Release Date:06/16/2017;Notes:Favorite Recordings present Time To Decide, the first album by Al Sunny. Al Sunny is a young composer emerging from the French soul music scene. Soon after learning the guitar, he started composing and became involved in numerous projects and collaborations. Al has been influenced by pop, rock, and electronic music, always with a foundation in the "Black" and "Soul" sound. During his conservatory studies, he refined his knowledge and confirmed his desire to write and compose. The will to establish himself on a solo project became stronger and stronger. He quickly discovered deep inside himself the music that he truly loves, inspired by artists such as Tim Maia, America, Al Green, and Al Jarreau. Through his guitar, he gives birth to the majority of his compositions and always seeks to bring the melody of his songs to the forefront. During his studies he met several musicians, including Florian Pellissier, then professor at the conservatory and a confirmed pianist who worked on various projects such as Guts, Anthony Joseph, Florian Pellissier Quintet, and Shola Adissa. Thanks to Florian, Al Sunny met Pascal Rioux, founder and A&R of Favorite Recordings. Immediately seduced and impressed by his talent and the various demos that he listened to, Pascal invited the young musician to collaborate and produce an album with Favorite Recordings. Together they agreed on a musical direction that looks towards the west coast movement of the '70s and '80s. This direction includes influences like Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, and Ned Doheny, of whom Al Sunny covers the classic "Get It Up For Love" on the album. With Time To Decide, Al Sunny shows the listener the premise of his music style, infused with blue-eyed-soul, pop, and folk. Written and composed by himself, it's in close collaboration with Florian Pellissier that his songs came to life. Under the guidance of Pascal Rioux and Favorite Recordings, the production of this album ensures a sound and a final result worthy of the best classics of the genre.
