He was than entered into a contest to become the first unsigned artist to ever appear on the coveted cover of the magazine. That year Mod’s music video for his song, “Same Way”, exploded on YouTube earning more than 350,000 views. Mod has shared the stage with a dozens of national acts including Shwayze, Chiodos, Breathe Carolina and even rap legends Wu Tang Clan.Growing up in Bloomington, Minnesota he was never a stranger to the music business.

Mod began touring nationally at 17 and by age 21 he had already toured the world playing drums for two successful rock bands, Scary Kids Scaring Kids and Four Letter Lie. In the peak of these bands success, Mod decided to pursue a career as a fulltime emcee. In a span of 3 years MOD SUN has released over 100 songs and all but 10 of them for free.

Stand Atlantic
Stand Atlantic has no intention of slowing down. Ever since the Australian four-piece released their breakthrough EP Sidewinder in 2017, the band was dubbed one of the "Hottest Rock Artists" in the world by Kerrang!, and they set their sights on proving it. Less than a year later, in 2018, Stand Atlantic signed to US-based Hopeless Records and released their critically-acclaimed debut album, Skinny Dipping, landing on many Top 10 lists, and receiving coveted accolades like triple J's "Feature Album" and Most Played, as well as BBC Radio 1's "Album Of The Weekend." The band embarked on a monumental touring run that saw them gain international recognition and sold out headline shows across the USA, UK, Europe, and Australia.
In 2020, Stand Atlantic released their sophomore album, Pink Elephant, which launched the band to new heights. The album charted on the Billboard Top 100 and UK Top 200 Albums for the first time. The band were on the front cover of UK's Rock Sound Magazine and were awarded 'Best Breakthrough Artist' at the Rock Sound Awards. The band also saw their lead single, "Blurry" crowned #1 Most Played on triple J Australian radio, reaching #143 on their year-end Hottest 100 and 200 countdown. This set the stage for Stand Atlantic's debut on triple J's flagship event/show "Like A Version."
