Balcony Sunrise

Electronica // Belfast, Antrim

'The Balcony Sunrise plan is a simple one - “soundtrack your daydreams”. With over a million streams, daydreams have been enhanced in New York and LA, in São Paulo and Seoul. Over on Instagram, a community of music fans have used this music to accompany their blissful reels of Norwegian sunsets, beach days in Cyprus and Miami mornings.

Balcony Sunrise is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland and is a collaborative project with brothers David and Stephen. The music is composed on synths and Ableton software and smartly picked guitar lines on a Fender Stratocaster. Producer, David Ferris, finds his inspiration in the city pop artwork of Hiroshi Nagai, in the music of The xx and the family’s old Dire Straits records.

In 2023, his music was sought out by fans in 158 countries. Tunes like ‘LET'S GO’, ‘Dream City’ and ‘Sunset Drive’ took the listener to peak experiences, real or imagined. All senses are invoked; in a world of chaos, Balcony Sunrise brings us respite. His music has been featured in Hot Press, XS Noise, Belfast Telegraph and continues to get support from Golden Plec, Chordblossom and radio stations such as 8RadioIreland and Cool FM.

The music has been used on American and Irish film productions and now the world of live performance has just begun with a memorable set at the Oh Yeah Centre for the Scratch My Progress Showcase event.'
