BIG NEWS! There are now NINE new songs written for the second Sun King Rising album! Of course, they are in in various degrees of completion, but there is some really good music happening! Six of the songs were written by John Blangero, one by Steve Schuffert, and two co-written by John and his producer/friend, Ace Acker. If what I have heard is any indication, you are all in for a real treat!!!
This summer, Ace will be working in his studio in Avalon, PA on the production of demos, and also at David Granati’s Maplewood Studio in Ambridge to track drums with George Perilli. George is the longtime drummer for Michael McDonald of Doobie Brothers fame and has also played with such greats as Reba McEntire and Donna Summer. And then there’s Steve Schuffert, the man behind the screaming guitar solo in “Beneath the Southern Sun.” Steve is an extraordinary guitar player and an accomplished Nashville songwriter whose songs have been recorded by legendary artists.
Keep watching The Lowdown for progress updates on the new record, as well as some insight into those who make the magic happen. If all goes well, maybe SKR will play a few shows out on the road! (Raise your hand if you can’t wait for live music to return!)

May the sun rise forever over you, With Love from Karyn.
