ArchCity Defenders Benefit feat. Maya Azucena w/ special appearance by Brian Owens
Award winning singer-activist Maya Azucena returns to St. Louis for this exclusive concert benefiting ArchCity Defenders. During her set she will be joined on stage by Brian Owens, who will give a sneak preview of his upcoming Marvin Gaye tribute.
ABOUT MAYA AZUCENA
According to the Village Voice: "armed with a powerfully compelling voice, Azucena just could be the most impressive of the current hip-hop/soul/r&b diva crop." As one Chinese newspaper put it, "she has the power to penetrate blocks...and to touch people of many cultural backgrounds." The Washington Post affirmed "...she sang on, of justice with wings, of love in everything, of feeling good and feeling strong and how everything, everything, everything's gonna be all right."
ABOUT BRIAN OWENS
Gary Moran of Soul Tracks recently said: "Brian Owens has been called the next great voice of American soul and, although he's quick to point out he's simply upholding the traditions of other great soul singers from years gone by, Owens clearly relishes the honors bestowed on him, assuming his mantle with utmost seriousness."
