NYC Breakout Band: Sunflower Bean

There are a billion and something bands from New York, but the group joining us today are poised to be breakout stars. They're called Sunflower Bean and their sophomore album Twentytwo In Blue incorporates the band's love of 70's British glam rock like T. Rex and Slade. Sunflower Bean is a three-piece featuring singer/bassist Julia Cumming, guitarist/vocalist Nick Kivlen and drummer Jacob Faber. The band performs live and tells us what it's like to be a young, working musician. Did we mention that they're all 22 years old?
