Sun Blood Stories is a band based in Boise, Idaho, founded in 2011,[1] which is known for its mesmerizing live performances[2] and experimentalism which encompasses high-desert shoegaze moodiness, psychedelia, the blues,[3] and elements of funk.[4] Named after the color of Boise's skies during summer forest fires, their live sound has been liked to modern-day opera and the concept album[5], and a "travelling, shamanistic musical ceremony.[6] They have received international acclaim.[7][8][9] Prince was a part of Amber Pollard's life before she was born, as the musician had touched her mother's belly in passing during his Purple Rain Tour in 1985; Amber, who is of mixed race, was born one month later. She is a vegan. [10]
