Singer-songwriter SUNNY OZELL has announced the release of her brand-new single and video for “Not Afraid,” from her recently released second album OVERNIGHT LOWS.  Watch the clip here.


The aptly titled new track–marked by its defiant sentiment in the unprecedented situation the world presently finds itself in–espouses a powerful message amidst isolation, fear and the different types of thoughts that creep up and plague us all with worry when we can’t sleep.  SUNNY‘s strong personality permeates stand-out production, resolute groove and message of boldness. “Not Afraid” follows the album’s last single “All That I Am,” which debuted earlier this year at AMERICAN SONGWRITER; the video for that track has already garnered more than half a million views.


“I put my record OVERNIGHT LOWS out on February 28 and I had a lot of things ‘on the books’ to promote this album that I’m so fucking proud of,” SUNNY says.  “But the planet, or rather, a sub-microscopic pathogen, had other plans.”


“In very short order, the things that truly matter have come into very sharp focus:  love, safety, family and friends.  I wish health to you and everyone you hold dear.  I thought it might be a good time to share ‘Not Afraid,’ another single from my record…it’s appropriately ominous, but triumphant all the same.”


This past weekend, SUNNY was featured, alongside her husband Sir Patrick Stewart, on CBS’ “Sunday Morning.” SUNNY also recently shared her “Church Sessions,” three videos that were filmed at centuries-old churches throughout the UK earlier this year.  The clips merge her love of music, history, and travelWatch the clips here. Next up is a new release, details of which will be announced in the coming weeks.


OVERNIGHT LOWS gleams with engaging melodies and intelligent wordplays, performed with a sophisticated fluency in pop, jazz, soul and Americana dialects. In SUNNY‘s words, OVERNIGHT LOWS reflects the soul and simplicity of her passion for such inspirations as Bonnie Raitt, David Byrne, Cassandra Wilson, and Aretha Franklin.  Players on the album include Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant, Aimee Mann, Alison Krauss), Tyler Chester (George Ezra, Maddison Cunningham), Andy Hess (The Black Crowes, David Byrne), Adam Levy (Norah Jones, Roseanne Cash), and Rich Hinman (Sara Bareilles). The album was recorded at Village Studios in Los Angeles, and engineered by Mike Piersante.  Listen to the album here.
