Sunspot is creating Music & Podcasts

We love writing and performing our original songs, and in addition to the live shows, albums, and videos, we've created the weekly podcast, See You On The Other Side.

The podcast is a fun outlet for us to (in the words of the Isthmus newspaper), “embrace our weirdness” by diving headfirst into the world of the paranormal. It's an in-depth exploration of the weird and wonderful that we’ve been writing songs about since the beginning. It also provides inspiration for us to create a new song related to the unique topic we cover each week.

This Patreon campaign offers the opportunity to show your support with a monthly donation which will help us cover the expenses of creating & publishing the podcasts, producing high quality recordings of our new songs, and continuing to generate fun and unique ways of sharing our live productions.

We look forward to getting to know our community better through this platform!

What are we currently producing?
We're continuously working on multiple projects, almost all of which are available for free: 
  • A new episode of See You On The Other Side each Monday
  • A demo recording of a fresh, (almost always) brand new original song. This is included at the end of the podcast episode, and relates to the topic of that particular episode. We also make it available for free streaming and MP3 download
  • Every 3-4 months, we select three of our favorite demos and record them at a professional recording studio for release as an EP
  • A paranormal newsletter summarizing our favorite "weird" news stories from the week
  • A band newsletter to keep fans updated on Sunspot's latest news
  • Blog posts related to the podcast topics, music, and other things on our minds
  • Music videos for our original songs, and once in a while, covers of other artists' songs
  • Photos, tweets, and live video streams from the interesting places we sometimes find ourselves
  • Live performances at clubs, festivals, and venues (often with free admission)
