Eric Hughes has been playing on Beale Street for 16 years. But he found his faith in the Bluff City shaken after his guitars were stolen last year. In response, he decided to do what does best—music. He got his friends together and recorded an album. Singers Reba Russell and Susan Marshall, keyboard player Chris Stephenson, saxophonist Art Edmaiston, and trumpeteer Marc Franklin, along with bassist Leo Goff and drummer Brian Aylor, got together to create this tribute to their hometown. The album Meet Me In Memphis was the first project created with the help of the Slim House Front Loan, a program of the Memphis Slim House that provides low-interest loans to fund projects by Memphis musicians.
This Saturday, October 21, Hughes and company will throw a record release party for Meet Me In Memphis at the Warehouse on 36 Patterson Avenue. Here's the video for the title track, directed by Derrick Curran of Fifth Floor Productions.
