Sunny War is a folk-punk musician based in LA with a brand new album, Anarchist Gospel, and a single, "No Reason," catching fire on Americana radio. In the past two months, she performed on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" and "CBS Mornings." Rolling Stone just called her "one of the best new voices in roots music."
Michael Simmons of L.A. Weekly says “…her right thumb plunks the bass part while her forefinger upstrokes notes and chords, leaving the other three fingers unused. A banjo technique, it’s also used by acoustic blues guitarists. Her fingers are long and strong – Robert Johnson hands – in jarring contrast to the waif they’re attached to. The walking bass line sounds like a hammer striking piano keys in perfect meter, while the fills are dynamic flurries – like cluster bombs. I haven’t heard a young guitarist this dexterous and ass-kicking in eons.”
