March 28, 2019: Sonny Dumarsais
Tonal Vision featured Sonny Dumarais as our twelth act from Mice in the Attic, Tonal Vision’s live streaming music series. Reynoldson Sonny was accompanied by Berthony "BeBe" Excellent on keyboards and Smooth Perry on background vocals.
Reynoldson “Sonny” Dumarsais (Due’Mar Say) is an accomplished musician/songwriter who came from humble beginnings playing lead guitar for his church. Sonny got together with some other talented musicians from the New Jersey area whom were his best friends and all grew up in church. The friends formed a band called “Plan B” and later changed their name to "The plan Band." The Plan Band help Sonny form his signature sound by introducing him to rhythm and blues. The Plan Band went on to participate in many local and national gigs including the McDonald's gospel fest.
The trajectory of Sonny’s musical career changed when his family suffered a terrible four-alarm fire that destroyed his family’s home. Sonny lost everything in the fire, including his prized guitar. Down and out, the life changing experience inspired Sonny to begin writing lyrics and composing songs to express real life stories of hope.
Sonny’s talent also allowed him to share the stage as the lead guitarist with artists he admired such as Angie Stone, Neyo and Anthony Hamilton to name a few. Sonny has played in legendary venues such as the Howard Theatre and BB Kings, alongside the likes of Lyfe Jennings and Elle Varner.
As a solo artist, Sonny longs to inspire young people to achieve greatness as he strives to be the voice for those filled with anguish seeking songs that express optimism. He desires to speak to this generation one listening ear at a time. Sonny wants his songs of hope to inspire youth to know; “They can achieve anything they want to achieve no matter the circumstance.”
