Amy Priya and Stephen Sunshine wonder if their style of music might be characterized as “urbangrass.”
Sub-genre classification remains debatable, there’s one thing that’s clear about this duo: Their music is eccentric and old-timey — an off-color coffee-shop-type experience.
Sunshine Nights beams brightest when the instrumentation takes focus. Solos on song such as “NYScene,” “Bedford Stomp” and “Coney Island” immerse the listener in a tactful mastery of scales.
Priya and Sunshine plan to tour this fall and spring. Sample their songs and check the dates at sunshinenights.com.
