Sundaug is the pseudonym for Philadelphia-based composer and performer Steve Bonitatibus.. Steve became interested in percussive fingerstyle guitar early on in his playing days and even studied guitar performance during his undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia. While his first two albums — Empyrean Fantasy (2013) and Nocturnality (2015) — featured music that could be likened to contemporary guitarists such as Andy McKee and Kaki King, his latest effort marks a shift towards post-rock.
"To Bloom, To Wither" is Sundaug's third, full-length album. Unlike his previous two works, which featured primarily solo acoustic numbers, this album embraces a heavier, post-rock sound. Using a wide array of eclectic instrumental textures, To Bloom, To Wither attempts to blend the soothing timbres of modern acoustica with the more blaring sounds of rock music. The album was officially released on February 24th, 2017, and is available in music stores and across streaming platforms.

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
