Fresh off the release of their new EP Small Victories, Detroit-based quintet Flint Eastwood are bringing their brand of bluesy, soulful pop-music to Ann Arbor. Fronted by multi-talented artist Jax Anderson (pictured), the music is a product of her Detroit upbringing and the creativity that has blossomed from the city’s ongoing revitalization. Weaned on her mother’s love of Motown, Anderson spent time in Georgia as a young adult, absorbing blues, pop, and country music, before moving on to Los Angeles. There, she combined her interests in multi-media art and music, creating a style of performance that is as visually stimulating as the music is heart-pumping. On their latest EP, recorded in Detroit,  Anderson takes the listener on a journey through her mother’s illness and passing, as well as the passion that keeps her striving forward musically. Valley Hush and Air is the Arche open.
