Enigmatic pop songwriter Derik Hultquist new material from his 12-track debut "Southern Iron" on Aug. 12 at The Kent Stage, starting at 8 p.m.

Hultquist channels the emotion of losing two family members to cancer in the last year and watching his father battle the disease. He'll be backed with a three-piece band, creating a troubadour psychedelia mix set to the tune of deep, visceral lyrics.

On the album, Hultquist merges the brain power of producers Frank Liddell (Brandi Carlile, Aubrie Sellers) and Eric Masse (Rayland Baxter, Andrew Combs, Mikky Ekko), creating a mix of classic production and aural atmospheres.Friends Rayland Baxter and Matthew Logan Vasquez weave their sultry vocals in and out of the record, which can be heard in full, backed by Hultquist's band throughout the tour.

The Kent Stage is at 175 E. Main St.
