Biography

Sunny 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. Some critics have described Sunny’s music as “swamp music”, but Sunny shuns labels. “I’m just me -- Sunny Lowdown, ” he says. "If you want to categorize it, call it 'Sunny Side Up'." Sunny started playing professionally at an early age. He was only sixteen when he first backed up 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. “I like my music raw, and then I cook it up,” he says. “But I never over cook it."
