U of A’s Hill Records is hosting a free artist show on November 9 at George’s Majestic
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Hill Records, the student-run record label at the University of Arkansas, will host its first showcase at George’s majestic living room in Fayetteville at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 9. This event for all ages is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 p.m.
The showcase features three local acts that were hand-selected by the Hill Records after their Spring 2020 call for submissions: Pat Ryan Key, Foxpaw and H3ADCANNON.
Award-winning songwriter and record producer Pat Ryan Key presents a unique blend of “funky groove from Muscle Shoals, soulful Stax Records and Northwest Arkansas roots,” according to Sean Clancy of The Arkansas Democratic Gazette. Key attributes authenticity as its driving force, presenting a “variety of musical flavor profiles [that] keeps the auditor engaged â, according to The brain drain gap.
Foxpaw, the solo alternative folk project orchestrated by songwriter, performer and producer Chandler B., aims to sonically tell of years of exploration across the southern United States. Foxpaw invites listeners to share vivid representations and memories of various landscapes to create an intimate listening space.
Sam Byrd and Dyl Wil of H3ADCANNON say their music is âwildly inventive and full of energy, inspired by Max Martin, Brittney Spears and Elton John. It’s packed with electropop production, metalcore breaks and pop punk vocals for a fresh new sound.
