Album Notes
Berry Matthews - Drums
Eddie Wohlford - Organ & Piano, Vocals
Kurt Butler - Guitars, Mandolin, Fiddle, Harmonica, Vocals
Michael Wright - Lead Vocals, Guitars
Ryan Aldridge - Bass, Vocals

“Suns of March” possess undeniable talent. The founding member of the band is Michael Wright. Michael’s musical contributions are lead vocals, guitar, and harmonica. Michael, along with the rest of the group are from Montgomery, AL, where the band is based. Kurt Butler adds a different dimension to the band's sound on slide and lead guitar, as well as mandolin and harmonica. The rhythm section consists of Ryan Aldridge on bass guitar and Berry Matthews on drums.

"Suns of March" skillfully blend the lead vocals of Michael with the voices of Kurt and Ryan. The groups stage presence guarantees that everyone will take notice and listen. What else would you expect from a group that has shared the stage with such greats as Brad Cotter, Damon Johnson (Brother Cane), Diamond Rio, Edwin Mccain, Joan Jett, Josh Todd (Buckcherry), Josh Turner, The Kicks, Lance Miller, Loverboy, Matt Lindahl, and McQueen Street?

There is no substitute for seeing "Suns of March" perform live. However, if you are unable to catch a performance, you can check out the band's new album, Bulletproof Heart. The album contains eleven songs. Like chapters form novels, these songs combine to form more than just 3-minute statements but rather a story, an idea, and philosophy; thus, the band did not simply write songs, but an album. "Suns of March" produced the CD themselves. Jeff Tomei (Matchbox 20, Smashing Pumpkins, Jerry Cantrell) mixed Bulletproof Heart while Rodney Mills (Pearl Jam, REM, Journey) mastered it.

Another element arose from the making of the disc; Eddie Wohlford joined the band on piano and organ. Eddie has played with such stars as Beth Neilson Chapman and "Styx" guitarist Tommy Shaw.

Bulletproof Heart starts off with an up-tempo number: "I Need Love." The song is one of the closest numbers to mainstream the band has to offer; the track could easily fit into almost any popular music genre with its' memorable hooks. The third song on the album, San Jose, was the groups first single which gained exposure for the group in over 25 countries. The fourth track on Bulletproof Heart is an upbeat number called "Hanna." "Hanna" starts out with a country/southern rock feel, then, in the middle, there is a killer New Orleans / Dixieland jazz style take that comes out of nowhere. The only melancholy song on the album is entitled "Sentimental Moonlight." A very nice use of the violin in a classical sense is exhibited in this song. The latter part of the album contains a hard rock attitude. The song "I Learned It from You" is what everyone wants to say to that ex that just ripped his or her heart to shreds and the title track "Bulletproof Heart" solidified the groups fan base in over 50 countries. This entire album exhibits elements of Southern pride and hard rock edginess. Music on their terms.

Suns of March is doing it their way. No selling out just pure, soul felt music.

i saw you guys at off the wagon i just wanna say i loved it dude
i got your cd when i saw you at of the wagon and i just wanna tell you that i love it. you guys rock dude.

Crime of not having this album...
Desperados be aware there’s finally a good Southern soundtrack to accompany your crime sprees. That’s right this is knee-slapping country-fueled Southern rock perfect for the professional bank robber. So load up your six shooter and grab your ski mask, and find yourself a getaway driver. The Old West has plenty of cowboys that would love to groove to the fiddle and slide guitar that comprise the backbone of Suns of March. Smother.Net and Suns of March do not endorse stealing or crime of any nature (especially the crime of not having this album).

10 words or less? I can do it in 4..the perfect music experience
Why would you buy Bulletproof Heart? The question is why would you not. There is something for everyone on the disc. Everyone wants to fly his or her beloved off to a romantic getaway like in the song “San Jose” or tell that evil ex that all the cruel things he or she has done will come back to haunt them like in the song, “I Learned It from You.” Whether you enjoy a classical use of the violin (like in “Sentimental Moonlight”) or a Charlie Daniels type-roaring fiddle (like in “Together Again”) there is something for everyone. If you love New-Orleans Jazz you will love “Hannah.” If you like killer guitar licks you will love the title track. Bulletproof Heart is what music is supposed to be.
Plato, one of the most creative and influential thinkers in western philosophy once said, “Where words fail, music speaks.” Music is stimulation for the spirit. It brings out the purest and ardent of emotions, captivates the mind, and lingers in your heart. Its purpose is to elevate the soul to a higher state of nirvana and celebrate life. Today’s airways lay littered with the same type of songs and stories. Fortunately, there is a new, vibrant and optimistic voice captivating and invigorating the Southeast. The voice I speak of is a choir of vocal harmonies, instrumental vibrations, and the uplifting concepts of the “Suns of March.” The "Suns of March" have made Plato vision a reality by releasing Bulletproof Heart.

Unique sound!
Suns of March has a unique sound that has set them apart, truly carving out a niche for them in the international music scene. We love them and are always blown away by their music and persona. – Chestnut Station / Gadsden, AL

Suns of March Opens for Diamond Rio in Auburn!
A band based out of Montgomery will prepare the crowd at Auburn University for legendary country superstars Diamond Rio. / Diamond Rio has had 25 top ten country hits and a string of number ones including two from their latest album “Completely.” The group has put out eight albums and over 10 million in sales. Their new single “Redneck Love” from their forth-coming album will be coming out sometime this month. / Suns of March electric stage show shall surely pump up the crowd for the former C0untry Music Association Vocal Group of the Year on Friday, Oct. 8, at Auburn University. / When I say, band based out of Montgomery, don’t be fooled. This is not a group of high school kids pretending to be Aerosmith in their parent’s garage. This is the real deal. / Suns of March has already opened for such acts as Josh Turner, Josh Todd, brad Cotter, Edwin McCain, and Joan Jett. Their mix engineer, Jeff Tomei, has worked with Matchbox 20 and Smashing Pumpkins. They have even performed on the AUM campus at the 2003 Welcome Week. / Their album, “Bulletproof Heart” has sold thousands of copies throughout the United States and Europe. Yes, Suns of March has developed a following in Europe. I told you this was not like your average “local band.” / The group has been told to prepare for a crowd upwards of 10, 000. Upon hearing this number, lead singer Michael Wright said, “It’s a privilege to open for Diamond Rio. We feel we have a chance to reach a vast audience and show them the unique Suns of March experience.” / What is this “Suns of March experience” you might ask yourself? Well, it is kind of like love: hard to put into words, but possibly one of the best things you will ever encounter. / The band consists of five guys: Michael Wright (lead vocals, guitars), Steve Stewart (drums), Tom Shrout (bass), Charles Smith (slide and lead guitars), and Zebulon Bowles (electric fiddle and mandolin). Clay Lord recently left the band because of “love” in D.C. / Yep, you heard me. Suns of March has a fiddle player. Now, you are thinking a band opening up for a country legend like Diamond Rio has a fiddle player, what’s the big deal? Well, Suns of March is not a country band but more a new type of rock band, and alternative southern rock band to be exact. / A rock band with an electric fiddle and a mandolin! Blasphemy in the music world one might think; however, just listen to the group’s vocal and instrumental combinations and you will have the “Suns of March experience.” / The band will be performing some of the songs from their new CD “Bulletproof Heart.” Look forward to hearing such future classics as “San Jose,” “I Need Love,” and the ultimate get back at your ex song “I Learned It From You.”

Tommy Styles / The Brew Pub

A band for everyone!
I love this band! No matter what your favorite style of music is, Suns of March draws you in and makes you love what they are doing. They truly are a band that has something for everyone.

Jason Watson / Montgomery’s Journey Magazine

Rare and special!
Suns of March have melded together a unique blend of vocals and instruments with an overall vision that makes this CD rare and special. I was impressed by how quickly I was singing along and feeling the passion behind the music - eventually not wanting the CD to end. As the word gets out on this project and Suns of March, their fan base will skyrocket.

Marc Felice

You were awesome!
You guys were awesome and everyone had a great time. Your CD is now a current fixture in my car and most of the guys in the house want a copy.

Charlie W. S, Jr.

Why are these guys not signed?
I purchased this CD a few months ago and have yet to stop humming the melodies! The music is kickin' and the lyrics are even better! Besides having an unbeievable drummer, bassist, and lead singer, these guys have a fiddle player-IN A ROCK BAND!!! Check them and the CD out ASAP!!!

I am the first one to admit that I am pretty hard on unsigned bands and independent CD releases. I cannot overlook bad production and worse songwriting. It is with great pleasure, Blunterettes, that I am able to introduce the first independent band whose CD has made me jump for joy, since I have taken over reviewing CDs here at! / At first I received a four-song sampler CD from Suns of March, who hail from Montgomery, Alabama. Be still my musical heart! The southern influenced hard rockers have that proverbial "it" that we in the music biz look for. With some trepidation--worrying that the other songs on their CD might not be as good, I requested a copy of the full CD, "Bulletproof Heart'. The whole collection, I am happy to report did not let me down. / Hard rocking enough for the boys, and a tender side for the girls, vocalist Michael Wright has a wonderfully expressive voice. The title track "Bulletproof Heart" has a straight-ahead rock sound with great harmonies. "I Need Love" is reminiscent of The Black Crowes during their heyday. "San Jose" showcases fiddler Zebulon Bowles, whose wonderful technique shows an ease of hand, just enough to color the song without running amok. "Hanna" has a bit more country twang, with some great New Orleans-style trumpeting in the background. / I keep 20 CDs in my car - the ones that I want to listen to when I go for long drives, ones that I want to learn the lyrics so I can sing along on the highway. This CD has made it to my car. I highly recommend that you too take a trip, this time on the information superhighway -- to and pick up a copy of Sun of March's extraordinary 'Bulletproof Heart.'
