Sheldon Concert Hall
Peter Martin Trio with Erin Bode & Brian Owens
Soul singer Brian Owens is one of St. Louis’ most acclaimed young performers. He recently released his second album, Preach, and this spring, played to a sold-out crowd at the Apollo Music Café in New York City. He also performed the Louis Armstrong role in a rare staging of “The Real Ambassadors” at the Jazz at Lincoln Center Dave Brubeck Festival. In April, he toured Japan representing American soul music on a tour in partnership with Sweet Soul Records and Blue Note Japan. He regularly tours the east coast, south and Midwest, and his Masters Series, a tribute to America’s musical greats, is an ongoing project at The Sheldon.
Vocalist Erin Bode has consistently won over audiences with her bell-like voice, sweet personality and distinctive repertoire with crossover appeal that has proven equally at home in grand venues or relaxed clubs. Bode and her band, The Erin Bode Group, have recorded four albums to date including her most recent release, Photograph. Bode has toured with her band nationally and internationally, and they have opened for performers such as Mary Wilson, Michael Bublé, Macy Gray and Jamie Cullum.
