Hey guys! What, I’m back again so soon?!
As you may know, I now co-host a show with my friend Pearl on Wednesdays from 4-6. Last week, on April 27th, we had our last show of the semester, and on it, we featured a special guest and returning UIC Radio visitor, Sonny Apollo!
In the past, Sonny appeared on Pahhhsitive Thinking with Elif and Push Love with D-Red. Now, to announce his very own upcoming EP, ADVENTURESINPARADISE, Sonny joined us on air to give us the details in an exclusive interview.
Local Chicagoan, Sonny made his way over here from the east coast, and embarked on quite a journey of both musical and self-discovery. Music has been a part of his life since Sonny was as young as 3 years old. He finds influences in Prince, Elton John, and Stevie Wonder, among others. He explains he received a mix tape from his parents with a melting pot of different artists, giving him exposure to inspiring talent at a young age.
Sonny’s upcoming EP, ADVENTURESINPARADISE, involves messages stemming from self-expression, self-exploration, and sexuality, or as Sonny put it, the “Plight of the Milennial.”
Sonny introduced the instrumental track for his upcoming song off of ADVENTURESINPARADISE, “Zoo.” To conclude, Sonny revealed that ADVENTURESINPARADISE will be released in late July, and the first official single will be released late June.
