About

Sunday Songs is the latest vocal album from Jonas Sjøvaag. It features a series of songs based on lyrics written in Florence in the spring of 2019, under a scorching sun on a rooftop in the eastern part of the city; the music followed during the autumn. The album is Sjøvaag’s 13th release under his own name.

Sunday Songs was inspired by some of the great performers of piano-driven pop – Billy Joel, Randy Newman and Randy Goodrum come to mind – but it was also shaped by Sjøvaag’s background as a jazz musician. Sunday Songs is a melodic, heartfelt and beautiful album, with a timeless essence and lyrics with a melancholy tinge.
