Frances Cone and Owen Beverly Return to Charleston
Hailing from the lowcountry of Charleston to the Mississippi Delta, now Brooklyn-based Frances Cone, creates an indie pop that harkens back to old time folk and blues. With soulful, smoky vocals and lyrics that both comfort and challenge, the band subverts tradition to live in a world of delicate sensibilities and mesmerizing heartbreak, reaching a place that sings you through the ups and the downs, remarking on the heavy while lightening the load. They fall into a world occupied by the likes of Neko Case, Cat Power, Feist, Rufus Waingwright, and Ryan Adams. Fronted by Frances Cone, she is joined onstage by Owen Beverly, Ward Williams, Andrew Dougherty, and Benji Lee. Already acclaimed by the likes of Vanity Fair, Paste and Brooklyn Vegan, their reach is proving far and wide, their authenticity and captivating melodies undeniable. Frances Cone released an album earlier this year to rave reviews with features in Vanity Fair, Paste Magazine, and American Songwriter to name a few. She returns to Charleston's Tin Roof Friday, the 5th, with Owen Beverly and his band, French Camp, who also recently released an album, Odd Particle, produced by Charleston's Josh Kaler and mixed by Jay Clifford. Tin Roof, 1117 Magnolia Road, West Ashley. Friday, July 5. (843)571-0775.
