Lyfe Jennings @The Stage on Bay

WHILE serving a ten-year prison sentence for arson, Lyfe Jennings found his voice as a songwriter. Inspired by Erykah Badu—her Baduizm found its way into Jennings' cell in 1997—Jennings was released in 2002 and immediately recorded a demo and began performing in clubs.

His signature falsetto, insightful lyrics, and acoustic guitar caught the eye of Columbia Records; the label released Jennings’ debut album in 2004. He followed with 2006’s The Phoenix, which featured guests like Three 6 Mafia and Young Buck.

Jennings claimed 2010’s Sooner or Later would be his last album and invited spcial guests like Ludacris, Fabolous, Bryan-Michael Cox, Jazmine Sullivan, and more for features on the tracks. He released the Billboard-charting Lucid in 2013 and followed up with 2015’s Tree of Lyfe.

Saturday, July 15, doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m., $30-52 via savconcerts.com, all-ages
