RIP SUNNY BOY WILLIS (aka) SYD THE KYD
Sydney Willis Anderson Jr.(known to may as Sunny Boy Willis and as Syd The Kyd), was a First Nations artist who lived in Rochester during the 80's.
He was well known in the local music scene for his roots centered music. He recorded in a variety of styles but hewed closest to the sounds of his Sun Records heroes, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley.
Always true to his passions, his work can be compared to today's rockabilly and psychobilly artists. Sunny passed away on November 30th, 2014
