Songwriter/composer J.E. Sunde writes beautifully unusual music. A classically trained musician from the university in Eau Claire, WI, and with a love of songwriters and performers like Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone, and Paul Simon, Jon writes densely poetic songs with a bent toward the philosophical.
Also, his voice sounds like some sort of weird angel.
"[J.E. Sunde] should make Sufjan Stevens fans cry with joy and delight the lovers of Still Crazy After All These Years."
-Soul Kitchen
"J.E. Sunde is one of the greatest indie-folk singer-songwriters around."
"One can bet [J.E. Sunde] will age like a Will Oldham good vintage."
"[I Will Smile When I Think Of You] began as a fight against melancholy and ends up in a surpassing place — it also speaks to the notion of knowing when a good idea has turned into a great one."
-Bob Boilen, NPR All Songs Considered
"A mine of melody."
- Flood Magazine
