Sunsinger, aka Simon Gutteridge, is a songwriter from Bedfordshire, based in good old Bedford town. Expect alt-country, folk and Americana tinged songs with a hint of pop, and tunes packed full of catchy melodies and soaring choruses.
A disciple of Dylan, a believer of Buckley, and, fast running out of alliterations, a general fan of folk, his only aim is to lightly drizzle pleasant melodies unto your ears serving up foot-tapping ditties and wistful laments.
Influences include Ryan Adams, Elbow, Nick Drake, Beirut, Elliott Smith, the Decemberists, Gram Parsons, REM & Josh Ritter to name a few.
Working towards his first proper release under the Sunsinger name (the first ep being under his old name Kid Charlemagne) recent support highlights include Wolf People and Ian McCulloch of Echo & the Bunnymen at Bedford Corn Exchange. Currently recording, he hopes to have the first Sunsinger E.P out next year.
