An energetic sound that works in an addicting way. Party animals will get an itch, unable to resist the legs start dancing, the dust rising from the dancefloor, hazing those present. Whoever doesn’t get a kick out of this is brain dead. Folk Magazine (BE), Patrick Clerens, album Sinners’Town
Sunfire bring us a really exciting, raw, swinging CD. An album of international class. Blues magazine 2019 (NL), Peter Marinus, album Sinners’Town
A wonderful – and wonderfully achieved – mix of bluegrass, folk, country and rock, which occasionally possesses a kind of centrifugal intensity. The quiet parts are also hard to spurn.The Netherlands’ best kept secret? This second album by the quintet Sunfire showed up quietly, even though it blows the competition in any genre out of the water when it comes to originality and inventiveness.
Rating: 5 stars out of 5
Lust for Life 2019 (NL), Chris van Oostrom, Album Sinners’Town 2019
Sunfire is a band that are at the brink of an international break through. This CD is just as good as their live shows. So anyone who has seen Sunfire perform live and loved it, you can buy this album blind. You won’t be disappointed. CeltCast radio (NL), Cliff de Booij, album Sinners’Town 2019
The songs are loosely based around a Wild West theme and the hard times and sorrowful lives that inhabit the occupants of the mythical Sinner’s Town. Throughout, there is an energy and vibrancy in the playing. Engaging and something here for every taste. Lonesome Highway 2019 (IE), Review by Paul McGee, Album Sinners’Town 2019
