Sunny War

Blues Folk Punk

Sunny War was born Sydney Lyndella Ward in Nashville and grew up in Los Angeles’ punk scene. She was hopping trains and living homeless on the streets from a tender age. Her music has always been raw, and she refuses to shy away from a brutally open honesty about the rougher parts of her life. Her songs blend blues, folk and punk into a powerful, emotional amalgam that cuts deeply into the hearts and minds of her listeners. LA Weekly says, "To call War a striking talent would be a drastic understatement. Her dazzling, mutant finger-picking style, born of the blues and claw hammer banjo, conjures a luscious blur of rolling rhythm and rich riff flurries bristling atop every note struck.”
