Shaun Gunnels On His New Music Project: Southern Weather
Back in July of 2017, I did an interview on a musical project by my friend Shaun Gunnels whom I’ve known since the early 2000’s when we both worked at the same retail store at Firewheel Mall. I grew up on his music as his local-turned-nation-wide band, “The Background” had some of the best pop-punk sounds around. Years later, he started up the solo project, “Dnvr Max” that I covered in my first article about him.
Today, I’d like to spend some time talking about where he’s channeling his creative talents to nowadays, his new band, “Southern Weather”.
It's been a while since the last article. Tell me a little bit about the Southern Weather Band and what caused you to make this creative transition.
When do you expect your band to release a full EP?
“My Favorite Song” was their first song released under their new band name and has been on almost every playlist I’ve made on Spotify since it debuted. I’m in love with the new sound which makes me even more excited to announce that Friday they released a lyrical video for their second song entitled, “Fences” which can be viewed below!
As Shaun said above, you can expect a full album soon. As a huge fan, (and from my perspective) as long as he’s making music, I’ll be listening and spreading it. To follow him and the rest of the band and to stay updated with new releases and upcoming shows, I’ll list some social links below and be sure to give them a listen on their Spotify artist page. Keep up the awesome work, Shaun!
