Sean C. Johnson lends his soulful sound to inspire the masses.
Music Louis Fowler
Neo-gospel singer Sean C. Johnson has always been a music fan, but it wasn’t until hearing a ’60s soul legend on a record player by chance that he decided, right then and there, that was what he wanted to do with his life.
Chicago the musical hits the marquee of the Civic Center Music Hall — and a nearly sold-out run.

Chicago, the award-winning national touring musical revival, is a
spectacular treat for Oklahoma City. This is the longest-running
American musical in Broadway history, and its sleek, jazzy, fun, dark,
sexy, amazing songs and dances, along with its high-energy performances,
will make for a memorable night for those lucky enough to see it.

Luna Moth is no stranger to experimentation. Joey Paz’s Norman-based project began in 2010 with Shamanic Youth, a 10-track exploration of layered guitar and pop deconstruction, but has since evolved into a fleshed-out four-piece. And while the ideas implemented have traversed a diverse range of genres, its conceptual foundation largely remains unchanged.
Electronica Zach Hale
Much of Tallows’ 2013 album, Memory Marrow, seems ripe for the remix treatment. “Soft Water,” however, would probably be the most daunting prospect for a producer to tackle, if for no other reason than it’s probably the record’s most organic, guitar-driven song.

For a band so prolific, ambitious and endearingly experimental, it’s a wonder that more Flaming Lips side projects haven’t emerged over the years. Several dozen collaborations have come and gone, but rarely anything that wasn’t released under the official Lips’ umbrella. It makes sense, given that the Oklahoma natives have never shied away from casting a wide net in its 30-odd years.
Jazz Joshua Boydston Every artist should be the star of their own creative life, which makes Kyle Reid’s steps out of the shadows of the many ensembles and supporting roles he has played in Oklahoma bands over the years to front and center on stage feel like a just journey.
