Sunjay

Gaining critical acclaim from the national press and his peers, Sunjay is one of the UK’s brightest young stars.

“An amazing picker, a must see.” – Terry Reid 

“He’s a wizard on the guitar!” – Vin Garbutt

Nov 2015, welcomed Sunjay’s latest release ‘Black & Blues’. Returning to New Mountain Music Studios with producer Eddy Morton (The Bushbury Mountain Daredevils), ‘Black & Blues’ was recorded in a single day on 25th August 2015. The album, comprised of 10 traditional blues songs, interpreted and arranged by Sunjay, showcasing his powerful vocals and his intricate, masterful guitar playing.

“Quite a few of these songs I have been singing & playing since I was about 5 years old. My dad taught me Buddy Holly songs when I first started playing guitar.  Pretty soon I realized that finger-picking the guitar looked much better than strumming. That was my introduction to the blues, although I don’t think I would have been able to define ‘Blues music’ at the time. There was something about that kind of music that intrigued me. It’s funny to look back now and to realize that I knew very little about the content of the song!”

In 2016, Sunjay will be sharing the stage with Pentangle,

“Black and Blues is a testimony to the skill and talent of Sunjay who is without doubt one of the slickest dudes to sit behind a guitar. He sounds cool, plays cool, looks cool so much so you almost expect a little light to come when he opens his guitar case.” Folkall.Blogspot.
