Bio

Brisbane based Alt-pop/Hiphop band, Cinnamon Sun, ooze a comforting conscious vibe that will have you transported to a Tahitian bar under the orange setting sun, with all worries lost.

Fronted by the grounded and forever chilled Davy Simony, his years of touring the globe and recording his solo roots project shine through in this new adventure with thought evoking songwriting and relaxed delivery. The rest of the band include Jimmy Harwood, Chaddy B, Harrison Brown and Hugo Lee.
The group is a multi-skilled melting pot of talent, with its members able to switch between guitars, vocals, keyboards, percussion and saxophone. Collectively they’ve toured Australia, America, Europe and Japan; Showcased at Bluesfest, Tablelands Folk Festival, Kuranda Roots, Wallaby Creek Festival, St Kilda Festival and Real Rock-Reggae Festival (Japan) and supported world class acts Tash Sultana, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Daryl Braithwaite.

Cinnamon Sun is the new kid on the block, standing sonically alongside the likes of Ocean Alley and Dope Lemon with their distant electric guitar riffs and 80’s vintage style keys that hold the space so delicately for rich Saxophone to float through your mind. Davy wraps you in his warm, gold drenched vocals, flowing effortlessly between smooth singing and laid back rap, leaving a nostalgic note in the ear of the late Mac Miller.

No strangers to touring and the Australian festival circuit, Cinnamon Sun will be hitting the road throughout 2021 for the release of their debut single, ‘If You Call’. With premiers from Triple J and an ever growing fan base, intimate shows will be a distant memory that you will want to hold close to your heart.

“There is plenty of love in Australia for the chilled-out vibe. Look no further than the popularity of Ocean Alley. I can see some of the love which goes their way also being replicated onto the charms of Cinnamon Sun.” The AuReview

"Armed with a voice that blends raw strength with melted butter, Davy brings a sharp warmth to his heartfelt lyrics and soothing tone.” – Tiana Speter (The Soundcheck)

Like drifting off into your own imagination, Cinnamon Sun is the kick-off into a blissful existence. Understatedly poetic and great, you can't go wrong with these cats.
