Brooklyn Indie Roots duo, Sunshine (aka Amy Santos and Steven Ferrara) and their 7 piece live band, The Knights, have today released their 2nd album, "Sunshine Nights".
Sunshine have been featured on this blog previously (click here to see recent post) and we have followed their career closely as they progress and develop with their unique and distinctive Indie-Roots sounds.
Marty's review: Sunshine have taken their influences of traditional jazz, blues and Americana and have created what I would term a "roots celebration". "Sunshine Nights" sounds like it has come straight out of the Mississippi Delta or New Orleans. From the acoustic blues of "Moonbeam Days" to the upbeat and rollicking latest single "Bowl O'Cherries", this album has everything from New Orleans style brass, gospel harmonies, country blues, slide guitars, driving piano and bluesy vocals that sway and swing with each lyric. Trying to pick a favorite track is a challenge, and mine are the bluesy "American Folklore" and the brassy "This Train". Fans of Americana and roots music with devour this album and it certainly deserves repeated listens.
