Sunny Stutzman grew up on his parents’ farm in Sangerville, Maine. Sunny’s father, Sid, was also a musician and song-writer, and the pair formed the “Doughty Hill Band,” which still performs and records. The band also features Sunny’s wife, Tracy, and Brian Smith. Sunny, though he carries on his parents’ love of farm life and music, did not follow in their footsteps and become a farmer. Instead, after completing a BA at the University of Maine-Farmington, he earned a graduate degree in Industrial Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. He returned to Maine, worked in product development for Dexter Shoe and Moosehead Manufacturing before establishing Sunny Skies Design, which he currently owns.
