Sonny Knight & The Lakers

Man singing into a microphone
John Behm

Twin Cities soul singer Sonny Knight's first album was named I'm Still Here;  Knight says it refers to "the fact that I'm still here to do what I do is like a blessing to me." We talked with Knight, a Vietnam veteran, about his long road to releasing his first album under his own name at the age of 65-his beginnings singing music in church in Mississippi (where he grew up before moving to St. Paul), the bands he performed with on and off along the way, and the show where the owners of Secret Stash records saw him for the first time.
