Sunny Lowdown’s first release was entitled “The Blues, Volume Low”, and that remains his approach to the blues on this latest release, “Shady Deal”, a followup to his Blues Blast Music Award nominated “Down Loaded”. He takes his time, and doesn’t hit you over the head. His power is in his tone and phrasing. You might call it a Clint Eastwood approach. No screaming – just a quiet “make my day” that send chills up your spine. From his swampy reworking of The Rolling Stones‘ “Satisfaction” to his stark “Christmas Eve Blues”, to the romantic “Tried And True” and the hilarious whims of “Clip On Man Bun Blues”, to the wild textures of “Chicken In A Basket” performed with The Uptown Food Syndicate, Sunny is his own man, giving you his own take on a world we all struggle with day to day. Sometimes it’s a celebration. Often it’s a shady deal.
“This utter badass has a wonderful under the radar record here that’s sure to fly high in the long run. A thorough original, every move this cat makes is going to grab you. Killer stuff.“ – The Midwest Record
