U of A's Hill Records Hosts Free Nov. 9 Artist Showcase at George's Majestic

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Hill Records, University of Arkansas’ student-run record label, will host its debut showcase at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9. This all-ages event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 p.m. 

The showcase features three local acts that were hand-selected by the Hill Records team following their spring 2020 submission call: Pat Ryan Key, Foxpaw and H3ADCANNON.

Award-winning songwriter and record producer Pat Ryan Key showcases a unique blend of “funky Muscle Shoals groove, Stax Records soul and Northwest Arkansas roots,” per Sean Clancy of The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Key credits authenticity as his driving force, exhibiting a “variety of music flavor profiles [that] keeps the listener engaged,” according to The Brain Drain Ditch.

Foxpaw, the alternative folk solo project orchestrated by songwriter, performer, and producer Chandler B., aims to sonically recount years of exploration throughout the southern United States. Foxpaw invites listeners to share in vivid representations and memories of diverse landscapes to create an intimate listening space.

Sam Byrd and Dyl Wil of H3ADCANNON declare their music to be “wildly inventive and high energy, inspired by Max Martin, Brittney Spears and Elton John. It teems with electropop production, metalcore breaks, and pop punk vocals for a fresh new sound.”
