John Lester with Baxter Robertson, Michael Manring, & Daniel Berkman
- When: Sunday, Sep 24, 2017 7:30 PM
- Ticket Price: $16.00 - $21.00
Bell Stage Main Dining RoomJohn Lester returns to Angelicas in support of his new album ‘Fathers and Sons’. With John on vocals, guitar, bass guitars, upright bass, and ukulele, his band features pianist Baxter Robertson, Grammy award-winning fretless electric bassist Michael Manring, and drummer percussionist/drummer Daniel Berkman.
‘Fathers and Sons’, is a collection of John’s most personal and powerful work yet. Inspired by the often unspoken family relationships between men, each song messages the love, pain, tension, struggle, and questions that arise and confound these ties and bonds. From the full acceptance and embrace of a young boy’s gender fluidity in “The Beautiful Princess of Never Come True”, to the merciful attempts at reconciliation with an estranged father during his final days in “The High Road”, to the feeling of forever growing family love in “Real, Real Love”, John’s life experience as a father, husband, son, teacher, and songwriter is felt throughout each song.
“This is a strong album! ‘The Beautiful Princess of never Come True is a total sledge hammer to the heart!” – Peter Finch, The Finch Files Podcast (formerly of KFOG)
“His voice sounds like it has been crafted from silk and granite all at the same time.” – Maverick Magazine
“John doesn’t just have a great voice…he is a voice! Great songs that really communicate.” – Russ Jennings, KPFA
