Joshua Asante [Sessions]

Spero’s next Sessions features Joshua Asante, of Amasa Hines and Velvet Kente, performing solo. Show begins at 8 PM with a $10 cover.


Correne Spero (aka Spero to friends) moved to Little Rock in 2010 from New York City where she released three albums and toured for a decade with her band Northern State. Spero plays in two Little Rock bands, SPERO and DOT, and has been putting the finishes touches on an album recorded with a bunch of talented Little Rock folks. Spero is also a member of 6-girl supergroup “Lucky Bitch” and will be facilitating a girls’ songwriting camp in Little Rock this summer.


Musician, photographer, a sometimes poet; art informs most aspects of Joshua Asante’s life. Joshua is a guitarist and lead vocalist for two bands, Velvet Kente and Amasa Hines. The latter of two released their first full-length album, All The World There Is, to widespread critical acclaim in early 2014. Whether he is behind a camera lens or onstage with a band, or even alone a poet; the aim remains the same. Clarity, positivity, and ascension through art.
