w/ Kelli Schaefer
It’s no secret that great art comes from the margins. From those who are either pushed to create from inner forces, or who create to show they deserve to be recognized. Los Angeles-based street singer, guitarist, and roots music revolutionary Sunny War has always been an outsider, always felt the drive to define her place in the world through music and songwriting. Her restless spirit, a byproduct of growing up semi-nomadic with a single mother, led her to Venice Beach, California, where she’s been grinding the pavement for some years now, making a name for her prodigious guitar work and incisive songwriting, which touches on everything from police violence to alcoholism to love found and lost.
With two full-length records and two EP’s under her belt, Kelli Schaefer’s latest record is another pivot in stylistic choice. This time, with a fresh take on the age-old singer-songwriter trope, her yet-untitled record (expected 2023) delivers haunting melodies over swirling woodwinds, mellotron, piano, classical guitar, and upright bass. These songs could be the soundtrack to a modern gothic, a playlist for a trudge through the forest, the accompaniment to a subconscious mantra. As expected, Schaefer again demonstrates her refusal to confine herself to a single genre. Along with her bandmates Andrew Jones (bass), Ayal Alves (piano, keys), Joey Binhammer (guitar), Kelli Schaefer is working to finish the record and planning tour steadily once it is released in 2023.
