Sunny and her band will play a pre-show set every performance. And, as well as playing the role of Balthasar in Much Ado About Nothing, Sunny and her partner Don Robinson composed all of the original music for this production.
Evocative, distinctive and nuanced, Sunny Amoreena’s songs cut like a knife. Refreshingly unafraid to explore deep vulnerability, her gift for articulating the personal is compelling and immensely up-lifting.
Describing music as her lifeline while overcoming a childhood accident and its aftermath of illness and isolation, Amoreena’s writing comes from a truly unique perspective.
Sunny’s debut album, “Check for Wolves” was released in 2014, recorded in Sydney and Los Angeles with musical partner Don Miller Robinson and American musical luminaries Van Dyke Parks, Patrick Warren, David Piltch and Greg Leisz.
International Independent Music Awards finalist for Best Adult Contemporary Album.
