Raised in Milwaukee Wi, Shel Riser, was given the nick name SonnyBoy, learning to play multiple instruments in the more Gospel/R&B tradition he found him self working with Funk, Reggae, Hip hop and Rock Bands. Inspired by his Blues singer Uncle, "Sonny Green", a well known musician from Louisiana, SonnyBoy also explored music of the blues tradition. Moving to Minneapolis, MN with only his guitar and the clothes on his back, he threw himself fully into exploring Funk, Reggae, Rock and Hip Hop, prevalent in the "Paisley" music scene.
