"Runnin' That Shine" just finished recording up in Mt. Airy with Wesley Easter (Eastwood Studio) and Kennith Berrier (Summer Wages) pickin' dobro. "Season's Of Change" is a track thats just out now as well and gaining strong popularity on the folk scene around NC. "Flying Free" is a track about a daydream!... & gets constant requests at shows. Sunmile recently did a podcast @ 600Southcast in Winston Salem. The podcast has had great reviews & expresses the band as raw as it can.



Sunmile was formed in 2007 by singer songwriter David Ray Cecil and David Hinkle.

David Ray Cecil has done several albums during his career. While living in Scotland he recorded a record and was on the BBC in London before meeting David Hinkle back here in the States.
David Hinkle grew up singing in church and playing in bands up and down the east coast of America. He had become a well sought after singer and performer before meeting Cecil.
The two together have a sound unlike anything around. The soultry sound of Hinkle's voice with the style and lyrics of Cecil's songs makes for an unusual sound and the two voices together is a match made in heaven as they say.
Rod Betini soon came on board as a percussionist and is the most sensitive drummer to the music. Playing exactly what the songs are asking for is his real gift. He brought Mike Sink Along who has an unbeleivable gift for melody and style in his guitar playing. Mike and Rod had met in a previous band and were already "in the pocket" as far as there style together.
Mike Hamilton is the bass man in the band and holds them all together. He has played in bands throughout his life and has a knack for playing sensible riff's to accentuate the tunes.
Sunmile is dedicated to creating it's own sound and working and reworking songs until they are just right. They are a band with great diversity and dynamics and the shows reflect there passion for being different. But these are all just words... if you take a peak at the music you'll feel it.
