After a number of requests, J. Howell is finally bringing the full “RedRoom” experience to his hometown on Friday, October 29th at 7pm. The R&B sensation will paint downtown Memphis red with his “RedRoom Experience” concert at The Halloran Center beside the historic Orpheum Theatre.
He’s also brought R&B songstress Dondria to be the opening act. So you can best believe that this will be a concert with some amazing singing!
This concert will be R&B at its finest; including all of J.Howell’s hit songs — “Talk”, “Something About Ya”, “Faithful” and many more.
The Memphis native has been taking the music industry by storm with his soulful, raw and powerhouse vocals. His debut album, RedRoom, came out August of 2019 and it is still in heavy rotation on playlists and DJ sets. His songs are also in constant rotation on Mainstream Urban Radio Stations across the nation, with his single “Something About Ya” expected to break into the Top 30 this month.
Howell has a classic R&B sound that is unlike what is being heard today and definitely a different sound coming from Memphis.
As a music lover during the beginning phases of quarantine I spent a lot of time surfing youtube and listening to music and I came across J.Howell’s video ‘My Everything’. It was my first time hearing of him, but the video was him in a room with one mic, sitting on the floor as the sun shined through and for those 4 minutes I was in awe; I had totally forgotten about the dreadful pandemic at that moment because his voice was so calming.
I instantly fell in love with J. Howell’s artistry. Recently, I found out he was a product of Memphis and wasn’t surprised but extremely excited to know such talent came from this city.
Not only has he built a following with his peers here in Memphis; J. Howell also has quite the social media presence. With over 80 thousand followers on Instagram, and growing; he definitely knows how to draw his audience in.
Terlynn Lucas, a supporter of J.Howell says, “No matter how many times he sings live, he always gives the deepest and rawest of emotions with it.”
Stay tuned for the review of the ‘Red Room Experience’.
