Cinnamon Sun (FKA Davy Simony) is a Brisbane based folk-roots singer-songwriter hailing from Kuranda in Far North Queensland. With influences that span from Angus & Julia Stone to Fat Freddy’s Drop, his work is defined by his grounded and heartfelt style of songwriting. His live performances are not to be missed: boasting the powerful energy of a ‘one-man-band,’ Simony takes to guitar, foot percussion and live looping.
A true prodigy, Davy began playing music at just eight years old. By fifteen he was writing his own songs and busking on the streets of several nearby towns. After moving to Melbourne his music career skyrocketed: Touring nationally and internationally, playing festival shows and opening for acts such as Tash Sultana and Daryl Braithwaite; but still to this day you can find him busking on the street.
“I feel like I will always come back to busking. It grounds me and humbles me, and at the same time makes me work harder and improves my skills- you have to catch the attention of people walking by- draw them in, captivate them. That’s why I love busking and that’s why I think it’s the best practice you can get.”
Davy has released 3 EPs under his own name and one single under the new name, Cinnamon Sun. With a strong following across Australia and regular spins on Triple J, the future looks promising for this young artist!
“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” - Nkechi Anele (Triple J)
