Amel Larrieux at Fridays at Sunset 

May 28

With an artistically encouraged upbringing in New York's Greenwich Village, new-soul songstress Amel Larrieux first broke out in the R&B music scene in the late '90s with producer Bryce Wilson working under the name Groove Theory. Though scoring a Top 10 hit on the Billboard charts with the single “Tell Me,” Larrieux quickly embarked on a solo career, blending her jazz-trained vocals alongside the influences of hip-hop, and stylish funk and soul. With tracks such as sorrowfully piano ballad “Don't Let Me Down” and the sensually danceable “Orange Glow” to be featured on her anticipated fourth album scheduled for release this year, Larrieux is set to kick off this season's Fridays at Sunset Festival in Kanawha Plaza on May 28 at 6 p.m. $20.
