SUN CUTTER – THE GEORGE HOTEL – SATURDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER – 5:30 PM
Sun Cutter, real name Kevin Pearce, hails from Colchester. Three years ago, Kevin suffered a heart attack (on a golf course). As well as having to redress some lifestyle habits, his rehabilitation involved writing and recording the Sun Cutter project. It is an album of beautiful driving, harmony-drenched indie-soul and folk-rock that looks to the light for reflection. Co-produced with Dean Honer (The Moonlandingz, Eccentronic Research Council, Pins), it is at time reminiscent of some purveyors of classic songwriting, such as Tim Buckley, John Lennon, Cat Stevens, albeit with a modern do over.
Previously he has released (under his real name) the album “Matthew Hopkins & The Wormhole”, a concept record about the Witchfinder General who lived in the same village (Mistley in Essex). He was also the vocalist and guitarist on I Monster‘s “Daydream in Blue”, recently resurrected to advertise Magnum ice creams on the telly.
