THE ST. LOUIS SYMPHONY PRESENTS THE SOUL OF CASH: A TRIBUTE TO THE MUSIC OF JOHNNY CASH FEATURING BRIAN OWENS AND THE DEACONS OF SOUL

The music of Johnny Cash takes over Powell Hall Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 3:00pm 

(St. Louis, MO) - The celebrated St. Louis Symphony and soulful Brian Owens will breathe new life into the music of Johnny Cash May 21, 2017. The orchestra and Owens will be joined for the concert by special guests Dylan McDonald, Rissi Palmer, and Austin Grim Smith. Additionally, The Vaughns will make their debut at Powell Hall.

The Soul of Cash: A Tribute to the Music of Johnny Cash will include classic songs like “Ring of Fire,” “Man in Black,” Walk the Line,” and “Greystone Chapel.” Owens has garnered national acclaim for his ability to captivate audiences with his singing, versatility, and passion. The dynamic performer’s “modern soul sound” is inspired by great artists like Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Curtis Mayfield, and of course Johnny Cash.

Owens is no stranger to Powell Hall. The Ferguson, Missouri resident is the STL Symphony’s IN UNISON Artist in Residence. “I feel extremely blessed to be able to share the stage with my friends and colleagues at the STL Symphony and share this wonderful project that pays homage to Mr. Johnny Cash,” Owens said.

In addition to his track record of dazzling audiences during live performances, Owens is an accomplished recording artist. His newest album “Soul of Ferguson” will be released in early 2017. The album takes listeners on a musical journey that includes the single “For You,” featuring five-time Grammy winner Michael McDonald.
