PILAR FRENCH CELEBRATES THE RELEASE OF HER LATEST EP, DELIVER, MARCH 17 AT THE LINCOLN CITY CULTURAL CENTER
Release Provided by Lincoln City Cultural Center
LINCOLN CITY — On March 17, at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, Portland-based singer-songwriter Pilar French will celebrate the release of her latest CD, “Deliver,” her third album overall. A six-song collection of heartfelt, warming pop-rock sprinkled with roots leanings, French takes a lighter approach on “Deliver”, following up on 2009’s Alive, an album that tackled life’s heavier subject matter.
Pilar is performing as part of the Siren Saturdays Concert Series, four Saturdays of female vocalists that celebrate Women’s History Month at the LCCC. On March 17, the doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 advance or $12 at the door. Call 541-994-9994 to reserve.
Recorded at 8-Ball Studios, and produced by French and Rob Stoup, French is joined by her band, Jeff Koch (guitar, guitanjo), Tony Howard (drums, vocals), and Sean Nowland (bass).
Discussing the optimistic vibe of Deliver compared to its predecessors (besides Alive, her debut album is 2007’s Butterflies), French comments, “The second record I did was a little bit heavier. It touched on heavier topics like human perseverance and the will to survive and overcome life challenges,” says French. “This CD is more about cherishing family, relationships and what you have as opposed to what you don’t have. The music is a little more light-hearted. It’s meant to make you feel happy and appreciate what you have. I wanted to write songs to remind me to appreciate what I have. You walk away from it with really positive vibes.”
