Son Little's expressive, soulful grooves, rippling through songs like "Cross My Heart" or "The River," adroitly recall the spirit of Curtis Mayfield or Marvin Gaye. Lyrically, like Little's iconic forebears, there's a strong sociopolitical undertow to the songs of this young artist, signed to the ANTI label. Son Little will be joining Happyness, Horse Thief and Elle King for WFUV and The Alternate Side's CMJ Music Marathon showcase, FUV Live at CMJ, on Tuesday, October 21, at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City from 5-9pm.
The showcase, the very essence of FUV's mission of music discovery, will be broadcast live on 90.7FM WFUV, also streaming online. In addition, a 10-inch vinyl EP, featuring one song from each band, will be recorded and pressed at Rockwood Music Hall that night and given away to FUV listeners at the event. FUV Live at CMJ is supported by Squarespace.
