SonnyBoy combines the key elements of black music over the last 50 years: from bebop to hip-hop, jazz to pop, mixed with a heavy dose of pure soul and layered with some very funk-driven rock'n'roll. The Barfly Theory has a more contemporary twist on the soulful sounds of previous SonnyBoy efforts and expresses messages of love, hate and empowerment, coupled with that ever prevalent Sonnyboy sense of humor!
Preview this track from the album: a little "Hey Ya" energy and some Cee-Lo vocal stylings make "Shake That Thing" one of those rare songs that crosses over from rock to hip-hop and back.
