Sonny Knight & The Lakers | I’m Still Here
In honor of Black History Month, we’re revisiting a 2014 album from the late Minnesota musician Sonny Knight.
Saint Paul native Knight was an artist who, among other things, helped revive classic soul in a Midwest city known for its funky rhythm and ‘80s icons. His background ranged from a gospel –filled childhood to seeing the world, fighting in Vietnam and later touring with his band The Lakers. Sonny brings a very cultured and honest take and blends genres, allowing music to flow from the soul.
