About Cosmos Sunshine

At the age of fourteen, seeking a deeper and more expressive creative outlet,
Cosmos Sunshine began playing guitar. By fifteen he was writing his own material
and playing professionally; performing in as many bars, clubs & high school
auditoriums near his rural Connecticut home, as would have him.

After a brief stint at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Cosmos moved to New
York City and began his tenure as lead guitarist, songwriter and bandleader for the
1990’s juggernauts, Cherokee Sex Workshop and Walkinbird. The latter’s
eponymous debut album was produced by the legendary Warren Haynes, who
became a mentor to Cosmos, teaching him the ways of songwriting, studio
production and guitar wizardry. Those were important lessons, which still serve him
today.

Since that time he has been an active solo performer and the front man for the
bands Los Lotharios, The Cosmos Sunshine Band and Dan Patch.

In total, he has amassed a discography of four full length albums and four EPs and
has played some of the best venues in New York City (Brooklyn Bowl, Irving Plaza,
CBGB, Wetlands Preserve, The Nightingale Bar) and toured nationally (opening for
such greats as Gov’t Mule, Blues Traveler, The Spin Doctors, Johnny Winter, Lenny
Kravitz and many, many more).
He continues to follow the muse, wherever it may lead….
