THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Sunlust were birthed in early 2018 in Toronto by Stephanie Woulfe (guitar and vocals), Dan Wiktor (drums) and Stefano Signorile (bass). Stephanie moved from her small hometown in rural Ontario in 2017, looking to pursue music and find like-minded band mates to play her songs. In a short couple of months, a classified ad led to drummer Dan, who recruited friend Stefano Signorile to play bass and the trio formed Sunlust.

Drawing from a variety of influences, including grunge, garage, punk, classic rock, and alternative, the trio began their musical journey playing live shows extensively throughout the city. Sunlust have had the pleasure of playing live with Ready the Prince, Zig Mentality, Frankie the Pig, Joe Cool and Barry Lyndon, to name a few.

With dozens of shows behind them, Sunlust began recording what was planned to be their five-track debut EP in December 2019 with the help of engineer, mixer, and producer Lorne Hounsell. Lorne is best known for his work with Fucked Up, Cuff the Duke, Bedouin Soundclash, among other notable Canadian artists. As the EP progressed and the 2020 pandemic slowed down the live music scene, the band began recording an additional five songs with Dan’s brother and the band’s good friend Jack Wiktor at Cadence House in Toronto.

In early 2021, all 10 tracks were completed and compiled to make the LP Geek Confessions, with Side A being the songs done with Lorne Hounsell and side B being the second session with Jack Wiktor. Sunlust are looking forward to getting back out to play live, moshing with friends, and tearing up the stage!
