The Community Center for the Performing Arts and University of Oregon Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA welcomes Grammy nominated Brent Faiyaz (born Christopher Brent Woods) to its stage for a night of R&B and newly released music.  The FTW tour kicks off in our very own Eugene, OR on Wednesday, March 18th and will eventually conclude at Varsity Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Released on February 7th, Faiyaz’s new album welcomed ten new tracks to the world that are full of calming beats and smooth vocals that melt into one another.  In songs like “FTW (Summer in London)” deep distorted voices open the song up to highlight Faiyaz’s harmonic vocals throughout the tune.  Catchy lyrics in this particular song speak of his relationship with those all around him and the world as a whole.

Lovers of artists like Steve Lacy and SiR will vibe along just fine with the new album Fiyaz has just released after three long years of silence. The FTW album follows Sonder Son which was dropped three years ago in 2017. Many will also recognize his voice on the single “Crew” by Goldlink, which Faiyaz was a collaborator on and as a result was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Performance in 2017.

Faiyaz, like many others in the music world, got their start on Soundcloud, but now he’s hitting the stages on a North American tour across the states. You won’t want to miss out on this show. See him before he lifts off even further in the Rap and R&B world.

Doors open at 7:00 pm and the show starts at 8:00 with an opening performance by Atlanta rapper Grip, who will be accompanying Faiyaz on all dates.  

Tickets are $20 and advance purchase is very much recommended as most of the tour dates have already sold out.

The W.O.W. Hall will comply with all COVID-19 Guidelines issued by the State of Oregon and the CDC at the time of the event. This may entail limitations on capacity that might be lower than the number of tickets sold and/or event cancellation.
