About our guest artist: Sunny

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.

Sunny Lowdown was only sixteen when he played his first professional gig backing John Lee Hooker.  He has since worked 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.  Before acquiring the nickname “Sunny Lowdown,” Sunny had achieved renown as Louie X. Erlanger, guitarist for the group Mink DeVille, during which time Mick Jagger had called him one of his favorite guitarists.  His guitar playing can be heard in many feature films, including “Breathless,” “Pope of Greenwich Village,” “In The Land of Women,” “Blue Collar” and the recent popular Showtime TV series “Billions.”
