I was extremely lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with The Soulsville Foundation on multiple projects. They fight to keep the history of soul music alive and strive to do all they can for the community through music and mentorship. Working for an organization like that – one that stemmed from legendary Stax Records, and one that does so much great work today – is an honor, to say the least.
Stax Music Academy European Tour
In 1967, Stax-Volt Records went on a European tour that is considered by soul music fans to be one of the greatest lineups of artists ever to grace the stage. The famous recorded show in Oslo, Norway is still known as one of the greatest soul performances of all time.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of that show, the Stax Music Academy decided to do the same tour, with music from the original lineup, performed by their incredibly talented students. A tour like this needed a poster that would (like the gig itself) pay homage to the past – and, obviously, some T-shirts.
