Artist bio

Developing their piano-driven electro-rock sound into what it is today, SUDDYN stemmed from humble beginnings in New York, broadening into an internationally-comprised mix. Formed by brothers Alan (vocals, piano, synths) and Jarrett (guitar, vocals, bass) Steil, the band honed its music while touring through Ireland, completing their electrifying trio with the addition of Irishman Brendan Connolly (drums, vocals). Using their allure to crack the Irish music scene, the group returned to New York with 3 Top 30 hits, a devoted following, and a string of equally impressive hangovers. Blessed with panty-dropping good looks, they bring energy and presence to their shows unmatched since Genghis Khan conquered Mongolia. Incorporating a savvy knowledge of production values, SUDDYN followed their debut EP Dark Lights, with Before the City, produced by Grammy Award-winner David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Sublime). In 2011, trading winter jackets and pasty skin for sunglasses and tans (not so much in Brendans case, though he does wear sunglasses), SUDDYN brought the show to the West Coast. Playing an intensive schedule in LA-area bars and clubs, they garnered heavy attention from KROQ and signed a placement deal with MTV Networks to be featured in upcoming broadcasts. Continuing with their budding success, the band will soon be taking the stage at The Indie Music Festival in Las Vegas and the Music To Know festival in New York with the likes of Vampire Weekend; Matt and Kim; We Are Scientists; and Bright Eyes.
