THE SUNSHINE ALBUM by Jermaine Lockhart
Gifted saxophonist, Jermaine Lockhart, debuts his artistic, authentic, true character, and creative self in this new project, THE SUNSHINE ALBUM.
THE SUNSHINE ALBUM boasts cameo spots by esteemed musical talents, RAY PARKER JR., ELLIS HALL, and ROB MULLINS. It is produced by music icon PRESTON GLASS, and the legendary and great GEORGE BENSON provides executive oversight.
The vibe of the music is lively and broad-reaching and cleverly uses “sunshine” as its catalyst… something the world could use a lot more of especially during these uncertain times.
Only a few months ago, Lockhart’s Single EP, “Back To the Sunshine” showed its muscle by cracking the UK Top 10 Chart, and it is also included on THE SUNSHINE ALBUM. Also, the album has well-chosen, thematic “sunshine” cover songs: “Roll With It”, “Sunshine Superman” and “Ain’t No Sunshine”; and it has original compositions: “Emotion Explosion”, “Have It Anyway You Want It” and “Elizabeth”. THE SUNSHINE ALBUM proves to be a bright and glowing collection of songs, with interludes sprinkled in-between.
It’s no wonder George Benson has this to say about Lockhart: “Jermaine Lockhart is an artist that comes along only once in a while. When you hear him play, it’s something very striking – so that the next time you hear him, you’ll KNOW there is something very familiar about his sound.”

It has the same 1st class production (by Preston Glass) that his 1st single did, but the exceptional thing about this recording is that it boasts Executive Production by the legendary GEORGE BENSON, and it was written by George’s son Robbie Benson.
