Sonnyboy: The BarFly Theory CD Release
The offical launch of Sonnyboy's new album 'The Barfly Theory'!
"...one of the best unsigned bands to come out of Minneapolis since Prince and The Time"
-Rolling Stone Magazine
The BarFly Theory is the fifth independent album written, composed, produced, and performed by acclaimed artist Sonnyboy (ArtSoul Entertainment). His latest work is thirteen tracks of “Rock N’ Soul mixed with some good old funk.”
Taken in total, Sonnyboy’s musical genius reveals a mastery of soul, funk, rock, and hip hop. The listener might recall just a few great artists whose talents Sonnyboy respects: Sly & The Family Stone, Prince, The Isley Brothers, Jamiroquai, Erykah Badu, Maroon 5, and Cee-Lo.
Born in Monroe, Louisiana and raised in the Baptist churches of Milwaukee, Sonnyboy came of age musically in Minneapolis. There, he earned a reputation as an exceptional musician and quickly began working with artists on Prince’s Paisley Park label, the Parliament Funkadelic family, Mary Harris of Spearhead, and countless other artists. Rolling Stone Magazine claimed the group as "...one of the best unsigned bands to come out of Minneapolis since Prince and The Time."
His live performances have been dubbed as “high energy FishBone meets James Brown” shows. For his official release, the audience will get more than an hour raw musicianship, blended with an urban misfit approach to good music.
