The spotlight for todays Artist Discovery is firmly focussed on Alternative Pop artist, Sonny Winnebago!
Riding on a wave of refreshingly originality, the Welsh-Australian singer songwriter offers well crafted and satisfyingly chilled vibes - fusing together tight and tasteful instrumentation with an authentically raw and passionate vocal performance...
Having grown up in Perth (Australia), Sonny Winnebago - real name Harvey Jones - moved to the UK as a teenager. With a strong passion for music, the singer songwriter quickly picked up his first guitar and formed a band with friends. For Harvey, his musical adventure had begun...
He went on to study music production in Surrey, before moving to the English capital to further develop his skills and establish himself within the world of music. Sonny dropped his debut solo single 'Take Me For A Ride' last year and has been defining his sound ever since!
Recently released on 8th July 2020, Sonny's latest single 'Little Sun' is his first track to be released with exciting Cardiff (Wales) based record label Phwoar & Peace - making an extremely exciting new chapter in the talented musicians journey.
The track was recorded by talented producer Charlie Francis (R.E.M., The High Llamas, Sweet Baboo) and features musical contributions from Davey Newington (Boy Azooga), Matt Evans (KEYS) and Steve Black (Sweet Baboo).
An enjoyable listen from start to finish, the track showcases Winnebago's solid songwriting abilities with a dynamically pleasing structure and its fair share of catchy vocal melodies. Sonny himself gives a committed performance - demonstrating his skilful vocal abilities.
Discussing the inspiration for the song, the Welsh-Australian musician describes:
“I wrote Little Sun as an act of surrender - I had to admit to myself that I'm a headless chicken! It felt really good to lay it all out. All my desperation to do better & be better in life caught up in this dark, introspective moment. I was living in London & working in a coffee shop. I felt quite powerless - having no plans for the future. It all kind of felt like a time bomb.
I wanted to get away from it all - to live in a garden, or the sea! I had this big realisation that we're all winging it, all the time, haha. How can you prepare for the future when you don't know what it's going to look like? Many of our anxieties come from the fact that we project our subconscious into something that doesn't and will never exist.
Writing Little Sun really helped to take the pressure off 'finding my way' in life. I allowed myself to express those thoughts and feelings, and felt better because of it.”
We think there's an exciting future ahead for this up and coming Alt Pop artist and we can't wait to see it unfold! Here's to Harvey Jones, AKA Sonny Winnebago!
