Description

The Blues Volume Low is Sunny’s first solo release,  a mixture of traditional blues tunes and tunes he has written himself.  “I always liked the singers who could sit with just their guitar and tell you a story,” he says. “Whether they had written the song or not, they made it their story.”  The Blues Volume Low is Sunny’s story.  Ten tracks with just Sunny and his electric or acoustic guitar, augmented by three tracks with his trio — Sunny Bottom on bass, Sunny Tubs on drums.  Rhythmic, and powerful, you won’t find many of Sunny’s chords in guitar books.  “My music starts raw, and then I cook it up,” he says. “But I never overcook it.”

“Sunny has a great sound. One of the best new CDs I’ve listened to in a number of years.” Frank Delaney, Spokane Public Radio
