Can I Sit With You?

By: Laurie Gallardo

This is music magic personified, an instant fave with your Austin Music Minute maven. An artist who joyfully blurs genre lines and understands – really appreciates – why this is special must be given multiple repeated listens.

When asked what kind of music she plays, Los-Angeles (via Nashville)-based songwriter Sunny War makes it clear it’s not set in stone, nor should it be. Blues? Punk? The sound of memories from lying in the field to watch the stars? Multi-soul-ified R&B-folk tangent? Sure, why not? One of the best descriptions ever comes from Sunny War herself: Perhaps Robert Johnson with a shot of Bad Brains, though even that’s not sufficient enough.

Make plans to catch Sunny War in a livestream performance starting at 10 p.m. Central tonight, Saturday August 22, on the City of Los Angeles Recreation and Parks YouTube channel. You can also check out the track “No Time Soon,” featured on today’s AMM, on the EP Can I Sit With You on Bandcamp.
