American Songwriter has Sunny War atop its list of artists to watch in 2022. “We wouldn’t be surprised if the Los Angeles-based folk artist Sunny War had a Grammy nomination or two by this time next year,” the site writes, on the way to comparing her to the likes of Brandi Carlile and Valerie June. “She’s that skilled at both writing and performing. She is a spirit stanchly unto herself. In many ways, War seems like the next Americana artist to pop into mainstream conversations.” See the full list here.
Sunny War’s 2021 LP Simple Syrup is at radio now, and you can hear her as a featured player on the most recent single from Particle Kid’s upcoming LP Time Capsule.
