Party of the Sun is an indie folk band from New Hampshire, led by songwriter Ethan McBrien and producer/multi-instrumentalist Rory Hurley.
Since 2006, both McBrien and Hurley have recorded and performed together with funk/rock fusion outfit The Youngest Sun. Throughout his career, McBrien has had an interest in folk music; writing many songs influence by the American tradition.
In the fall of 2015, McBrien and Hurley began recording this material. These collaborative sessions at McBrien’s home – a small sheep farm in Marlborough, NH – were the impetus of what would later become Party of the Sun.
The first recordings from Party of the Sun surfaced in summer of 2017 via LA-based independent label Trailing Twelve Records.
