Sunny Levine hails from one of the most legendary musical bloodlines on the planet. His grandfather Quincy Jones made music with icons like Frank Sinatra & Michael Jackson. His father Stewart Levine (who plays horns on this album) worked with B.B. King, Minnie Riperton, & Simply Red – and Sunny’s uncle QD3 produced records for Tupac & Ice Cube. But the family's latest heir has blazed numerous trails on his own, scoring films and crafting albums with artists such as Shabazz Palaces, Scarlett Johansson, Happy Mondays, and Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. Notions is a continuation of this powerful legacy and builds new roads for the seasoned Los Angeles-based musician.
