Album Notes
After eight years of words and music geared to challenge the insanity of war, corporate greed, the withering of civil rights and the environment – Sonny Meadows is back with songs and stories of everyday life, family, relationships, and influential heroes. With whimsical dark humor and diverse musical styles, Sonny paints rich visual imagery and creates characters pleading for understanding and Tolerance!

What the press has to say about Sonny Meadows:

"Mr. Meadows has an inventive sense of rhythm and melody that runs the sonic gamut from Kurt Weil to Southern chain gangs, along with hooky choruses featuring female vocalists that seep deep into the psyche..." Robbie Woliver - New York Times

"Meadows is rightly famous in our area for his wry political and social commentary...he can skewer the absurd and pretentious, but also has a gentle and generous side."
Amy Tuttle - Folk Music Society of Huntington

"Any stories of injustice are fodder for Meadows' poetry put to music. Meadows is a voice for the oppressed, the victims of political irony you hear about everyday on the news...the homeless, the hardworking immigrants, ethnic minorities and the oblivious everyday Americans who are being oppressed and they don't even realize it!" - Liz Smith, The Nightguide

"A modern day troubadour." The Island Ear

"Meadows shines from song to song with an honest lyrical approach that blends humor, hard life tales, and human condition songs." Steven J. Francis - Long Island Entertainment

"His sense of humor and a clever, clever mind has provided him with both a wealth of great songs and a growing number of fans." Roy Abrams, Musicians' Exchange

"Long Island's most creatively topical songwriter." The Inside Connection

"Meadows has developed an underground cult status among musicians and plain folk alike." The Island Ear

"Through haunting lyrics and even more compelling vocalization, Meadows brought home forcefully the message and meaning of the evening." George Wallace, The Long Islander

"Muckraking Folksinger" Isaac Guzman - Newsday

"...an immensely talented auteur/performer." Long Island Voice

"If anyone can express our time musically it's Long Island, NY's Sonny Meadows." Liz Smith, The Nightguide

"One of L.I.'s most incredible songwriters." Michael Clarke, ISS Newsletter
