Ann Arbor…! Some notable artists from Detroit are coming your way. Each of them have had outstanding 2018’s in terms of their creative output, stylistic expansion and spectacle-scale live performances…, and they’re capping off the year with a stop at The Blind Pig.
Sara Marie Barron released Wanna Know in the Spring; her debut album of melodic indie-jazz ballads glowed with the poignancy she imbues into every note, every emotion, every heart-heavy story. She also has quite a talent for writing and a grasp of music (by way of her reporting for the Metro Times and Audiofemme).
Cousin Mouth, meanwhile, also released their debut album, Medusa, back in March. Produced by ambient hip-hop specialist Eddie Logix (primarily at Assemble Sound in Detroit), the album swoons with emotional neo-soul from vocalist/songwriter Alex Burns and producer Lexi, as they pair their layers of vaporous tones and minimalist beats with several cameo artists. They’ll be premiering a new music video right before the show, so stay tuned for that.
Britney Stoney has been a source of melodic radiance around the Detroit music scene for several years, versatile in the realms of folk, R&B, neo-soul and electronica/pop. She’s also an accomplished playwright, which explains her keen sensibility for capturing the human experience with succinctly poetic lyrics. Her voice is a gossamer, gliding charm that could just about lift you off your feet. When How To Dress Well came to town last week, she opened the evening with songs like her latest, O.D… (video below).
It’s rare that Detroit artists make it over to Ann Arbor, and vice-versa. Mark your calendar now and come say hello to your neighbors just a few dozen miles east down I-94, when they come perform at the Blind Pig. INFO
