Formed in 2013, Kicking Sunrise began their career after posting a cover of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” on YouTube. The video garnered more than 30,000 views within the first month, and ultimately led to the forming of the band.

Comprised of Joe Murphy (vocals, rhythm guitar), Ryan Hornibrook (bass, vocals), Mark Altamuro (drums), and Matt Bosco (lead guitar), Kicking Sunrise released their first single, “Here’s to the Sunrise”, in 2015. The song caught the attention of CBS3 Philadelphia, and the station adopted the song as their theme song for their morning show, “CBS3 Mornings”.

The band released their last EP, “When It’s Right”, in the winter of 2018. Since its release, Kicking Sunrise has played shows throughout the country, including dates opening up for multi-platinum recording artists such as O-Town, Aaron Carter and Tyler Hilton. The band released their latest single, “Stay Beautiful” on January 25, 2019.
