MORE THAN A ONE NIGHT STAND
THE NEW LIVE ALBUM FROM SUNJAY
Having gigged prolifically for the last decade, opening stages for esteemed artists such as Steeleye Span, Martin Simpson and Show of Hands, as well as being nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, it no longer feels appropriate to call Sunjay a rising star on the scene. Indeed, he has well and truly risen and earned his place as an established and widely admired artist in his own right. Renowned for his astonishing guitar playing, mature vocals and trademark wit, Sunjay has been turning all the right heads and captivating audiences up and down the UK with his deftly executed take on the timeless folk and blues style. Following on from the success of his 2019 album ‘Devil Came Calling’, he is back with the perfect remedy for any 2020 blues!
In a year where gigs have come to an abrupt halt and stage curtains have dropped indefinitely, Sunjay is stepping into the breach and serving up an impressive new album of live recordings to fill the void. 'More Than a One Night Stand' consists of eleven perfectly executed songs recorded over the course of two shows. The album manages to capture the raw energy, humour and enthusiasm that can only be found in a live performance...only now it can be enjoyed again and again, even once the night is over. The majority of the tracks are interpretations of folk and blues favourites, with Sunjay taking the opportunity to record some of the frequently requested numbers from his live repertoire that he may not have otherwise released. The assured delivery of these songs showcase Sunjay at his best: on stage, guitar in hand, with an audience in his thrall. Nobody can say when normal order will resume and venues will reopen their doors...but with a live album offering of this standard, perhaps we can all bear to wait a little longer...
'More Than A One Night Stand' will be released worldwide, via digital platforms ONLY on 4th September 2020. Fans can download the album directly from Sunjay's website www.sunjay.tv from 1st August 2020.
