Western Folk – a powerful mix of Folk, Americana, Bluegrass, Country and Rock The dynamic and energetic sound of Sunfire draws from various influences including americana, folk, country, bluegrass, rock and roots.
Their alternative sound contrasted with good old Americana and demonstrated a rock influence, creating an original and niche voice in the music industry.
Expect raw vocals, enthralling tales, and irresistible rhythms and melodies. The band gives excellent performances on any stage, winning the hearts of organizers, the press and, most importantly, the audience. In the past years they rocked more than 150 stages in Europe in both the alternative and mainstream music scene.
Think ‘The Bridge City Sinners’, ‘The Dead South’ and ‘Mumford & Sons’.
Their classic line-up is Satria Karsono (lead vocals, banjo, guitar), Sophie Zaaijer (violin, vocals), Berend de Vries (guitar, vocals), Jeroen van Leeuwen (drums, vocals) and Michel Beeckman (bass, vocals).
