NEW CD "WOODEN CIRCLE" OUT NOW. Get it here.

Mud Pie Sun is Steven and Tom puttering around with an odd little vision of popular music. They write and record quiet and loud melodic pop-psych-folkrock-garage-etc. songs in their Philadelphia-area homes.

In 1989, inspired by the American and New Zealand underground DIY pop and home-recording ethos, they began home recording 4-track cassette albums along with pal Rob. In the early 1990s, they released 3 full-length recordings under the name Mud Pie on their own and through England's Acid Tapes, and they contributed to a compilation on Boston's Sedimental label. When Tom moved to San Francisco in 1992, the combo went on extended leave.

In 2003, Tom moved back to Philadelphia. They resumed writing and recording new songs under the name Mud Pie Sun in 2004. In August 2012, they released a CD of 14 new songs called Wooden Circle under the Revolving Bell private label.
