KAE SUN ON MAKING MUSIC THAT FEELS NATURAL

Posted by Megan Hilario, 2 hours, 39 minutes ago

Kae Sun is the musical moniker of Kwaku Darko-Mensah Jr. A Ghanaian-born, Montreal-based artist Kae Sun is the next artist to watch in the Canadian R&B + hip-hop landscape. Kae Sun is set to release his 3rd EP entitled Whoever Comes Knocking via Moonshine. With 2 EPs under his belt and a couple of smaller ones as well, Kae Sun has a well-rounded eclectic sound. His songs and lyrics are well-defined in musicality and lyricism channeling a fresh perspective to indie R&B soul funk with a blend of little folk and hip hop. We spoke to Kae Sun about his musical influences and transition from Ghana to Canada as he gears up for his upcoming tour and album release.
