Beginning in the Winter-Spring 2021 Season, 901 Notes is BPACC's ongoing concert series highlighting some of the best musical artists Memphis and the Mid-South have to offer. Once a season, BPACC will be hosting local music that truly is without an equal. We begin our series with the talents of Amy LaVere and John Paul Keith, both native Memphians who have explored the scene and conquered their respective subgenres.
FROM AMY LAVERE'S ARTIST PAGE
Amy’s live performances are anything but predictable. She might appear on stage with a full band, sporting a mask and pink wig, or simply be a natural in blue jeans and sandals, but her upright bass and clever song delivery are constants. Her voice is at once the bully and the victim. She’s performed in venues as wide-ranging as St. Andrew’s Hall in London and Memphis’ famed dive bar Earnestine and Hazel’s. There’s no room she can’t find an audience in and charm it to pieces.
John Paul Keith is one of those musicians who is unflinching in his honesty, whether it's through his lyrics or through his Telecaster. From his solo debut album Spills and Thrills to his 2018 studio album Heart Shaped Shadow, JPK plays timeless rock that takes up residence in your head; I've caught myself humming "Something So Wrong" plenty of times. JPK contributes regularly to NPR Worldwide's Beale Street Caravan program.
