The three-time Juno Award winner, Jarvis Church will perform at the Lyric Theatre Dec. 3.


 The soul singer, along with his eight-piece band, The Soul Station, has been touring Canada to support their latest album, Vol. 2: Songs of Curtis Mayfield, a Tribute.
Jarvis Church, born Gerald Eaton, is a Canadian R&B singer-songwriter and music producer, originally from Jamaica, and currently living in Los Angeles. He is the lead singer for the R&B-pop group The Philosopher Kings, which had reached its peak popularity in the late 1990s.
During the group’s seven-year hiatus, Eaton began a solo career, releasing the album Shake it Off in 2002 under the stage name, Jarvis Church.
From there, Church would go on to release two more solo albums, and began his collaboration with The Soul Station.
As a producer, Church has discovered Nelly Furtado and co-produced her debut album with his Philosopher Kings bandmate. He also discovered Canadian/Somalian rapper K’naan and co-wrote and co-produced his first two albums, the first of which was Juno-award winning, The Dusty Foot Philosopher.
Church has worn many different hats with distinction over his fascinatingly varied and highly successful musical career.
As stated by Church, “Through all the different genres I’ve worked in, the centre is soul. I consider myself a soul singer. I feel blessed that I can both produce and perform, but I love performing so much.  I’ve always loved being on stage.”
This is most definitely a show audiences will not want to miss. The third of four “Special Concerts” coming to the Lyric Theatre, Jarvis Church and The Soul Station will take the stage on Thursday, Dec. 3 at the Lyric Theatre. 
Tickets are $40 and available at Pharmasave.
Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the music will begin at 8:30 p.m.
