Friday Night Music Series: August 4
J.T. Brown will be at the Sundial on Friday night, August 4th, from 6:00pm-10:00pm for the Friday Night Music Series. Brown is an American musician and producer and plays Spacefolk, Soul, and Rock & Roll. Creative Loafing recently interviewed Brown upon the release of his latest album, Phantom Heart: J.T. Brown grew up in Lutz, Florida with a music-nut father. At one point, Dad was buying so much music that Mom intervened to ask how the family was going to keep the lights on and pay for their kids’ tuition. At nine years old, he was given an alto sax, and two years later he got his first guitar. Now the 32-year-old has been playing guitar for nearly two decades. Read the full interview here.
