Album Notes

“Every time I listen to this album I like it even more. It’s a real sleeper … you have to seek it out.” - Rhythm Highways, KDHX St. Louis

"The absolute best of them can make the blues fresh and engaging every time, for anyone. Sunny Lowdown does that...Calls to mind the quality and tone of some of the best old Texas and Mississippi blues pickers... Drive, spirit, spookiness – all the elements are here" – Elmore Magazine

"This one is made for listeners who relish real, traditional blues, served up by an artist who has learned from some of the greats."
– Blues Blast Magazine

"Sunny plays lovely guitar…you can see Sunny playing on street corners in your mind’s eye."
– Blues Matters Magazine

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. After seven years recording and touring with Mink DeVille and sharing stages with Patti Smith, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello, The Cars, Blondie, Talking Heads and others, Sunny went back to his roots (Sunny's first professional gig had been at the age of sixteen backing up John Lee Hooker) and proceeded to work with many of his favorite blues and R&B artists, including Otis Rush, CeDell Davis, Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Big Jay McNeeley, Wild Child Butler and more. He also toured with and produced recordings by Mississippi Hill Country blues singer R.L. Burnside, one of which was nominated for a W.C. Handy award.

In 2005 Sunny started working with his own four piece group under the monicker Sunny Lowdown, while also playing solo electric country blues at clubs, farmers markets and house parties around New England. His first release under the name Sunny Lowdown, "The Blues Volume Low", received great reviews and was selected as "Blues CD Of The Year" by Spokane Public Radio. It led to a more active touring schedule for Sunny.

On "Down Loaded", backing himself up with fine, muscular picking, Sunny continues the tradition he began with his critically acclaimed first CD. Down Loaded contains seven tracks penned by Sunny, and five tracks penned by some of his favorite blues singers, including Li'l Son Jackson, J.B. Lenoir, and Lightnin' Hopkins. Sunny's tunes range from "Texting Blues", about a couple who can't sustain a conversation, to the aching longing of "A Girl I Once Knew", to the toe tapping swing of the instrumental "That's Enough". It is soulful, heartfelt blues that one doesn't hear too often these days, the kind of blues that takes its time and only says what needs to be said -- not a word or note more.
