Singer-Songwriter Sam Weber Returns to OKC for April 8 Show at ACM Performance Lab

Sam Weber, an indie singer-songwriter and musician from Victoria, British Columbia, returns to OKC for a concert 7 p.m. April 8 at ACM@UCO Performance Lab. Tickets are $10 at acm-uco.eventbrite.com.

Weber is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in the vein of Jackson Browne, The Band, The Wood Brothers and Gillian Welch. He has been touring independently and internationally with his band since 2013. Years spent refining songs at home in North Saanich, BC and working in studios in Los Angeles have honed Weber’s craft to a fine point.

His live show pairs heartfelt songwriting with world-class musicianship and three-part harmony. He has released two LPs to date, “Shadows in the Road” (2014) and “Valentina Nevada” (2016). Through the characters and anecdotes in his songs, Weber sings about the truths of love, life and family.

He and his band released a new EP, “New Agile Freedom,” in 2018 and are now on tour.

ACM@UCO’s Metro Music Series is sponsored by Oklahoma Gazette, Exchange Music, KOSU Radio, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, and the Oklahoma Arts Council, which receives support from the State of Oklahoma and the National Endowment for the Arts’ Art Works initiative.

FESTIVAL ANNOUNCEMENT: The Annie Oakley, Noname headline ACM@UCO’s .WAV Festival on March 2-3

ACM@UCO’s .WAV Festival celebrates women in music with two days of empowering music and performances, March 2-3 at the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) and its ACM Performance Lab in downtown Oklahoma City.

Festival admission is free and open to the public, except for Sunday’s festival-headlining show by acclaimed Chicago hip-hop and spoken-word rapper Noname, who performs 8 p.m. March 3 at ACM Performance Lab, 329 E. Sheridan Ave. Elton and Original Flow & The Fervent Route open the show. Tickets for the Noname concert are $25 and are sold out, although a limited number of tickets might be released for sale closer to the event date.

Popular Americana sweetheart The Annie Oakley headlines the March 2 roster, performing a at 8 p.m. inside the Songwriting Room on the first floor of ACM@UCO’s main campus at 25 S. Oklahoma Avenue (first floor) in downtown Oklahoma City’s Bricktown entertainment district.

The .WAV Festival features three indoor stages at two venues, with most performances happening 4-9 p.m. March 2 and 2-8 p.m. March 3 inside ACM@UCO. The lineup features Miillie Mesh, Ciara Brooke, Lauryn Hardiman, Creeping Toms, Ramona & The Phantoms, Me Oh My, Rozlyn Zora, Jade Castle, Michéla Creel and more. For more information, visit wav.eventbrite.com.

Organized and run by members of ACM’s Women Audio Vision (.WAV) student organization, .WAV Festival showcases multiple genres and more than a dozen music acts performing grunge pop, Americana, blues, folk, singer-songwriter, rap and hip-hop and more.

“.WAV Fest was created to empower women in the music industry,” said Katie Carmichael, student president of ACM@UCO Women Audio Vision (.WAV). “The event features bands with women and women solo artists, as well as dancers, artists and photographers.

“The two-day event is also a food drive for Sisu Youth in OKC that helps homeless youth in the area,” Carmichael added.

All .WAV Festival visitors are encouraged to donate nonperishable food items to benefit Sisu Youth Services, an Oklahoma City nonprofit organization that helps shelter and care for homeless youth living in our community. The mission of Sisu Youth, Inc. is to ensure that young people experiencing adversity have a safe place to sleep, the security to dream and the support to make a positive impact on the world.

Suggested donations:

• $5-10 gift cards for fast food
• Bottled water
• Gatorade
• Pop Tarts
• Fruit snacks
• Snack cups (applesauce, fruit or pudding)
• Beef jerky
• Shelf-stable milk
• Granola and protein bars
• Hormel Compleats or similar shelf-stable, MRE-type food
• Pop-top canned food

“We think .WAV Fest is important because not only are we representing ACM to show how vital the work they’re doing is in Oklahoma, but also to show how many women and female-identifying people are working in the arts in Oklahoma City to help shape the scene,” Carmichael explained.

In fact, the student organization she leads, ACM@UCO Women’s Audio Vision, just began its second year on the school’s downtown campus.

“This is our second year as an organization, but first under the name Women’s Audio Vision,” which is open to everyone, including female and female-identifying members, Carmichael said. “Our purpose is to show other women they aren’t alone in this business and to create a community of capable, trained professional women in OKC.”

ACM@UCO’s Women’s Audio Vision group and the .WAV Festival is funded by the University of Central Oklahoma Student Association. As part of ACM@UCO’s Metro Music Series, the Noname concert is funded in part by the support of its sponsors, including Oklahoma Gazette, Exchange Music, KOSU Radio, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, and the Oklahoma Arts Council, which receives support from the State of Oklahoma and the National Endowment for the Arts’ Art Works initiative.

ACM@UCO Musician and Singer-Songwriter Rozlyn Zora Leaves Fans ‘Speechless’ on Valentine’s Day

This Valentine’s Day, Oklahoma singer-songwriter and musician Rozlyn Zora proves that love is indeed what you choose to make of it. On Feb. 14, she’ll release her new single, “Speechless,” as she embarks on a spring-fling string of shows she’s calling the Makeup//Breakup Mini-Tour.

Zora, from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, is a senior studying production and technology application at ACM@UCO in Oklahoma City. She said she’s long had the goal to release a new song every Valentine’s Day, and the Feb. 14 release of “Speechless” marks her first milestone in achieving it.

The acoustic guitar-driven, lyrically emotive ballad soars with support of ACM graduate Heather Becker on piano and Oklahoma State University student Demetri Tsaras on bass. Zora’s lyrical style on the tune has been compared to Sara Bareilles — a high compliment, to be sure, she said.

“The chorus came to me in a dream,” Zora said. “Charming love songs are my weakness. After I released ‘Love’ in January of 2017, I’ve longed to release a song on Valentine’s Day, and ‘Speechless’ is that dream child.”

“Speechless” was tracked and mixed by ACM@UCO music production and engineering student and student worker Stuart Adams in the school’s second floor-studio. It was mastered by ACM@UCO full-time lecturer and studio manager Kevin Lively (Rage Against the Machine, Pink, Elton John).

To celebrate the recording, Zora announced the quickie, three-date Makeup//Breakup Mini-Tour, in which she and participating bands fill their setlists with love/hate songs.

“The tour runs three days,” Zora said, then laughed. Zora and Mandias (Shawnee, Oklahoma, resident, ACM student and indie folk-rock musician Kate Carmichael) lead the lineup. Special guests round out the show at each show.

Zora’s first stop is a free concert 10 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Rabbit Hole, 116 S. Elgin Ave. in Tulsa, where she performs with Oklahoma City singer-songwriter Mandias and featured guest Lauryn Hardiman. The next night, she cruises through Norman for a 6:30 p.m. Feb. 15 gig with Mandias and UCO-based rock act Useless Randy at Red Brick Bar, 311 E. Main St. in Norman.

On Feb. 16, Zora swings through Bentonville, Arkansas, to perform at the popular Bike Rack Brewing Co.’s Eighth Street Brewery and Tap Room, 801 SE Eighth St., Suite 61. There, she shares the stage with Mandias, Useless Randy and Fayetteville, Arkansas, indie-alternative act Makin Loaf starting at 8 p.m. Tickets for that show are $10 at the door and eventbrite.com.

Iconic American musician ‘Little Steven’ Van Zandt joins ACM@UCO executive director Scott Booker for Nov. 26 masterclass in OKC

Ahead of his Nov. 26 concert in Oklahoma City, longtime musician, actor and actor Steven Van Zandt joins Scott Booker, executive director of the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) for a Q&A-style interview and masterclass. The event is 2 p.m. Nov. 26 in ACM@UCO’s Songwriting Room (first floor), 25 S. Oklahoma Ave. in Bricktown.

The event is part of the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma’s (ACM@UCO) continuing Metro Music Series celebrating the school’s 10th anniversary.

During the masterclass, Van Zandt will discuss his history past and current projects. ACM@UCO CEO and Executive Director Scott Booker will lead the discussion, which is free and open to the public.

Van Zandt’s accomplishments are many. He is a musician, performer, songwriter, arranger, music producer, music supervisor, TV producer, actor, director, Broadway producer, TV and film composer, live event producer, international DJ, activist, historian, teacher and member of the New Jersey and Rock and Roll halls of fame. He is also recognized internationally as one of the world’s foremost authorities on both contemporary and traditional rock ’n’ roll.

“I’m thrilled that Steven Van Zandt is joining ACM@UCO for this masterclass,” said ACM@UCO CEO and Executive Director Scott Booker. “His career spans decades, generations and even mediums — recording, touring, acting, filmmaking, philanthropy and activism. He also embodies our school’s mission to educate and encourage entrepreneurial vitality throughout the music business.

“I expect this to be an extremely informative and entertaining masterclass,” Booker continued. “If I had it my way, we’d convince him to stay and he’d be here every day.”

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band album "Born in the U.S.A."

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band album “Born in the U.S.A.”

After helping create the “Jersey Shore” sound with the band Asbury Jukes, he became a founding member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band (and co-produced seminal Springsteen/E Street Band albums “The River” and “Born in the U.S.A.”). He has gone on to become a successful solo artist in his own right, recording and performing solo with his band Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul.

Last year, Van Zandt released “Soulfire,” his first new album in more than 15 years — returning to his rhythm and blues roots. Rolling Stone magazine named the project one of its “Best Albums of 2017.” In April, he released a three-disc CD box set, “Soulfire Live!,” with a 7-inch vinyl box set and two-disc Blu-Ray to be released this fall.

Additionally, his songs have been performed by artists such as Jackson Browne, Pearl Jam, Jimmy Cliff, Damian Marley, Margo Price, Gary U.S. Bonds, Darlene Love, Nancy Sinatra, Brian Setzer and Black Uhuru, among others.

A longtime activist, Van Zandt has twice been honored by the United Nations for his political activism, including the “Sun City” project and film, and his involvement in “International Peace Day” along with Peter Gabriel. He also established the Solidarity Foundation to promote the sovereignty of indigenous peoples and to foster economic development in harmony with the earth.

Many also recognize him from his seven-season co-starring role on the “Sopranos,” as well as his work starring in, cowriting, executive producing and supervising the music for “Lilyhammer,” the first original programming to stream on Netflix.

In 2001, he launched “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” his internationally syndicated radio show, often called the most successful syndicated rock music radio show in the past 40 years. He also created and produces the first two channels of original content on SiriusXM Satellite Radio, the Underground Garage (Channel 21) and Outlaw Country (Channel 60).

Little Steven and the Disciples of Tour are back on the road this fall with their Soulfire Teacher Solidarity Tour. The landmark live tour benefits The Rock and Roll Forever Foundation’s TeachRock program and has reached the incredible goal of registering over 10,000 teachers (and counting) to use the TeachRock music history curriculum. Founded by Van Zandt, the foundation creates education materials using the history of popular music to create engaging, multicultural lesson plans for history, social studies, language arts, music and science classrooms, all of which are available to educators at no cost.

He joins the ACM@UCO masterclass before his scheduled 8 p.m. Nov. 26 concert at Tower Theatre in Oklahoma City. Learn more about tickets and that show at towertheatreokc.com.

Trevor McBane Headlines ACM@UCO’s High Noon Showcase on Sept. 19

In August, The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) launched the High Noon Showcase, its free, public concert series, at times featuring ACM affiliated artists, as well as great musicians we want to highlight.

On Sept. 19, recent “American Idol” top-24 finalist and former ACM student Trevor McBane brings his authentic Okie twang to High Noon.

He graduated from Savanna High School in 2014, where he introduced himself to his junior FFA camp in a very Johnny Cash-like way: “Hi, I’m Trevor McBane and I love to sing.” And sing he does.

McBane left ACM to chase his country music dreams, auditioning for and becoming a season 16 contestant on American Idol in 2018. He sang his way into the top 24, earning endorsements from celebrity judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan.

Before that, he performed with Savanna, Oklahoma-based folk/Americana quartet Consider the Raven. If you’re unfamiliar with Savanna, it’s near Checotah. Music fans here fans know where that is. He graduated from Eastern Oklahoma State College in 2016. Learn more about Trevor McBane at facebook.com/theguyunderthehat.

Dawson Hollow released it full-length debut, “Boy of My Youth,” in January.

Multitalented multi-instrumentalists Ben, Aaron, Rachel, Kyle and John Link form Dawson Hollow.
