A Lens to the Sun


Bass Guitar, Drums.


A Lens to the Sun is a new band out of San Diego California with a goal of making timeless music. Drawing on an eclectic mix of influences their original music spans a broad range, from delicate and introspective singer-songwriter material to angst driven brooding rock, all while carving out their own space in the landscape with a unique blend of their creative talents.
During the pandemic they have been remotely recording including a dozen or so demos and finished songs to be released on their first album. Their first single 'What You Already Know' which is out now and available everywhere.

While bass and drums have been recorded to date by guitar player Erik Elstermann, the band is looking to further develop their sound with a larger team of contributors and start booking gigs around the San Diego and Orange County area once COVID is no longer an issue. A significant amount of additional material not yet released is available to players interested in auditioning for a spot.
