Cosmos Sunshine & Righteous Continental will be doling out multiple sets of bluesy original rock n roll for your earholes.

At the age of fourteen, seeking a deeper and more expressive creative outlet, Cosmos Sunshine began playing guitar. By fifteen, he was writing his own material and playing professionally; performing in as many bars, clubs & high school auditoriums near his rural Connecticut home, as would have him.

After a brief stint at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Cosmos moved to New York City and began his tenure as lead guitarist, songwriter and bandleader for the 1990’s juggernauts, Cherokee Sex Workshop and Walkinbird. The latter’s eponymous debut album was produced by the legendary Warren Haynes, who became a mentor to Cosmos, teaching him the ways of songwriting, studio production and guitar wizardry.

In total, he has amassed a discography of four full length albums and four EPs and has played some of the best venues in New York City (Brooklyn Bowl, Irving Plaza, Joe’s Pub, CBGB, (le) Poisson Rouge, The Wetlands Preserve, The Nightingale Bar) and toured nationally (opening for such greats as Gov’t Mule, Blues Traveler, The Spin Doctors, Johnny Winter, Lenny Kravitz and many, many more).
