You could be forgiven for thinking at first listen that Sunjay is older than his 22 years. With a relaxed and confident manner, vocal style and mastery of the guitar 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 instrument when just 4 years old and hasn’t put it down since.

Sunjay’s style has that natural drift between folk and blues and both camps have recognised his obvious flair. There have been a clutch of award nominations, including winning the Wath Festival Young Performers Award. He also made the final selection for the BBC’s Young Folk Award in 2012, had three nominations at the Exposure Music Awards 2014 and was also recognised by the 2014 British Blues Awards.

Drawing from a rich, musical and cultural background it is hardly surprising that Sunjay has quickly become acknowledged as one of the folk scene’s rising stars. His performances have been described as “mature & confident”, while his guitar playing has been hailed as “superb, brilliant, experienced, intricate & faultless”.

Following a recent stint playing Buddy Holly in a touring musical theatre production Sunjay has recently released his fourth album ‘Sunjay Sings Buddy’
