10 Connecticut Bands You Should Listen To Now
100 Watt Suns
Hometown: North Stonington
Current Album: Steve Broderick & The 100 Watt Suns EP (2013)
Back in 2011, Steve Broderick shelved the solo album he was working on and decided to form the 100 Watt Suns instead. Each of the members of the band have a long history in the music industry, creating soulful, Americana-tinged bar-rock with clever lyrics like, “I don’t blame you for trying…but you can’t hind your crazy for that long.” During 2012, the band focused on performing locally and around the New England region, and in 2013 they released their first record, a five-song EP. The 100 Watt Suns will be performing mainly in Connecticut and Rhode Island this spring and summer.
