Time for yet another critically acclaimed artist to visit Mrs Yarringtons Music club , this time it is BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award 2012 nominee and and winner of the Wath Festival Young Performers’ Award, Sunjay Brayne.
Passionate about his music, Sunjay Brayne is rapidly developing into one of the best young solo performers on the English acoustic scene.
Aged just 19 his performances have been described as “mature & confident” while his guitar playing has been hailed as “superb, brilliant, experienced, intricate & faultless”.
Is it Folk? is it Blues? his repertoire goes far beyond a single classification with influences from Chris Smither and Roger Brooks to Buddy Holly, Mark Knopfler, and, of course, pure Sunjay Brayne. Sunjay’s debut CD ‘Seems So Real’ was released a month prior to his success at the BBC Young Folk Award Semi-Finals and has sold like hotcakes over the past year.
Recorded in a single day, the album reflects Sunjay’s virtuosity perfectly. One man, one guitar, and each track recorded live without overdubbing.
As you would expect from an album made in this way, it’s has a raw quality -raw talent in the purest form and drew such comments as, “Great playing and above all else it really swings...I’m going to have to connect jump leads to your fingers.” – Steve Tilston,
