Las Vegas native Anu~Sun is a BMI artist/ songwriter whose music offers an eclectic blend of Hip-Hop, Soul and Jazz. Being a drummer & godson of Jazz legend Lionel Hampton, one should understand why Anu’s love for music runs deep.
In 2006 Anu’s music video “Soul Brotha” was included in BETJ’s “Top 50 videos of 2006.” The artist has also been featured on BETJ’s (now Centric) programs “The J List” & “Chonicles of the Underground.
To date Anu has opened for such reputable artist as A Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest), Dwele, Bilal, Talib Kweli, Pharaoh Monch, Kid Cudi, Amel Laurrieux & Raheem DeVaughn.
In his sophomore release “The Adventures of Mr. Las Vegas” Anu portrays himself as a Vegas showman ready to strut his stuff. The project soulful hip-hop infused with a pop twist that renders itself to Maxwell (if he did more hip-hop tunes).
In short “Anu~Sun’s music is chic, soulful hip-hop brewed for the music connoisseur.” A boutique style offering that could easily be mistaken for the Brand New Heavies or Amel Larrieux’.
