he Music Yard presents The Jarekus Singleton Band Thursday, June 21 with opening act The Holdouts. Tickets are $10/advance and $15/door.
At just 30 years old, Jarekus Singleton is a musical trailblazer with a bold vision for the future of the blues. Springing from the same Mississippi soil as Charley Patton, Muddy Waters and B.B. King, Singleton’s cutting-edge sound—equally rooted in rap, rock and blues traditions—is all his own.
He melds hip-hop wordplay, rock energy and R&B grooves with contemporary and traditional blues, turning audiences of all ages into devoted fans. With his untamed guitar licks and strong, soulful voice effortlessly moving from ferocious and funky to slow and steamy to smoking hot, Singleton is a fresh, electrifying bluesman bursting at the seams with talent.
“A great, new blues talent…young, original, soulful and intense…superb, blistering guitar” –BLUES & RHYTHM
“Jarekus Singleton is making some serious blues noise…blending modern-day blues and emotionally intense soul with melodic, hot-toned lead guitar, funk-seasoned rhythms and hip-hop flavored lyrics” –LIVING BLUES
‘Stinging blues guitar and potent, original songs herald the emergence of a major new talent.’ – USA TODAY

Produced by long time collaborator and bass player “Big” Mike Mitschele, 5000 LightYears finds the classic full Leisure McCorkle band back at what they do best – making fantastic hook filled pop songs. Although clearly influenced b early Americana college rock and British alternative/Manchester/shoegazer styles, this full album marks a return to the art of emotive songwriting and clever lyrics. Leisure is currently on tour with the band solo in America and Europe to promote the album. It is available at live shows, and on iTunes and other digital music services.
