Fairhope will be getting in the spirit of the season courtesy of the Knights of Ecor Rouge. Before this festive group of maskers showers downtown Fairhope with trinkets, Fairhope Brewing Co. will be providing the masses with a lineup of local brews and a performance by Stephen Sylvester.
Sylvester’s journey into the music world can be traced back to his father, who performed in a church worship band. Even though Sylvester’s life has taken him down many roads, these various paths have led him back to music.
In 2016, Sylvester released his debut album “Down to the Jordan,” which was recorded at the University of Mobile’s world-class Fisher-Brewer Recording Studio. This release is a versatile collection highlighted by Sylvester’s brand of Gulf Coast blue-eyed soul. “Down to the Jordan” is filled with everything from high-energy grooves to passionate ballads. Sylvester’s clean delivery of vocal soul provides the thread connecting the album’s six tracks.
