Concord Recording artists Southern Avenue live at Grey Eagle 4/19
April 1 @ 9:00 am - April 19 @ 10:30 pm$1215
Memphis multi-cultural group Southern Avenue is gearing up to release its second album via Concord Records in May. Featuring sisters Tierinii and Tikyra Jackson (vocals, drums) and Israeli-born guitarist Ori Naftaly, the group effectively melds blues, soul and rock with gospel tinged undertones.
Quotes about their debut album from 2017 — “Southern Avenue’s modern sound melds gospel-infused R&B with a rootsy rock feel,” wrote Mix. Relix referred to Southern Avenue as “a deeply soulful Memphis band that’s turning the scene on its head,” while Goldmine called their music “a frothy Memphis soul stew fit to twitch your body to in ways you didn’t think you could,” The Chicago Reader called the band’s debut album “a boiling retro-soul primer,” adding that “Tierinii has a riveting stage presence.”
