The SunstreakEdit

In February 2006, Schuler joined pop/rock band The Sunstreak. The band then went on to make history by selling nearly 25,000 copies of its independent self-titled debut on the Vans Warped Tour that year, gaining placement on multiple Billboard charts throughout the summer. This buzz caught the attention of Billy Mann, who then signed the group to management under his company, Stealth Entertainment. The band would soon tour the east coast with Daughtry, and support numerous groups like We The Kings, Gym Class Heroes, Paramore, Kevin Rudolph and Anberlin and appear at festivals such as The Bamboozle.

In the spring of 2009, the band self released their 2nd full length album (also produced/recorded/mixed by Schuler) titled "Once upon a lie". Originally containing 19 songs, the LP was then later released in a condensed, 11 song version by Merovingian Music/EMI Records. This marked the band's debut on a major label. The music video for the leading single "Until I met you" found its way to Number 6 on the MTV countdown and press included articles in publications such as Seventeen, Cosmo Girl, J-14 and other teen magazines/online outlets.

The band has not made any announcements regarding new material or tour plans since 2010.[11][12][13][14][15][16]
