Our quick chat with Sonny, from Sonny And The sunsets
NT: Longtime Companion seemed like a pretty tough record to make, can you tell me a bit about it?
SS: Nah it came out real easily. Just met with some country music friends and recorded in their basement. it just flowed out over a year or so…
NT: You think it might be difficult playing the songs on a nightly basis?
SS: You mean cause their about love and break-ups and stuff? Nah, it’s easy. it’s the crap that doesn’t mean anything that’s hard to sing every night.
NT: Can we expect the same band for this tour?
SS: Nah, I have some friends from Catalonia and Basque playing. And a few of the reg sunsets. Conjoining them into one awesome beast.
NT: Do you get as much satisfaction writing songs, as much as short stories or one act-act plays?
SS: Yeah, it’s all about the same satisfaction, which goes by quick, which is why you gotta keep writing them.
NT: I wanted to ask you about the 100 Records Project, how did you this all come together? Was it hard finding so many artists?
SS: Nah, it was easy, the world is full of artists. In fact, there’s too many. Every dingus on the street is an artist. — I’m just playin. It was easy though. Artists are everywhere.
NT: What did you think of the cartoon review Aaron Farmer did of your show with Papercuts?
SS: Sorta like seeing yourself in a Scooby doo episode.
NT: I saw on your website that you were approached to play a fan’s wedding (Sofia) did this ever materialize?
SS: She broke up with him.
