“Colin Radu is an extraordinary up-and-coming singer/songwriter. With his band Beyond The Sun, Colin displays the soulful influences of singers, from Gavin DeGraw, to Ryan Tedder combined with the timelessness of Pat Monahan (Train). He and his band are a force to be reckoned with.”
Ken Tamplin, The Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy, Los Angeles, CA
“I’ve known Phil Radu for a couple of years, having had him as a student at Berklee in a few different classes. He’s always done really well. Recently I had the chance to listen to some of his band’s latest release. I knew it would be good, but I was still floored by the songs, production, talent and focus. He and his brothers seem to follow a very simple formula: Write great songs; play and sing them really well. Beyond The Sun is a winner in my opinion!”
Jon Finn, Professor, Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA
The fresh, energetic and heartfelt music of Beyond The Sun celebrates the Canadian band’s belief that lyrics and melodies can tell an on-going, universal story and help human beings connect powerfully through their many diverse experiences. Through catchy yet personal tunes that sparkle with infinite layers of harmony, guitarist Phil, lead vocalist Colin and drummer Dalton unleash tunes that resonate personally with their audiences. Growing up in an environment where creativity, the Arts and humor were equally supported, they immersed themselves in many styles of music, from pop, rock and folk, to rap and hip hop at an early age and found limitless ways to make music from their toys and other objects they discovered in the world. After forming Beyond The Sun, the trio immediately garnered the attention of audiences throughout its home country and elsewhere. Along with maintaining an ambitious schedule of live shows, each member continues to fine-tune his proficiency at his instrument, with two members formally studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
Beyond The Sun has performed at many venues across the GTA including The Reverb, The Opera House, Healey's, Edge 102 Studios and the Royal York Hotel. They have also played at various sports entertainment arenas including the Air Canada Centre, The Toronto Roadrunners Pre-Post game Festivities at the Ricoh Coliseum and seven seasons at the Rogers Centre with the Toronto Argonauts. The three have also played at notable festivals including Festival of the Islands, Burlington Sound of Music, CNE Rising Star and the Brantford and Oshawa Canada Day Festivals.
