Sunjay is an extremely talented blues-folk guitarist and singer/ songwriter reminiscent of Ralph McTell, John Martyn and early Tim Buckley. Well known on the UK folk scene, Sunjay is an artist with an exquisite vocal style combined with a superb, and intricate acoustic guitar style. He also offers entertaining and often hilarious stories and anecdotes, he walks onto a stage and addresses the audience as though he is sitting down to play music with a group of close friends; a completely natural approach for a young man who picked up the guitar when he was just four years old and hasn’t put it down since.
