All Day Sucker (their name comes from a Stevie Wonder song) may be somewhat new to the music scene, having just released their second CD that’s brimming with heady, street-smart yet refreshingly sweet, sophisticated melodic rock. What gives their instantly memorable hooks a soulful resonance are sharp musicianship and a grounded lyrical sense that illuminates mature, authentic feelings.
This isn’t a group conceived in a flash-in-the pan marketing plan, or thrown together to appeal to someone’s idea of a target demographic. Core members singer Morty Coyle and keyboardist Jordan Summers started playing together in high school, fronting bands that cut its teeth in jazz, as well as pop, R&B, new wave and blues classics. While recording original material, they became an underground sensation, performing those jaw-dropping covers at Canter’s Kibbutz room open jam in Hollywood.
