Sundy Best (Kentucky natives Kris Bentley and Nick Jamerson) bring a fresh acoustic sound on their latest single, “Until I Met You“. Recorded using cajon, no drums or cymbals, their music is bluegrass and country influenced by ‘70s rock.
“We set out to do this. We write our songs, play and sing; it’s what we’ve done, it’s what we’ll do. We want to create something that will stand the test of time, like Seger or the Eagles. We don’t really have a standard genre. If people want to call us country, let them. But with Bring Up the Sun, you’ll get a really good sense of what we’re doing in our style of country music, and it’s got ‘70s classic rock sounds, with a little pop, rock, and bluegrass.”
From Kentucky to Nashville, their social media fans have started the ‘kinfolk movement’ (Kris and Nick consider their fans part of their family). The childhood friends played on the Grand Ole Opry stage for the first time on Feb. 10.
“Everything we’ve written is a true story. We are who we say we are. Our music is the real thing; it’s autobiography. We’re not trying to fit into a category or write the generic pickups-and-sweet-tea songs. Our music is real, it’s honest, and we’re trying to make something that’s relevant and influence others.”
“Until I Met You” is on their just released second album “Bring Up The Sun” on eOne Music.
