Sunbeam [Band]

Well alright, alright.  Here we have something special.  We’ve covered the likes of The Ascetic Junkies on Trainwreck’d before.  Therefore you know that pretty indie folk rock holds a serious place in our hearts.  Well, we got another one for you fine folks.  Introducing Portland Oregon’s Sunbeam.  A fancy new group that indulges in the glory of steel drums, sad eyes, and perfected storytelling.  And like the acclaimed AJ’s, this is a group that does an amazing job intermingling the beauty of male/female vocals.  Whenever unity can be found so masterfully done in folk (or any music for that matter), you can rest assure that you have something wonderful spilling out of your auxiliary cords.

Sunbeam is that sort of group that will make the shyest of white dude’s dance the night away, yet feel the poetic pull of such beautiful songs on the scale of Woody Guthrie his early years.  Last August found Sunbeam debuting their genius to the world with the release of the freshman LP, Sunbeam & The Lovely Ghost.  The beautiful old school approach to modern indie-folk the have become known for in the city of Roses has now reached audiences worldwide, and should be for their diligence.  This a project that simply came around due to guitarist/vocalist Brian Hall’s desire to not take himself too seriously, and just have fun with making music, which in turn lead to a project that is seriously awesome.

If you’re looking for a band that is sure to bring on some good feelings whether at your favorite downtown bar, or driving in your crummy car on a crummy day on the way to your absolutely crummy day job, this is the band that will enlighten you in ways that downright need sometimes.  This is good.  This is Sunbeam.

Sunbeam & The Lonely Ghost is available now from the band’s Website, as well as CDBaby and iTunes.
