Kae Sun

Afro - Folk - Reggae - Soul - Urban
From Toronto, Ontario

BIO

Kae Sun is of the generation of performers who seem equally at home anywhere in the world, whose music reflects their multi-layered personal histories. Born in Ghana, he grew up listening Soul, Folk, Reggae, Afro Beat and Hip Life.

An Ontario resident since 2001, his music is equal parts soul, folk, and reggae – a sound sometimes described as urban folk . His debut EP Ghost Town Prophecy was so well received it gave Kae Sun the freedom to self-produce most of the songs on his follow-up CD, Lion On A Leash. Released in 2009, it made many critics’ lists of top indie releases of the year.

The songs are socially conscious without being preachy. The singer is talented and charismatic. The band is tight and high-energy. The show is not to be missed. Kae Sun’s new live acoustic EP is entitled “Outside The Barcode”.
