, the eponymous Golden Sun EP was released, leading the band to experience their first taste of success. The EP debuted as Bandcamp's number one overall seller, and this momentum continued as the single "Kings Cup" was sampled in Bass King Vs. X-Vertigo's "Kings," which is licensed under Tiesto's Musical Freedom imprint. Tiesto himself has used the song in many of his live sets.
Golden Sun EP led to a 2013 US tour in which the band regularly played 1,000-1,500 cap venues. The EP's success is still being felt , as "Kings Cup" gained further renown with a feature in a May 6, 2015 episode of CSI Cyber. As of today, Golden Sun EP has been streamed over 200,000 times in addition to its 6,000 plus copies sold.
The success of Golden Sun EP led the brothers to move to Los Angeles, where they currently reside. Goldensuns is currently recording their next project, which has already seen commercial success with the feature of "I Feel This Place" in a Billabong Spring 2015 campaign. In addition, The Wild Honey Pie recently filmed a live performance of "Give It Up" and "Gold Chains", two upcoming singles. Goldensuns' new project has an expected release date of late 2017, which the band looks forward to supporting with their largest tour yet.
