Sunny Leunig

On a bad day: Sunny was born to two disappointed parents, was an average student, always finished fourth in high school sports, and currently lives alone in Melbourne.

On a good day: Sunny is a successful musician, film director, composer and TV presenter and also the son of Michael Leunig, one of Australia’s most famous artists. He has written and directed music videos for some of biggest names in Australian music including Paul Kelly and Courtney Barnett; composed and performed music for feature-length films including In Bob We Trust, a documentary about Father Bob Maguire; is guitarist for the popular alt-rock band Jimmy Tait and composer for The Wintership Quartet.

As a Magosopher, a rare crossbreed of magician and philosopher (that he made up himself), Sunny has performed at major festivals and also for former Prime Minister Bob Hawke and rock band U2.
