River of Suns: Interview with BrooklynRocks (Alt-Rock/Hip-Hop)

River of Suns: Interview with BrooklynRocksRiver of Suns are a fairly new roots-rock/hip-hop band out of Los Angeles. An early lineup of the band recorded their debut CD, Scattered Atoms, in 2007. The core lineup of Padric Payton (Lead Vocals, Guitars) and Asa Anderson (Guitar, Bass, Keys) have now expanded to a four-piece with the addition of Brando Farr (Emcee, Vocals, Harmonica, Percussion) and Rich Thomas (Bass) and the band has started working on their second disc.

I had the chance to catch up with Padric, Asa and Brando a few weeks back. We talked a bit about the band's music, how its has evolved into a mix of soulful roots-rock and funk/hip-hop and the inspiration behind their fusion of sounds.
