I started writing soulshowmike’s album picks with the purpose of highlighting indie artists of note. January’s column reviewed the best of 2020, and now the 2021 albums are rolling out. After experiencing Delvon Lamarr at the Roxian last January, it’s been a lonnnng wait for the new album. It was worth it. Here’s the February column in the Pittsburgh City Paper.
In 2018, I received a Heinz Endowments/Pgh Foundation grant to document the local music scene, particularly from the standpoint of a Person of Color. One of the outputs was a series of video shorts called “60 Seconds of Pittsburgh,” and the latest installment is the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio. It’s part of the February column. Enjoy.
