Sonny Boy Thorn

 

Version 3

Introducing Sonny Boy Thorn, a new project by guitarist-songwriter-producer Christopher Thorn of the multi-platinum Blind Melon and vocalist-songwriter Davie Dennis of the dearly departed LA indie-rock band Voxhaul Broadcast.Christopher and Davie met at a radio station a few years ago and immediately struck up a friendship. Shortly after that Christopher produced a Voxhaul Broadcast EP. “I felt lucky to be able to work with them.” says Thorn, “I thought Davie was one of the best singer-songwriters in Los Angeles.”

Thorn went on to co-produce AWOLNATION’s ubiquitous hit “Sail” and toured with them on guitar. He also produced albums for Chuck Ragan and Gateway Drugs at his Silverlake studio Firesidesound. Thorn and Dennis started writing and recording songs between their respective projects. When Thorn left AWOLNATION and Voxhaul Broadcast disbanded their new project, now called Sonny Boy Thorn, became a priority.

Christopher and Davie spent the next 6 months writing and recording with friends. These recordings eventually turned into a full length album. Players include top notch artists Frank DiVanna (Trashcan Sinatras), Hayden Scott (AWOLNATION), Matt Flynn (Maroon 5) Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters, The Wallflowers), Glen Graham (Blind Melon) and the legendary Jim Keltner.

Sonny Boy Thorn’s next creative outlet was a beautifully crafted video for Wild and Free – set in Joshua Tree with the desert light and ​party​ atmosphere captured by director Gus Black.
