Big Waves and Bonfires

The Americana rock band Big Waves and Bonfires released its first full-length album, Belly of the Whale, late last year. Karl Sundquist was a solo acoustic troubadour for two decades when the decision was made to “supersize me” three years ago, adding guitar from Dan Boyer, drums from Sam Papin, bass from Josh Palmi and violin from Jill Burkes. The songs Sundquist constructed over the years for solo play included roles for other musicians, and now the sound is complete. “It’s a ‘who’s who’ of area original musicians,” Sundquist said. “It became obvious that the combination was going to work.”
