Acclaimed singer, songwriter James Stanley to perform at Sundilla April 5


Special to the
Opelika Observer

American singer and songwriter James Lee Stanley returns to Sundilla on April 5.
Stanley’s career is basically a list of highlights. His 1998 album “Freelance Human Being” is described by FI Magazine as “one of the top 200 recordings of all time.” He has toured with Bonnie Raitt, Robin Williams, Nicolette Larson and comedian Steven Wright’s opening act.
Stanley’s acoustic recordings of rock classics (All Wood and Stones; All Wood and Doors; the upcoming All Wood and Led) are revolutionary. He recently recorded a soundtrack for a book and has acting experience, starring in 13 episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
In a review by the New York culture magazine Village Voice, an author wrote that Stanley’s music is “simple, really. With (Stanley) you get great songs, great guitar playing, great voice and a gifted comedian as well. You are in for a very entertaining evening.”
Advance tickets cost $15 and can be purchased at Spicer’s Music, World Cup Coffee or online at Day-of admission costs $20.
Free coffee, tea, water and food will be available, and attendees are welcome to bring their own favorite food or beverage.
Showtime at the Auburn Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is set for 7:30 p.m. The venue is located at 450 E. Thach Ave.
