SUNNY GRAY is an Italian-born electronic artist who had music in his bones from the minute he was born. But it took a small shove from his dad to get him to jump into the deep end of the music pool.
Sunny’s dad was the guitarist for a band based in Germany. He would come home and play songs for the family. He is also the one who gave Sunny his first guitar when he was 12 years old. That guitar almost became part of his own body. He never put it down. He’s been playing ever since.
Sunny eventually ended up in a band called Wise Kabobs. They decided to pick up and move, as a band, to London. Sunny put roots down in Camden Town, which also happens to be where the Sex Pistols are from. He felt that connection, too.
Sunny eventually became a solo artist. He started playing shows all over and getting an amazing following. About this song, he says:
“The track is a warning chant, an invitation to raise our awareness and open our eyes and hearts to hear the cry of pain in our world. The word EQUILIBRIUM is not only a very old word coming from Latin, the language of some of my ancestors, representative of my Sardinian roots, it’s also a word that depicts a state in which opposing forces or influences are balanced. I sensed this struggle between the opposites as soon as I landed in the city (London). The artificial entity born from the ashes and the roots of the environment, taking over the latter. I’m feeling we’re slowly but inevitably breaking the harmony between us and mother nature. We’re reaching a point of no return. This song is an invitation to stop, reflect, re-discuss our lives and habits, escape the labyrinth made of gold and greed we’ve built. Equilibrium means balance. Without balance, there is no respect. Without respect, no love exists. Without love, we are no more”.
This track was just released a few weeks ago and it is available for download now.
