Sunny & Chair
A singer-songwriter of decent descent; simple, melodic songs with a guarantee of no rock-and-roll clichés. The lyrics are elegantly worded and spawn from real life as opposed to sitting down and making something up just to write a song. It's a smidgeon of folk, a jammy thumbprint of acoustic rock, and a ladleful of impassioned singing and playing; good songs, earnestly crafted by a talented musician. A slightly knackered old piano, a beautiful guitar and a phonographic-sense-of-hope voice are brought to bear on his new EP, 'Sunny and Chair', which is available here. Influences: Five for Fighting, James Taylor, Ben Folds Five, Damien Rice, Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, Radiohead, The Cardigans.
