Bad Suns is a band whose music is timeless. We spoke with Christo Bowman (lead singer and guitarist) about his experience breaking into the music industry while staying true to the roots of their sound. The layering and production on their tracks definitely create an immersive experience for the listener, which represents the care placed on each track produced.
Christo mentioned how he became interested in learning how to play the guitar because of the movie School of Rock, which was actually filmed at Wagner College! He said “that was the first movie I saw where I realized that…you don’t have to be an adult. So that was why I started playing the guitar so young.”
The true artist helps the world be revealing mystic truth.
While writing lyrics and music for what would become Mystic Truth, the band got together and began collaborating to produce the album. They set up in their living room, since they were living together at the time, to focus on creating a final product that represented each of them. When the four members of Bad Suns get together to write their next album something amazing happens. Christo said, “something just kind of happens and we are all on the same wave-length.”
When asked what his favorite lyric that he has ever written was Christo replied with “my favorite lyrics are the ones that just hit me, that I completely understand. They’re what I’ve been thinking but I haven’t heard anyone else say.”
In 2020, Bad Suns hopes to keep up the same momentum they had while writing Mystic Truth. Their music has definitely inspired me and I know the staff and I cannot wait to hear what they do next!
