Meet the Band

Arc of the Sun was founded by Jonah Amster, who composed, recorded, and produced nearly the entire album on his own. From 2014-2015, four new band members were added to make Arc what it is today.
Jonah Amster
Lead guitarist and vocalist
Jonah is the founder and backbone of Arc of the Sun. After writing and composing the songs in college, Jonah reached out to the musical community and found some amazing artists that make Arc what it is today. As lead guitarist and vocalist, Jonah creates an exhilarating atmosphere unlike any other.
David Colon-Margolies
Rhythm guitar and vocals
In the summer of 2014, Jonah teamed up with David to fill in on rhythm guitar for a local DC Progressive Metal band. While playing with Jonah, David introduced the remaining members of the band to Jonah. After agreeing to perform rhythm guitar and vocals, the rest is history.
Martin MacAlister
Collaborative mixing and screaming vocals
While working together, David introduced Jonah to Martin MacAlaster of Virginia ska band Kill Lincoln, who began collaboratively mixing Arc Of The Sun’s first record with Jonah, after agreeing to perform screaming vocals for the band.
Kamran Hassan
Bass guitar
Kamran Hassan joined Arc from Martin’s project as bass guitarist and became the last, but vital, member of the band.
