Phenomenal singer, songwriter and guitarist Raul Midon is ready to excite audiences at Harlow’s at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
The musician will bring his sensational vocals to the stage for one night as a part of the tour for his new album, “Synthesis.”
Midon’s sound is a fusion of jazz, soul and pop music steeped in Latin influence. Critics have often compared his vocal style and talent to the likes of Stevie Wonder and Donnie Hathaway. Yet this artist is by no means a replica of those musicians. Instead, Midon is a certifiably unique talent and in a league of his own.
He has a distinct sound that’s raw, clear and precise – a musical message that cannot be understood by merely reading the lyrics to his songs. According to Midon, his message transcends simple words and themes.
“‘Synthesis’ is a collection of stories about different characters…it’s not one message and not so much a concept,” Midon said. “But, there’s a musical message. I’ve been interested in combining different musical elements. The love songs are a little more spiritual too.
“I’m interested in a lot of different music,” he added. “So, it doesn’t fit into a specific genre, it’s a little Brazilian, soul, pop and jazz.”
His live performances are energetic and filled with surprises. Midon’s guitar-laced songs and extraordinary vocals are a soul-stirring combination that is sure to please audiences. Sacramento can expect a musician who is passionate about his craft – a musical virtuoso and a remarkably innovative performer.
“I’ll play songs from the new record on Saturday,” Midon said. “I’m a performer that does something differently every time. I like to try to be spontaneous with my songs. Anything goes—it’s the jazz element of improvisation.”
The concert this weekend will surely be dubbed, “The Raul Midon Experience.” And the experience will truly be one not to miss!
