Every week, we present a curated list of live music in a wide range of genres all around the Valley. This week we focus on singers with soul.

March 22
Fans of the gravel-voiced Chris Daughtry believe that this North Carolina-based post-grunge five-piece is actually a solo project. But honestly, how were fans supposed to know that the fifth season American Idol finalist had a band if they didn’t use his name? 7:30 p.m., $45-$349, Marquee Theatre, 730 N. Mill Ave., Tempe, 480-829-0607, luckymanonline.com.

March 24
Loudon Wainwright III
For over five decades, the folk singer (and father of artists Rufus and Martha) has written humorous and honest albums about his life. Now you can see him perform them inside one of the best-sounding venues in town. 7:30 p.m., $38.50-$44.50, Musical Instrument Museum. 4725 E. Mayo Blvd., Phoenix, 480-478-6000, mim.org.

Smith were on the top of the charts has a Christian musician had so much success, and the Oklahoma band doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. 7 p.m. $23.75-$150. Gila River Arena, 29400 W. Maryland Ave., Glendale, 623-772-3200, gilariverarena.com.
