Toronto based singer songwriter Kae Sun turned to his native Ghana for inspiration for his new EP, Outside the Barcode. The return to his homeland after nine years of living in Canada renewed his drive for creating the raw and non-commoditized artistic experiences that shaped his passion for music.
Outside the Barcode is an authentic and reflective collection of songs that showcase Kae's growth as a songwriter, storyteller and guitarist. Recorded on 2-inch tape on a farm in Ontario the raw acoustic songs recall the sense of community and authenticity that inspired the tracks. Kae's focus was to create a more shared listening experience rather than dictating his audience's experiences.
"It's not about making music to get something out of people, but rather sharing experiences, capturing moments and communicating through music and lyrics," he says. The result is an EP that conjures the collaborative spirit and culture of sharing that Kae experienced in Ghana.
This new effort by the singer-songwriter builds on the success of his previous releases. Lion on a Leash (2009), the well-received follow up to his EP Ghost Town (2007) landed on the iTunes 2009 Rewind List and earned esteemed reviews from Exclaim, The Montreal Gazette, OkayPlayer.com and topped many critic's lists for top indie release of the year. The success of Kae's work has led him to play venues and festivals across Canada, UK, Dubai and Ghana.
Outside The Barcode is available for free download as of June 29 via Kae's website.
