Sonny Winnebago & Lemonade

Lemonade?

No thanks, I’ll have a coffee, please.

No, no, no. Lemonade is a song that you should give a listen.

Oops!

Sonny Winnebago.

It’s a bit cloudy actually, and I prefer staying in hotels.

No, no, no. Sonny Winnebago is the stage name of Welsh-Australian pop troubadour Harvey Jones.

Harvey who?

Harvey Jones, remember that name because I think you will hear more from him.

I wish it were summer so we could drink Lemonade.

It is summer in Australia, and good music sounds good anywhere, anytime.

Harvey tells us: “Everyone’s got good memories of picking up a recorder or triangle in school, so we used lots of instruments. Davey brought along some shakers; there’s also a ukulele, woodblock, kazoos & a kalimba. My school instrument was the flute, so we put that in too.”

 “I was walking to my job as a barista one sunny day in North London and saw some little go-getters selling Lemonade outside their house. I thought that was really cool and reminded me of when I used to make Lemonade from a lemon tree we had in the back garden. Anyway, I had a charity shop acoustic that I kept upstairs at work & I wrote the song on my break that day. Some songs take weeks, months and even years to write, but Lemonade only took a few hours. I think that’s how you know it’s a good tune – just totally uninhibited, like the song was already in me somewhere, or in the air that day! In terms of its lyrics and meaning, there’s not really much to analyze, haha. There’s a nice Gremlins reference in the first verse which makes me happy. In terms of production, with the help of wonderful producer Charlie Francis, and awesome session musicians Davey Newington (Boy Azooga) and Matt Evans (KEYS), we achieved this cool ‘classroom’ sound. Everyone’s got good memories of picking up a recorder or triangle in school, so we put in loads of fun instruments. Davey brought along some shakers, so we used all of them. There’s also a ukulele, woodblock, kazoos & a kalimba that Charlie keeps on his desk for good measure! My school instrument was the flute, so we put that in too! If you listen closely, you can even hear a kitchen sink. Enjoy!

Lemonade is available to stream now, with Phwoar & Peace.
