Come see Funk/Pop singer Robin Stone perform live at the Akron Art Museum Thursday from 6:30 – 8:30 pm as part of the museum’s popular Downtown@Dusk concert series.
The Cleveland native voted “Best Vocalist” at the Free Times Music Awards in 2009 almost wasn’t. After being diagnosed with a tumor on her vocal cord in 2008 and a rare auto immune disease in early 2009, Stone battled back to not only release a new record and a live album but start her own record label, She Loves You Records.
The acclaimed singer’s soulful lyrics are drawn from her personal hardships and over 10 years of experience performing. Sample her sound in her new video for “Bad Girl” below.
For more information on Robin Stone or She Loves You Records, visit her website at www.shelovesyourecords.com/.
During her set at Downtown@Dusk, concert goers may also visit the museum galleries to view The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Ohio, as well as Kaleidoscope Quilts: The Art of Paula Nadelstern and Flora during the evening. Gallery admission is required. For detailed information on this and other museum events, visit the calendar of events at www.AkronArtMuseum.org/calendar.
