Black Sunshine Biography
The Alternative-Rock outfit Black Sunshine initially was the brainchild
of extreme sports icon Matt Reardon, one of the top rated freeskiers in
the world. Reardon suffered a horrific accident that nearly led to the
amputation of his leg and during the long recovery found comfort in songwriting.

in medical bills. Confined to a hospital bed off and on for 3 years and
with nothing but time on his hands, Reardon played guitar and wrote over
With a new passion and desire to turn his songwriting into a career Reardon assembled Black Sunshine; based in Lake Tahoe, California USA, the band cosists of Reardon on vocals + guitar, Charles Lee, formerly of Loser on guitar, Chris Serafini on bass and Matthew "Toast" Young on drums.
Wasting no time, Black Sunshine took to the road and began to tour the
globe. The band has since traveled the world extensively, performing in
North America, Europe, Japan and New Zealand.
The group will release their self-titled debut album on April 13, 2010; the 11-song set includes the single "Once In My Life".
