Music Under Glass: Lester Rey
August 28, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us on the 4th Wednesday of July through October to enjoy FREE live music in our next installment of Music Under Glass.
We have a great line-up for all ages! This month, enjoy the Lester Rey : Epifania – celebrated Chicago artist performing neo Latin Soul.
Lester Rey is a versatile soul crooner for a contemporary audience, a fearless wordsmith, and musical innovator. His use of percussion, poetic lyricism, and hypnotizing vocal range has made him a standout solo artist since the release of his debut EP “Blue Lion.” A forward-thinking collaborative project bringing together Djs and Producers worldwide to remix his already contemporary approach on Boogaloo and Latin Soul. While the “Blue Lion” collection was a sonic, cultural journey into his upbringing as a Puerto Rican in Chicago, his soulful “Promesa” mixtape, captured Latinx political despair and exhibited his ability to effortlessly travel between musical soundscapes. Most recently, “Ni Santa,” Lester’s alternative Reggaeton approach dubbed Neo-Perreo features the first Latinx Trans rapper Lila Star and makes a bold statement about love, sex, and inclusivity in Reggaeton and the modern Urbanx phenomenon.
