The Society of Broken Souls to perform at IW

Sep 21, 2017

The Society of Broken Souls Dennis James and Lauryn Shapter will perform on Oct. 7, from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Iowa Wesleyan University’s chapel, 601 N. Main Street.

Performing their own brand of American Roots Music, James and Shapter write unflinching songs that confront our shared, raw humanity while celebrating the beautiful mosaic of the human experience. Having performed in 25 states from coast to coast over the last decade, their live show features seamless harmony vocals and a wide array of instruments and sounds. From stripped down, bare-bones acoustic arrangements to a denser and edgier electric sound, their songs invite the listener to walk through the fire with them and to find freedom, strength and courage on the other side.

“Soulful sounds, solid musicianship and poetic, honest lyrics are their hallmark of performances,” Professor of Art Ann Klingensmith said.

The performance is sponsored by the Art & Digital Media Design Departments at Iowa Wesleyan University. To learn more about the performers, please visit
