Album Notes
Make a right on Sunrise Highway and just keep going as you are immersed in a timeless pop sound that will put a big smile on your face. A fine collection of songs inspired by 60’s AM radio & 70’s FM with influences like, The Beach Boys, Beatles, Todd Rundgren, Laura Nyro, Bacharach, Carole King, Lovin Spoonful, Mamas & Papas, Byrds, Cyrkle, Steely Dan and many others creates a wondrous sound that will always be fresh and uplifting! Before Sunrise Highway the band was called NEO. Every review compared the music to that of the Wondermints. The CD reminded others of Jellyfish. One reviewer said the vocals reminded him of Carl Wilson and the vocalist from Teenage Fanclub. Splendid songs, great musicianship, sublime vocals drenched in golden sunshine pop harmonies, now there’s a road that never ends!



to write a review


On this site, we make a big deal about groups that follow the classic power pop influences, like The Beach Boys, Beatles, Todd Rundgren, The Byrds, etc. However it’s not enough to just have an influence, or be a sound-alike… it’s what you make of it. I am happy to say Marc Silvert has created a great album that honors these past greats with excellent songwriting and brilliant musicianship. He also gets support from a stellar band, including Gary Feldman of Radio City. Opening with “Life On Mars” it has a classic Rundgrenesque storyline and rich arrangement that carries the melodies along, it’s an instant classic. And it’s followed by one of the best Beach songs ever with “Endless Summer” full of soaring harmonies and jangling chords. Lead vocalist Greg Schlotthauer does an excellent job with Silvert, singing in tandem. The Beach Boys cadence continues on several songs here including “Baby Be Good” and “Roundabout.” The style varies enough on songs like “Big Brown Eyes” and “Magic” with it’s shimmering Rickenbacker chords to keep things from getting predictable. Almost every song has a great hook and pop structure similar to those 60’s/70’s adult radio favorites. If you have been looking for an album to lift your spirits with sunshine, then look no further. For fans of Jeff Larson, Jamie Hoover, Richard Snow and Nelson Bragg this truly is manna from heaven, and my first top ten recommendation for 2010. Go to POWERPOPAHOLIC

2. Sunrise Highway Instant classic. Seamless collection of sunset (not sunrise, as the title suggests) dreamy surf-tinged pop that effortlessly evokes the world as it might appear in a Thomas Kinkade painting with swooningly gorgeous stacked harmonies. Yes Brian Wilson is a cornerstone but there’s so much more going on here, and in songs like “Magic” and “Roundabout,” Sunshine Highway establishes their own sound firmly. Instrumentally challenging—note guitarist Marc Silvert’s bent note solo on “Endless Summer.” Silvert wrote most of this material which makes him a major American songwriter in my book.

the warmth of the sun
All of the great 60's and 70's acts whose great power pop sounds resonate in my soul are present here. Beach Boys, check. Big Star, check. Todd, check. I am a pop-psych nut and I love this stuff. The arrangements, songwriting and performance come together with some awesome, infectious tunes. Not a weak one in the bunch, either. Buy this, put it on your playlist and Smile.

Shindig Magazine Review
Sunrise Highway
Songheads Music CD
Just in time for summer, New York City-based retro power-poppers Sunrise Highway (named after a local interstate) – led by singer/songwriter and guitarist Marc Silvert and formerly known as NEO and The Sunshine Boys – surface with this inspired 12 song project that not only delightfully and self-assuredly channels the likes of the Brian Wilson-era Beach Boys, The Lovin' Spoonful and The Association but also Burt Bacharach, early Kinks and Byrds, The Young Rascals and Todd Rundgren among others. Not to mention those Mamas & Papas-like, joyful, mirth-barely-suppressed vocal harmonies.
Lead vocalist Greg Schlotthauer is particularly impressive on titles like the bittersweet tale of a 'Lonely Guy' and a dreamlike 'Life On Mars' while some creative drum programming enhances both the swept away 'Baby Be Good' and the chiffon textured 'Roundabout’. Also noted is the clever tale of the 14th floor 'Mini Bar'.
