Seven and the Sun was an American band best known for their 2002 single "Walk with Me". Their song was used in the TV soap opera Passions[1] and was also featured in the Columbia Pictures film America's Sweethearts starring Julia Roberts, Billy Crystal, John Cusack and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It received moderate air play on American radio, reaching number 38 on the Billboard Adult Top 40, number 27 on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 and number 40 on the Billboard Top 40 Tracks chart.[2] "Walk With Me" was their only hit.

Their song "Jump (The Velvet Rope)" was featured in the Warner Bros. film Summer Catch starring Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Jessica Biel.[3]

In September, 2003, their song "Back to the Innocence" was chosen to be the theme song for "The John Walsh Show" on NBC.[4]

A second album was recorded but never released and the band has since broken up.

In 2007, Band member's Seven Williams (born Keith Volpone) & Wally Brandt reformed as Whiskey Falls with more of a country/rock flare (a la The Eagles) along with Buck Johnson and Damon Johnson (no relation).[5] The self-titled debut album was released on September 25, 2007, on the Midas Records Nashville label. It produced two Top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts in "Last Train Running" (#32)[6] and "Falling Into You" (#40).[7] A second album was never released.

Seven Williams & Wally Brandt have since dedicated their time to their music production company, We3Kings Music writing and producing music for television and film.[8][9] They have since written the theme songs to NBC's The John Walsh Show, Fox's Tru Calling and The Simple Life and ABC's The Two-Timer,[10] NBC's Minute to Win It, Tabatha’s Salon Makeover to Sarah Palin’s Alaska, Dance Moms and Ryan & Tatum: The O’Neals.[11] They have also written cues and promos for several TV shows including NBC's Las Vegas, Starting Over, Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight. Their major motion picture credits include America's Sweethearts, Summer Catch and Columbia Pictures feature The Quest[10] and most recently, 20th Century Fox Diary of a Wimpy Kid:Dog Days.
