What the press has to say about Sonny Meadows:
"Mr. Meadows has an inventive sense of rhythm and melody that runs the sonic gamut from Kurt Weil to Southern chain gangs, along with hooky choruses featuring female vocalists that seep deep into the psyche..." Robbie Woliver - New York Times
"Meadows is rightly famous in our area for his wry political and social commentary...he can skewer the absurd and pretentious, but also has a gentle and generous side."
Amy Tuttle - Folk Music Society of Huntington
"Any stories of injustice are fodder for Meadows'' poetry put to music. Meadows is a voice for the oppressed, the victims of political irony you hear about everyday on the news...the homeless, the hardworking immigrants, ethnic minorities and the oblivious everyday Americans who are being oppressed and they don''t even realize it!" - Liz Smith, The Nightguide
