Sunny Hawkings has been a singer-songwriter and live performer for more than a decade, regularly swinging between solo and full band gigs in his hometown of Melbourne, with a rotating list of band members and varied cast of collaborators.

After years honing his craft on the live circuit, the exhausting, expansive and sprawling two-plus years recording process behind Sheets of Life captures the evolution of Hawkings as a musician, producer and recording artist.
