“Great band with a great sound and with great people!”
“Sunrise16 – international soul & pop music with powerful & smooth voices – thumbs up!”
“One of the best bands in Austria <3”
“This is the best band ever!!! 😎 Great album with great voices!”
“Coole Band und immer sehr publikumsnahe bei live Konzerten, findet man selten!”
(Cool band and always very close to the audience at live concerts, hard to find!)
In 2013 Harald Fahrngruber, music producer and drummer, found the recipe for good pop music: throw a mix of styles, influences and different cities into a melting pot and stir well! He started the project Sunrise16 by gathering musicians from very different genres and together they worked on a few songs. One of these songs, Don’t Waste My Time, ended up in hot rotation on the biggest Austrian radio station. It was a fantastic summer hit, and spent 4 consecutive months in the Top 10 charts. Since then it is just impossible to think of the Austrian music scene without Sunrise16!
After experimenting a bit, the band defined its final line-up: combining the powerful voice of Nadine Beiler (ESC and Starmania), the unique flow of Californian rapper Jay Dunman and the smooth voice of Sara Koell (Voice of Germany) backed by infectious beats by Kaiser Base (SEEED, Freundeskreis, etc.) and Paul Blaze (Sido & Nazar).
(But be prepared: Sunrise16 raises the claim to pop-up in a different constellation anytime!)
SUNRISE16 has played some of Austria‘s most famous and biggest music festivals including the Donauinselfest and Linz Kronefest. They will be touring in Europe this fall to promote their brand new first full-length album Day One.
Sunrise16 is currently shooting their next music video for I Choose Love, sung by Sara Koell aka Sara D Blue and Jason Dunman.
If you want to see Sunrise16 live, your next chance will be in a couple of days, on Nov. 13 at Chaya Fuera, Vienna, for the release party of their first album Day One. A big delegation of Global Rockstar employees will be cheering them on in the crowd. On Dec. 3 you can listen to Sunrise16 at Shopping Music Nights at SCS, Vösendorf.
