Sugar On Fire started in February 2018 on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The band members came together through their involvement in the Carolina Bluegrass Band, the ensemble under the university’s Bluegrass Initiative, and their love of acoustic music led them to form their own group. Drawing on their bluegrass and old-time influences, as well as their interests in other musical styles, the band has created their own unique sound, full of energy and passion.
All hailing from North Carolina, Sugar On Fire consists of Reese Krome (Winston-Salem), Jon Beyle (Chapel Hill), Lee Landess (Raleigh), Patrick Truesdell (Weaverville), and Jake Cochran (Greensboro).
