2003 was the birthyear of alionsonny, as he did never perform under that name before. The name is a word puzzle made of his nickname Sonny, alien and "a lion". Since 2003 alionsonny is active as a solo musician, producing his songs mostly using digital equipment, but also electric and acoustic guitars, percussion and, very rare, vocals. His style has changed a lot since the 1980s, when he mostly played punk, heavy metal and progressive rock.
His style is now not easy to define. alionsonny mixes electronica, celtic and other folk music (even Polka) and of course Reggae. His music is well established in the independent Dub Reggae scene and he has a small but growing fanbase. In 2004 alionsonny released his first and up to now (2007) last album named "Xperimental Reggae WorX" which features 13 songs from his very early period of making Dub. The songs are raw mastered and playfull, sometimes melancholic. alionsonny released over 80 songs throughout the past four years.A new album is announced to be released since 2005.
He lives in Hamburg/Germany since 1990 with Malina, a graphics and photo artist. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
