Start Making Sense
Start Making Sense are selling out rooms throughout the eastern half of the United States. This band is a huge hit as the Talking Heads are never on tour, and the band’s amazing dedication to the music and fun loving attitude has proven to be a favorite at clubs and festivals.
If David Byrne is one of the geniuses of modern times, then Start Making Sense is a tribute to genius. The musicians in this 7-piece Talking Heads Tribute take pride in faithfully recreating the music of Talking Heads entire career, including songs Talking Heads never performed live! Together they bring much of the Heads unique live show to the stage, with front man Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne, some have said this is the closest thing you’ll get to seeing Talking Heads again.
Drawing influence from artists such as Rage Against the Machine, J. Dilla, Primus, Weather Report, and many, many more, Cycles fuses an eclectic blend of genres to produce a truly unique and cohesive sound. Although only two years old, Cycles have over 200 shows under their belt with tours extending across the entire U.S. In the middle of a massive Fall Tour in support of their first full-length album, Vacation, the band is dialed and at the top of their game.
The first full-length album, Vacation, is out now. After releasing two DIY EPs recorded in their basement within the first year of the band’s existence, the guys were eager to do some work in a real studio. Recorded at Mountain Star Studio in Blackhawk, CO, Vacation captures the current sound and direction of the band. This album presents the listener with an accurate representation of Cycles’ uniquely dark and heavy sound, catchy hooks, and exceptional musicianship.

“Musically heavy songs that contain thoughtful lyrics and legitimately interesting compositions and changes” –Grateful Web
“This album blurs lines between genres and takes listeners on a sonic journey.” -NYS Music
