Event description
Catch Alternative Hip-Hop artist Don Lifted at The Barton House in Memphis this September.

About this Event

On September 21st ​at 8:00pm, ​Visual​, Musical, and ​​Performance ​Artist Lawrence ​​Matthews​, also known as Don Lifted, will transform The Barton House visually and sonically​ with a performance featuring sculptural video installations and music from his recently released albums Alero and Contour. Audiences will be immersed in music performed live by Don and surrounded by swirling nostalgic imagery that follows the narrative of each song. Brand new Don Lifted merchandise will be available for purchase as well as special edition physical copies of the albums.

Production on his most recent album “Contour” began in Memphis in late 2015. In 2018, the record was finished and mastered in Hollywood​ by Grammy Award-winning Engineer Mike Bozzi (Flower Boy, Ctrl, Good Kid, Maad City, To Pimp A Butterfly, Damn, Blankface LP).

"Matthews is a multi-disciplinary creative with connections reaching deep into the Memphis art scene. Born in Memphis, his musical style incorporates hip-hop, alternative rock and electronic music resulting in emotionally vulnerable storytelling and eclectic production. A hot emerging artist, Matthew’s work began to garner acclaim before he had completed his Bachelor’s in Fine Art at University of Memphis, awarded the Deans and Department of Art Creative Achievement Award in 2015. In 2016, he was awarded the Arts Accelerator Grant from Arts Memphis. His performances helped inaugurate Crosstown Art’s new space in the Concourse and have been feature events at the Brooks Museum and Memphis College of Art. Matthews is also the program director of the Collective, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing the work of Black Memphis based artists."
