    Order your CD

    It's been a long time coming, but we've finally released a collection of original material that we think showcases the best of Fat Sunday. All of the songs on this album were written by Joe Hewitt over many years and can be described as upbeat acoustic with a folk influence.

    The album has something for everyone: ballads like Whirpool of Schemes, the haunting Silence of Love, and upbeat tracks like Good Love and Twistin' Me 'Round. We hope you enjoy listening!

    Album Mixing

    After spending a number of weekends in the recording studio, we're now in the process of mixing what we hope will be the final songs that will be released on the album. Pictured to the left, deep in thought, is our producer Chris Tondreau from Green Room Recording in Hamilton.

    We recorded slightly more songs than we anticipated so now have the difficult decision on deciding which ones we want to release right now versus those that we'll hold back for the future.

About Us

Fat Sunday was formed in 2014 by three Burlington residents who met through running.

Songwriter and guitarist, Joe Hewitt talked drummer Bill Allan and bassist Stephen Miller into joining him for rehearsals and recording sessions, where they began exploring a slate of original and cover material. The group continues to build momentum, and can now be found performing live at local venues.

Their style could be considered relaxing acoustic folk influenced by the likes of Lightfoot, Prine and Rogers.
