Sunshine Nights was born one fine day in Manhattan's East Village when Amy sang a song and Stephen played her guitar. They quickly realized that making music together was fun and sounded pretty cool, so they started writing songs together. After they moved to Bushwick, Brooklyn, Amy picked up the bass and Stephen the lap steel. Since then they've performed in NYC, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, Montréal, New Orleans, Austin, Nashville, NC, SC, and Mysore, India.
Starting with an indie folk sound Sunshine Nights quickly expanded to traditional jazz, blues and Americana. Their first full-length self-produced debut CD “Down and Up Blues” is a musical time capsule of songs and experiences from 2009-2013. Sunshine Nights returned to the studio this past September 2014 to record with their 7 piece live Brooklyn band, The Knights. Tracked mostly live, this self titled CD is the result of 7 friends together in one room playing music they love. It was recorded at Virtue and Vice Studios in Brooklyn, NY by Anthony “Rocky” Gallo.
