LISTENING POST: Sonny Boy — "She Like Rock 'n' Roll" (free download)

New funk, rock and soul from Shel Riser, better known to the world as Sonnyboy.


Just getting through an initial pass of The Barfly Theory, the recent release by Sonnyboy (nee Shel Riser). First impressions: Solid, soulful funk rock. Comparisons, at least visually, to Maxwell back in the day are unavoidable, but where Maxwell always seemed to be in seduction mode, Shel leads with high energy, rock edginess.

Check out the song.  If you like it, download it. Sorry, the download is no longer available
