About Sauni's Big Jump
Sauni's Big Jump began when high school friends Daryl Holmlund and Nick Tempel, of Loveland, CO, started playing open-mic shows in spring of 2007. The guitarists soon added violinist Elle Price and percussionist Jon Brummet to the line-up and started playing shows in coffee houses throughout northern Colorado. Having put together some great songs and arrangements, the group decided it was time to get their music down on tape (or in bytes). Working with fellow Lovelander Don Mattson and a utilizing a host of friends as guest vocalists and musicians, the resulting album, Anything Could Happen, is a unique musical delight. The sound ranges from bluegrass to alt rock and from country pop to acoustic trance – with one constant: Addictive melodies and attention-demanding lyrics. On Anything Could Happen, Holmlund – the group’s primary songwriter - gives the listener room to complain or question on songs like Mystery and Day Off, but also points towards a more proactive and positive way of thinking on numbers like Anything Could Happen, Where We Left Off, and the lilting, make-you-want-to-jig Hospital Song.
