SOMETHING UNTO NOTHING (S.U.N.), the band featuring the whiskey-soaked voice of Sass Jordan, a Canadian icon and Juno Award winner, alongside music partner, renowned drummer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Brian Tichy, known for his tours of duty with BILLY IDOL, FOREIGNER, OZZY OSBOURNE and currently WHITESNAKE, has inked a deal with Robo Records (a division of Waterfront Ent. Group). S.U.N.‘s first single, “I’m The One”, is impacting radio throughout October, with the full CD release due later in the fall.
Previously working together is what brought Jordan and Tichy together in collaboration of the new music. “I had played drums on Sass‘s ‘Rats’ record,” explains Tichy. “I knew she was one of the best rock singers going. So after many years, we reconnected and tried a bit of writing together.” Both felt that in order to write the best, trend-free music they could, they needed to get away. They chose the mountains of Canyon Country and in an old, deserted shack S.U.N. was born. “We didn’t realize where we going when we started out,” says Jordan. “As we continued the songwriting path from ‘Burned’ to ‘Mobile Again’ to ‘Nomad’ and on … The whole thing started to take shape in the form of a ’70s odyssey, a time travel trajectory.”
Completing the band that drives this music home is Michael Devin (WHITESNAKE, JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE, KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD) on bass and Tommy Stewart (GODSMACK, LO PRO, EVERCLEAR, FUEL) on drums.
“We are completely thrilled and ready to rock,” says Rob Christie, president of Robo Records. “Sass Jordan is one of the great rock vocalists around, and a heck of a songwriter to boot! Brian Tichy and gang are seasoned pros, capable of complete face-melting rock grooves and hooks. I’m so excited to share this new album with the world.”
