October 18, 2013 – Los Angeles – Singer/songwriter and musician Don Arbor has released the latest single, “Another Sunny Day in Paradise” from his third studio album. “Sunny Day” is one of 16 original tracks and 4 classic covers on the two-disc set entitled “Man on a Mission” which was released this summer. Both the single and album are available on CD Baby and iTunes.
“Another Sunny Day in Paradise” captures the beat and melody of a summer day when everything goes right. Since July, the single spent the summer climbing the FMQB AC 40 Chart, and it continues to gain momentum throughout the country. This week, “Sunny Day” found a spot on the very hip, Mediabase “Cool New Music List!”
Written and performed by Don Arbor, the song highlights his warm vocals, featuring a super-group of musicians — Stef Burns (from the Huey Lewis band) on lead guitar, David K. Matthews (keyboards) and Tony Lindsay (harmony vocals), both from the Santana band, Marc Russo (from Tower of Power and the Doobies) on sax, and Peter Michael Escovedo on percussion.
“I love to see the smiles on the faces when they hear this song” says Don. “From the opening beat, the groove just brightens up your day”.
A multi-talented musician, Don is also an award-winning video artist. His music videos, “Salam Pax” and “If I Had a Son, He’d Look Like Trayvon” have taken on important social issues through compelling images and melodic songs, winning Best Music Video awards at the Berkeley Video and Film Festival in 2008 and 2012.
Don Arbor’s 2 CD set, “Man on a Mission” includes a “mostly electric” CD with catchy, hook-filled pop/rock, a splash of reggae and blues. The second CD is “mostly acoustic” featuring Don’s pure vocals, backed by Grammy-nominated artists Mike Marshall, Barbara Higbie, and the SF quartet on beautiful string arrangements.
