Clint Crisher and Painted Sun | Artists
Clint Crisher and Painted Sun is an Alternative rock band, sometimes referred to as “Painted Sun. Their style, which is rooted in blues-based hard rock, has come to also incorporate elements of pop, heavy metal, rhythm and blues, and garage punk rock. The band was formed in Fernandina Beach, Florida in 1993. Drummer Robert Jewell and bassist Robert Campbell, originally in a band together, worked part-time with singer Clint Crisher and asked him to consider singing with them in their garage on the Island. Guitarist Dave Medure joined them, and formed Painted Sun. In late 1993, the band began developing a following in Jacksonville.
They were signed to Crisher Entertainment in 1994, and released Monogomy. By the end of the 1994, they were among the most popular alternative rock bands in Florida and developed a loyal following of fans, often referred to as the “Suns.” However, an internal conflict took their toll on the band, which resulted in the departures of Clint Crisher, in 1995. Although Clint gained the level of popularity as a solo artist throughout the late 1990s, his goal was their comeback with a followup to Monogomy which would have them back on tour and recording music with the same members or new ones. Auditions for the new band are set for late 2009 with Clint Crisher as the lead singer.
