Coffee With Creatives | Marquise Knox & Alonzo Townsend

Wed Jun 19
12:30pm
@ Grand Ballroom

Two St. Louis blues and music insiders put their heads together in creating a new legacy for St. Louis.

Singer-guitarist Marquise Knox, a favorite on the blues scene, and Alonzo Townsend, former Broadway Oyster Bar manager and son of the late Grammy-winning St. Louis blues legend Henry Townsend, are behind a new music label, Knox Entertainment.

They serve as co-CEOs of Knox Entertainment, which will see its first release Aug. 4, 2017, with Knox’s 4th album, “Black and Blue.”

Digital will be the bread and butter,” says Townsend, who believes blues artists have been slow to release their music digitally, “not taking advantage of the opportunities they have.”

Speaking Topics Include:

  • How to execute being an Independent Artists and utilizing Digital Media to your full advantage.
  • Why it's important to grow the environment around you and cultivate the city you come from musically.
  • How to successfully book and market YOURSELF.
  • Life and stories of being a band leader.
  • Can a young man play the blues and why the blues is so important
  • Growing up under a legend (Henry Townsend)
