According to Sunny War, “nothing great ever happens to people unwilling to take risks.” The up-and-coming songwriter recently told Shoutout LA about being 21 and working as a mall janitor. According to War, “I was very depressed because I had no time to pursue music and thought I’d work at the mall forever. The big risk I took was quitting my job and pursuing music full time with no idea how to do so. I played on the streets for years and sold cd’s out of my guitar case. I was poor and barely making rent every month but I knew I would rather play music on the streets than work another day at that mall.” Read the full interview here.
Simple Syrup – Sunny War’s most recent in an impressively prolific string of releases – is at radio now.
