Brian Owens & The Deacons of Soul To Perform At Musicians Corner Summer Concert Series On Saturday, June 3

On Saturday, June 3, 2017, national recording artist Brian Owens will perform at the 2017 Musicians Corner Summer Concert Series in Nashville’s Centennial Park. Owens and his band The Deacons of Soul (Alvin Quinn, Shaun Robinson, Rob Woodie) will take the main stage at 3:00 p.m.

 

Considered to be one of Nashville’s premiere outdoor music destinations, Musicians Corner 2017 will feature over 150 local and national artists representing all music genres, food trucks, local artisan vendors, Kidsville activities and more taking place from 5-9pm on Fridays and from 12-5pm on Saturdays in May, June, August and September.

 

While Owens is no stranger to Nashville (he’s recorded here upon numerous occasions), this will be his first concert in Music City. His music is infused with blues, classic soul, folk, country and gospel resulting in a style uniquely his own, and his songs are uplifting, hopeful and motivational — music that makes you want to move. Nashville music lovers are sure to be impressed with his vibrant and spirit-stirring performances.

 

Owens first gained worldwide attention as the lead singer with the U.S. Air Force band Sidewinder that became an internet sensation and led to national appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “Fox & Friends,” at the White Housethe World Series and more.

 

As a solo artist, Owens has had several national releases, including MOODS & MESSAGES, PREACH, and his most recent SOUL OF FERGUSON, which was released in February 2017. The critically acclaimed project featured Grammy-winning vocalist Michael McDonald on the debut single, “For You.”

 

Owens is currently gearing up for the launch of SOUL OF CASH  in late June. It’s the second in a series of three projects he will release this year alone. The album finds the soulful singer-songwriter breathing new life into music of legendary Johnny Cash, including classics like “Ring of Fire,” “Man in Black,” and “Walk The Line” and more.

California native and powerhouse vocalist, Lara Johnston, recently performed a full band show on April 26th at the beautiful AURORA Nashville hosted by Caroline Hobby from Nashville Insider and “The Amazing Race”.

With her soulful pop sound and a voice reminiscent of today’s music greats like Kelly Clarkson or Pink, Johnston entertained a packed audience inside the AURORA Nashville studio while streaming live to an audience around the country through the AURORA site.

Johnston, just recently off the road after a world tour as backing vocalist for the iconic Don Henley, is confident, entertaining and takes full command of the stage.

Her songs are full of soul with her own pop mixture added and inspired by her musical influences of Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and many more Motown musical greats.

This is an artist to watch and one to see live as she delivers her original tunes with such an incredibly-strong voice that very few can muster.  Certainly a standout and a cut above many young artists today as she basically delivers what can only be described as a masterclass of voice & overall performance as she takes the stage.

She is a seasoned and polished performer who should be a household name already.  Think only time will tell for this star in the making who is making a buzz in Nashville.

Watch for her new album to be released very soon.
