Sitka Sun is the instrumental project of bassist/arranger Patrick Murphy. In this self-titled debut release, Murphy joined forces with producer and engineer Angelo Peters to create a cohesive album of psychedelic rhythm soundscapes. The tracks started as raw compositions and were brought to life through collaboration with a tight community of musicians in the Finger Lakes region of western New York. Recommended for long drives, desert landscapes, and contemplative days.
