You might recognize young Javier Colon as the initial winner of the television show The Voice, but Colon has been bringing his “acoustic soul” style of music to audiences before that as a member of both the funk band EMCQ and the Derek Trucks Band. Deciding to take on his own solo career, he has created his own unique style of music blending R&B, folk, soul, rock, and country with his stunningly soulful voice, uncanny writing ability, and a commanding stage presence. With a handful of solo recordings, including the 2016 release Gravity, he has currently embarked on an extensive tour schedule taking him across the country.
Javier Colon’s Gravity tour will make a stop in Portland on Monday, May 16, at Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi Avenue, at 7:30 pm. This is a 21 & over show, with tickets going for $17.50 advance through ticketfly.com or $20.00 day of show.
