An Ely musician is gaining critical acclaim from the national press and his peers as ‘one of the UK’s brightest young stars.’
Sunjay’s latest release is called ‘Black & Blues’ and sees him returning to New Mountain Music Studios with producer Eddy Morton.
It was recorded in a single day in August.
The album, comprised of 10 traditional blues songs, interpreted and arranged by Sunjay, showcases his powerful vocals and his intricate, masterful guitar playing.
“Quite a few of these songs I have been singing and playing since I was about five years old,” he said.

“There was something about that kind of music that intrigued me. It’s funny to look back now and to realise that I knew very little about the content of the song.”
