Urban Sun has become part of the very fabric that is the NYC music scene. Now we want to take our music and funky message around the world! To do that, we need to complete our second album - Trunk Jam - and we need YOUR HELP to finish it! We want to capture all of the Urban Sun joy and energy that inspires fans and funk icons alike. The material that will be recorded on this second album has been heralded by such luminaries as Allen Toussaint, Trombone Shorty and Cyril Neville. In order for us to bring you the highest quality recordings of songs such as "Rise Up," "Good Beat," "NY Ladies,"and "Spank," we need to fund tracking, mixing, mastering, artwork and duplication. Obviously the costs incurred in completing this process are significant. Through our best efforts it has become apparent to us that we need to procure and raise funds as part of an overall strategy to complete our second album.
We profoundly appreciate your support over the years and we know how incredibly blessed we are to have a community of passionate and dedicated fans. We are touched by any donation you can make so that we can continue to create the music we love to play. Your donation makes this album yours too. Let's work together to get Trunk Jam on the shelves in Spring 2011!

Any pledge you make will automatically induct you into the band's Wall of Fame on www.urbansunmusic.com

And as you may not know, December is F.D.S. awareness month. Watch our public service announcement above to learn more about how Trunk Jam can cure this terrible, funk-less condition.Thank You.
