Bernhoft, Sun Rai

When: Sat., June 22, 9 p.m. 2013

There's something strangely likeable about Sun Rai's music. His infectiously poppy riffs could almost be placed in the same genre of lamer, more aggravating artists like Jason Mraz or Maroon 5, but his musicianship and the catchiness of his songs keep me interested. Once the frontman for the popular Australian band Thirsty Merc, Sun Rai has now broken off to pursue a solo career in Los Angeles. His voice and elegant piano skills make him almost sound like Adam Levine's more mature Australian cousin. One of his signature moves is playing on two keyboards at once, somehow seeing through his mop of bramble-bushy hair. Even if Rai's style of music has its cheesy, pop-infused moments, he's undeniably talented and will get you dancing, or at least inspire a strong head bob. ROSE FINN
