First Listen: All-4-One's Jamie Jones gets us stepping with "Sunny"

(July 22, 2021) We’ve been covering singer, songwriter and producer Jamie Jones since the jump at SoulTracks. The Grammy Award-winner of course made his name as the tenor lead vocalist in All-4-One, but with his production group The Heavyweights, he has also been a hitmaker for such stars as Regine Belle, Wayne Brady and Anastasia.

With concerts coming back, Jamie is out touring the world again with All-4-One, but he also has a special treat for his fans. This prolific songwriter is actually singing a cover song – and a classic at that. Bobby Hebb turned “Sunny” into an all-time favorite back in 1966, and now, 55 years later, Jamie gives it a cool modern new look.

Jamie tells us, “I wanted to record something light that felt good. We’ve all been through so much in the last year, and I figured we could all use a little more sun in our lives. I dare you not to smile when you listen to this!”

Opening with electric guitar and finger snaps, the new version of “Sunny” has a groove that steppers in Chicago will dig, and an accompanying video that screams Summer. And of course, Jamie sounds great up front.

Check out “Sunny” and get that sunshiny feeling in your day.
