Sunny Lowdown sings blues for the 21st century, and this second release is chock full of hard times and the humor required to get through them. Backing himself up with fine, muscular guitar picking, Sunny continues the tradition he began with his critically acclaimed first CD, “The Blues Volume Low”, which was selected as “Blues CD Of The Year” by Spokane Public Radio. Down Loaded contains 7 tracks penned by Sunny, and five tracks of traditional tunes reaching back to bluesmen like Li’l Son Jackson, J.B. Lenoir and Lightnin’ Hopkins. It is soulful, heartfelt blues, the kind of blues that takes its time and says only what needs to be said — not a word or note more.
“Every song on ‘Down Loaded’ demands attention by way of striking solo performances…Drive, spirit, spookiness—all the elements are here.”– Elmore Magazine
