Jon Napier Presents Shelley King
February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Jon Napier continues his fantastic series, presenting Shelley King tonight at Barrow Brewing Company!
Shelley King has served as the first female Texas state musician, performed with Levon Helm, toured the United States, Europe and Japan and cut two albums with members of the Subdudes. Her soul-filled, earthy Americana sound is rooted in southern gospel and blues, dampened by the Gulf-borne humidity of Louisiana, nourished by the river loam of Muscle Shoals, then cleansed by the hot springs of her native Arkansas, with a little Texas country bubbling underneath.
Jon Napier moved from West Virginia to Texas in 1999, putting him in touch with a whole new community of songwriters and musicians. Soon he began writing, recording, and performing original material. His newest record, “Last of the Sad Songs” is, “Everything I ever wanted a record to be.” It can only be found on his website. “It’s important to us, that we do things our way”. With roots that run deep, and a talent to match, Jon Napier can put on a performance to satisfy any true music fan’s tastes. Whether you are a follower of the blues, bluegrass, country, or rock and roll, chances are you’ll agree with Jon – “When Music is played from somewhere deep inside a person, it’s good music”.
