Sunny Side of the Street is the second studio album by Bryn Haworth.

Interviewed in 2009, Haworth commented on the album opening with the gospel song 'Good Job': ".. I thought it was a great track. I thought, I've never heard anything like this before. I'd been listening to Andraé Crouch and all the Blind Boys stuff because there was nothing to listen to when you became a Christian back then so you'd go back in time. Andre Crouch: Live At Carnegie Hall was the best album that I'd heard at that time and then you went back to The Blind Boys and all the black gospel stuff and I thought, this is what I relate to because it's like R&B. My roots are more R&B roots; old style. So it started to come out in things like 'Good Job'."[1]
