Giving you the music a day early:
Anthony David hit it big in 2008 with his tune “Words,” a duet with India.Arie. Although the tune didn’t hit the pop charts, it was nominated for a Grammy for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. The R&B and neo-soul artist influenced by Bill Withers (David plays a mean acoustic guitar as well) comes to Juanita’s for a night of music, including tunes from David’s As Above So Below, an album released earlier this year. The doors open at 8 p.m. with the music at 9 p.m. Tickets are $17 in advance and $20 at the door.
Adam Faucett‘s third solo album More Like A Temple is both a natural extension of Faucett’s evolving sound and also a new direction. It’s meatier, rockier and Faucett’s voice is less operatic and more soulful. Still beautiful but grittier. Scrappier and dirtier. Sepia-toned. And Faucett has been delivering those new tunes to audiences across central Arkansas, and he’ll continue to do so with a stop at White Water Tavern. The music starts at 10 p.m. Faucett’s music is “Southern soul swamp opera,” a mix of country folk, rock ‘n’ roll, power pop and soul.
