AnnArbor.com Summer Concert Series to showcase bands from Neutral Zone
The acts set to perform Friday are:
• Teen singer songwriter Oren Levin
• Socially concious hip-hop artist Delegate
• Ann Arbor funk-rock band And the Elephant
Oren Levin is a multi-instrumentalist from Ann Arbor. A sophomore at Community High School, he focuses on piano and guitar along with vocals. He is interested in many genres of music, playing mostly jazz piano and blues/folk guitar. He appears solo, and in an acoustic duo with Isaac Scobey-Thal performing a few covers and new originals. Oren recently played at Breakin’ Curfew 2012 with the rock band The Ins and Outs.
David “Delegate” Clair represents a new era of experimental hip-hop. His music is all about letting the audience connect with him on a personal level. “Hip-hop is my passion because it helps me escape from a troubled life,” Delegate says. “It helps me vocalize and speak out about abuse and the effects that it had on me.” His relatability comes from his experiences, which he draws on to write his raps and connect with his audiences.
The Youth Owned Records showcase will start at noon Friday, June 29 on the patio of the AnnArbor.com Community Space at 301 E. Liberty Street, at Fifth Avenue. The AnnArbor.com Summer Concert Series continues at noon Fridays throughout the season; check out the website for more information.
