NORMAN — Oklahoma native Steve Weichert, whose music has been described as "soulful folk ballads with a jazz twist,” will be the featured artist at The Performing Arts Studio’s Sunday Winter Wind concert.

Weichert is a University of Oklahoma alumnus who lives in Austin, Texas.

"Returning to Norman is always special to me — so many memories,” Weichert said in a news release announcing the concert. "Some parts of Norman are still the same as when I went to school there, and I love that.”

Growing up in Tulsa, music was always a part of Weichert’s home environment. "We listened to old-time gospel, big-band swing, folk and country, as well as stage and screen musicals, the Beatles and Johnny Mathis,” he said.

Weichert began his musical training on the clarinet. When he was a junior in high school, he received a Gibson acoustic guitar and wrote his first song less than a year later. His early influences included Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Pete Seeger.
