Sunroom

For the past five years, Sunroom has steadily plotted a their course. The trio have formed a strong personal and musical bond touring and living in each others pockets, focused on achieving “Sunroom”, their self titled debut album. Sunroom set about formulating a plan of playing ‘stripped back’ acoustic shows to raise the funds needed to pay for the debut themselves. While these shows included some cover tunes, 80% of the set was pre-production for what you hear today. This DIY approach proved healthy in that the band was constantly playing and exposing their tunes to new audiences. In the short term, Sunroom achieved some impressive goals for a truly independent act: • A spot on the “Taste of Chaos” tour at the Acer arena in front of 10,000 lunatics in 2006. • Their music used in Peter Crumpton’s surf film “The Sketch”, • The tune “Tonight” used in the Hot Buttered film “Soul” for the theatrical trailer, which is now seeing major release internationally on DVD. • The songs “Tonight” and “Circus” being used on the cover mount CD with Freeride dirt bike magazine. • The songs “Brand New Start” and “Stop sign” being used in a Foxtel ASP world surfing tour show. • Juz and Pete won the Narrabeen Sands “Busking by the Beach” competition competing against acts from all over NSW, and the Rydges Wollongong Songwriters contest earning themselves a spot on a sold out night with Mark Seymour from Hunters and Collectors. As a result of these wins, the band invested in their own P.A system and set about getting residencies at The Rydges Hotel in Wollongong, The Sands Hotel in Narrabeen, The Royal Cricketers Arms in Blacktown, The Bateau Bay Hotel, Perisher Blue in NSW ski fields and the Newport Arms. The band has joked that they would call the album “$500 bucks a throw” as this is how it was done. They would earn some money, book the studio time and 16 months later you have the debut album, “Sunroom”.
