"In the tradition of Public Enemy and Rage Against the Machine, Eastern Sunz provide a fresh take on political, social, and environmental issues. Intelligent lyrics, captivating production, and timely subject matter are the driving force behind Eastern Sunz music.
Portland duo Courage and TravisT have steadily been touring nationwide as well as overseas, and continue to rapidly expand their fanbase to all corners of the world. They have released five full length albums including the most recent, Corroded Utopia.
Eastern Sunz offer a powerful alternative to hip-hop's status quo by bringing focus to a wide variety of topics under the guise of identifiable and entertaining music. They successfully raise important questions regarding the current condition of the world without alienating the casual listener."
