ARTIST OF THE WEEK

G.Love

Sonic Lunch headliner G. Love will supply summery, feel-good tunes and grooves when he takes the stage at Liberty Plaza on June 23rd!

 

The Philadelphia singer-songwriter (born Garrett Dutton in 1972) was in grade school when he started playing guitar and harmonica, and subsequently developed his special blend of laidback hip-hop, blues, jazz and rock with help from bandmates Jeffrey Clemens on drums and Jimi "Jazz" Prescott on upright bass.  The 1994 Epic Records debut album by G. Love and Special Sauce featured their signature song Cold Beverage, with 2020's The Juice being their ninth and, for now, latest studio recording.

 

The day after G. Love's Sonic Lunch performance he releases Philadelphia Mississippi, a brand-new studio album produced by Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi All-Stars.  Luther is the son of Jim Dickinson, who produced G. Love & Special Sauce’s sophomore album Coast to Coast Motel.

 

Opening the show at 11:30 AM on June 23rd will be the young country music musician Myron Elkins.  Myron's songs will take you back to the glory days of the genre, bringing to mind such legendary names as Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.

 

Raised in west Michigan, Elkins also gives credit to R&B icons Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Etta James for his intense, from-the-gut vocal style.  And tell me, how can you not love an artist whose debut EP is entitled Just Another A**hole With A Guitar?
