John Sully, a performance and sound artist from New York City met
Kazakhstanian drummer/pianist Ruslan Baimurzin at an East Village after hours jam. Their chemistry was instantaneous. Ruslan invited Sully to jam on guitar with bassist Igor Reznik and Keyboardist Peter Breed and Sons Of Venus was born. With Sully's organic style of production he was able to capture high quality multi channel recordings of the band's extensive improvisations. By arranging the tracks through digital editing he created tight and cohesive demos on which he overdubbed vocals. Excited with the outcome, the band decided to record seven of the tracks at Bunker studios in Brooklyn. Recorded live in a day and mixed by Sully in his home studio, their debut album is simply titled Sons Of Venus. There is an innate 1960's feeling to the album. Free jazz flourishes and acid rock edges intertwine with an indie pop ethos. Taking their cues from punk, funk and the blues, the band appreciates as it innovates.
