Bill Withers Canberra

Event Details

From “Lovely Day” to “Ain’t No Sunshine” and “Lean On Me”.

Bill Withers was known for his “smooth” baritone vocals and “sumptuous” soul arrangements. He wrote some of the most covered songs of the 1970s, including “Lean on Me” and “Ain’t No Sunshine”.

The former entered the Hot 100 chart through multiple versions, including Club Nouveau’s 1987 cover, which made the composition one of nine songs to have led the chart via different acts. With “Lovely Day”, he set the record for the longest sustained note on a chart hit on American charts, holding a high E for 18 seconds.

Pat Powell is also a baritone and is known for his smooth vocals, so this is a match made in heaven for lovers of Bill’s songs and given the correct level of respect along with a cracking band The Soul Brothers will take you to that special place in your heart reserved only for the best.
