No Cover "A thorough original, every move this cat makes is going to grab you. Killer stuff.” – The Midwest RecordSunny Lowdown Music:::Deep bluesSunny Lowdown plays the raw, deep blues, drawing from the music of John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Jesse Mae Hemphill and R.L. Burnside. Critics have described Sunny’s music as “swamp music”, but Sunny shuns labels. “I’m just me,” he says. “I call it Sunny side up.” Sunny was only sixteen when he first backed up bluesman John Lee Hooker. He went on to work with many of his favorite blues musicians: Howlin’ Wolf guitarist Hubert Sumlin, Muddy Waters pianist Pinetop Perkins, Chicago blues legends Otis Rush and George “Wild Child” Butler, Fat Possum recording artists R.L. Burnside and Cedell Davis, and others.Sunny performs solo on electric and acoustic guitar, or with his trio consisting of Sunny Bottom on bass and Sunny Tubs on drums. Sunny Keys often joins them on keyboards, along with Sunny The Lip on trumpet. "Don't start looking for my chords in guitar books," says Sunny. "because I play raw. I like to cook it up a bit, but I never overcook it."
