Son Little plays live music at Strings Music Festival

Event Details

Catch Son Little, rightful torchbearer of the celebrated musical tradition known as rhythm and blues, with his band on their North American Tour in support of their newest album Like Neptune.

On sale to the public September 29.

Son Little, praised by American Songwriter as “one of the best songwriters working today,” conceived his latest album, Like Neptune, in a cabin overlooking the Delaware River in upstate New York. Trading in the existential dread permeating his previous work for unbridled joy and self-acceptance, Son Little transmutes the chronic pain of self-doubt into a beautiful and freeing opus about overcoming generational trauma. Hailed by Afropunk as “a stunning statement of purpose,” Like Neptune decorates the altar of the primordial blues and elevates the labor of healing to high art. “I’ve always felt as though I was making music because I had to, something inside compelled me. Fueled me,” Little shared. “This the first time in a long time I’m making music for the pure joy of creating.”

Son Little and his band, comprised of Little (vocals/guitar), Steve McKie (drums), and DeShawn Alexander (keys/bass), will tour North America for the first time in support of Like Neptune through November and December.

*Donors of $500 or more to the 2024 Strings Annual Fund are granted early ticket access.
