Sunday Valley is fronted by South-Eastern Kentucky native, Sturgill Simpson. His pure tenor has brought comparisons to noteworthy artists from the same region such as Ralph Stanley, Roscoe Holcomb, Keith Whitley, and his own distant relative, Dock Boggs. As a songwriter, Simpson rides the razor’s edge in terms of raw vulnerability. The deceptively simple nature of his lyrical imagery harkens back to a period when country music was simple, honest, and unaffected. Simpson plays forcefully, bringing the controlled intensity usually associated with traditional mountain music to the electric guitar. The “high, loud, & lonesome” Sunday Valley sound is rounded out by a sturdy, intimidating, and highly conditioned rhythm section, bassist & backing vocalist Gerald Evans, and drummer Edgar Purdom. Their innovative, Bluegrass inspired sound paired with a reputation for exhaustive live shows quickly earned them the honor of being voted “The Best Band in Kentucky”.
