92 ZEW’s Countdown to Hangout concert series continues with Reach the Beach challenger Jamell Richardson opening the show. Richardson will be performing for a chance to score a performance slot at Hangout Fest 2015. Richardson claims Meridian, Mississippi as his home and blues as his passion. Richardson has earned his street creds touring with blues icon Mel Waiters and has also graced the big screen as guitarist Jimmy Nolen in the James Brown biopic “Get On Up.” His soulful blues grooves should have the crowd on their feet and moving to the beat.
Elektra recording artist Anderson East will be the evening’s headliner. This Nashville musician is preparing for the July release of his major label debut. East’s compositions are heavily influenced by the gospel sounds of his childhood and filled with thought provoking lyrics. Songs such as “Cotton Field Heart” are filled with poignant emotion, which is personified during his live performances.
