A 15-year veteran of the Memphis music scene, singer, songwriter, and guitarist John Paul Keith has four critically acclaimed solo albums, including his latest, Heart Shaped Shadow. The album was produced by Austin, Texas guitar legend Will Sexton for Last Chance Records, alongside In The Meantime, the debut full-length from Motel Mirrors, a collaboration between Keith, Sexton, and singer/bassist Amy LaVere, which reached #21 on the Americana Albums chart in 2018.

In addition to his own projects, John Paul recently appeared on the tribute album Red Hot: A Memphis Celebration of Sun Records, with proceeds going to St. Jude. In 2017, John Paul had the honor of performing with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons at the Memphis Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Roy Orbison. That same year, his song “Afraid To Look” was featured in the Paramount film Downsizing, starring Matt Damon and Kristin Wiig. John Paul also contributed a song to the Don Bryant album from Fat Possum Records, Don’t Give Up on Love, which was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2018 Blues Music Awards.

Funkanites are an eight piece Little Rock Arkansas-based Afrobeat, Soul, and Funk ensemble. The lineup features members of other Little Rock bands such as Amasa Hines, Velvet Kente, and Twice Sax to name a few. To say the band is well seasoned is an understatement. They are quite capable of handling any genre thrown at them, however, their focus is heavily on late 60’s and 70’s Afrobeat, Soul, and Funk with a contemporary spin on the genres. Big bombastic horn lines are the norm, as well as an airtight rhythm section that stretches and sews the pocket but never leaves it. Though almost entirely instrumental, some of the members have been known to sing on a traditional Afrobeat tune or two. They are ambassadors of a music that is not so readily available in a live setting in this day and age. They will move you.

“Among singer-songwriters, Adam Carroll is probably Austin’s best-kept secret. His tunes are marvels of economy; …constantly inventive and decidedly offbeat…Live at Flipnotics offers a typically low-key yet inviting overview of his career.” – Jim Caligiuri, Austin Chronicle

“Influences? Adam Carroll. I used to skip my own gigs to go watch him…by far my favorite, somebody whose writing style I emulated in some ways.” – Hayes Carll, No Depression 2011

Chris Carroll is a Canadian singer-songwriter living in Texas and traveling the continent.

05/01/20 FUNKANITES Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States

In the blues world, you have families: your biological one and your blues one. Holly Springs-based musician Garry Burnside carries both with him at all times. The north Mississippi hill-country blues style of his legendary father, guitarist R.L. Burnside, who died in September 2005, inspired a line of 14 children, grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews to create their own music, forming bands and solo acts to perpetuate their heritage.

Burnside, the 39-year-old son of legendary RL Burnside, used elements of his past to create his current body of work, relying on self-taught guitar instincts and inspiration from his extended blues family. He grew up meeting and being influenced by artists such as Albert Collins and Little Milton Campbell, and emulating others such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix and B.B. King. Burnside began learning to play instruments at age 10, starting with percussion before adding bass and guitar to his repertoire.

Time: 8:30pm. Age restrictions: No Minors. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400.

Cody is the South. It wraps itself around every word he speaks, slowing down the rhythm of words. Then sets them to a hum not unlike that of what fills the space of a July evening in his native Arkansas. He learned how to fish about the time he learned how to ride a horse. Not too long after that he figured out lightening bugs lived longer outside a mason jar than they did inside- banging against the glass.

With The Wreck, Cody’s latest full-length album releasing in the Summer of 2019, Belew has inadvertently captured those lightening bugs of sounds that shaped his musical tastes and sense of artistic self. Without a singular type of music bubbling out of Arkansas, Cody found that he wasn’t just suited for Nashville’s country music, or South Louisiana’s cajun, bluegrass from Kentucky, or the Memphis blues. He needed all of them. Texas too.
