Capitol Sun Rays is a rock and roll band featuring Luther Dickinson, Amy Helm, Grahame Lesh and the three core members of Birds of Chicago: Allison Russell, JT Nero and Drew Lindsay
The Rays' sound is loose and shuffling, or zipped up tight, depending how they happen to be feeling at that moment. They believe in the contours of a song, but are happy to bust it wide open... sometimes they'll give to you in black and white, sometimes in psychedelic technicolor.
It took a fair few years -- and many miles -- for these six souls to come together. They are grateful for the journey.
Rough weather is all around, it seems, and shelter from the storm can be hard to come by. When Capitol Sun Rays are on stage, you can see they're offering it to each other, and anyone else who wants in.
