Featuring performances by Peter Martin Trio, The 442s, and Brian Owens and Deacons of Soul

The Sheldon in pleased to present an evening of Saint Louis sounds as a culmination of a two-day conference of Midwest talent buyers being hosted by The Sheldon. Free and open to the public, the showcase will feature some of the best performers St. Louis has to offer including internationally-acclaimed jazz pianist Peter Martin and his Trio, classical-crossover favorites the 442s and nationally-recognized soul singer Brian Owens and his band.

The Peter Martin Trio consists of three of the most critically acclaimed and charismatic jazz musicians of their generation – Peter Martin on piano, Gregory Hutchinson on drums and Rueben Rogers on bass. They have played on some of the most important recordings of the last 20 years, including 14 Grammy winning CDs with artists such as Joshua Redman, Dianne Reeves, Joe Henderson, Charles Lloyd and Roy Hargrove. The trio's latest release is now available: What Lies Ahead.

Comprised of two members of the world-class St. Louis Symphony and two of the city's finest jazz musicians, The 442s are a genre-defying acoustic quartet named for the modern standard tuning of 442 Hz. Brought together by the innovative and inspired compositions of Adam Maness, the group combines outstanding musicianship, group singing and inventive improvisation, while breaking down barriers between jazz, classical, folk and pop music.

St. Louis based singer and soul musician Brian Owens is rapidly earning a reputation as one of the most promising young vocalists on today's music scene, performing on television for Good Morning America, BET's Jazz Discovery, and the Emmy Award-winning The Wayne Brady Show. The music of Brian Owens is a synthesis of the intimacy of Bill Withers' urban folk, the vocal style of Sam Cooke and the soul stirring emotion and social consciousness of Donny Hathaway. All of these elements combine to create a sound that is unique and a voice that is distinctively his own.
