personal message

SonnyBoy is a song writer, composer, arranger and producer of a unique and creative live-band sound that challenges the existing technology enhanced sound of today's music. Raised between Monroe, LA and Milwaukee Wi, Shel Riser, was given the nick name SonnyBoy, learning to play multiple instruments in the more Gospel/R&B tradition he found him self working with Funk, Reggae, Hip hop and Rock Bands. Inspired by his Uncle Blues singer, "Sonny Green", a well known musician from Louisiana, SonnyBoy also explored music of the blues tradition. Moving to Minneapolis, MN with only his guitar and the clothes on his back, he threw himself fully into exploring Funk, Reggae, Rock and Hip Hop, prevalent in the "Paisley" music scene. After a few months busking on the streets of downtown Minneapolis, SonnyBoy quickly earned a reputation as an exceptional musician which paved the way for his acceptance into the Minneapolis music scene. He began working with artists under the Paisley Park label including Parliament-Funkadelic, Spearhead and countless other artists. SonnyBoy has also shared the stage with The Black Crowes, The Skatalights and performed at venues as prestige's as the world famous Paisley Park Studios. The pinnacle of his Minneapolis success was being named in Rolling Stone Magazine, as one of the best unsigned bands in Minneapolis. With this endorsement, Sonnyboy moved to New York and his perseverance, talent and NY exposure earned him an appearance on BET's J list, TV ones 'Get the Hook Up' and countless performances throughout the US and Europe. SonnyBoy has released four albums under his own label, ArtSoul Entertainment, and co-produces his own music videos.
