Gravel Road Touring
Chastity Brown has been called “..a roots soul singer of the first order.” Considered one of the most exciting writer/artists to hit the Minneapolis music scene, Brown recently returned from a tour of the East Coast, including New York City, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Washington D.C. where she performed at the sold-out 2011 Congressional Blues Festival. She is currently in the studio recording for C & D Music Network in Nashville where she is steadily building a loyal following. In midst of releasing her solo works, Chastity and her bandmates, Michael X. (percussion), Adam Wozniak (of Dark Dark Dark, upright bass) and Nikki Schultz (backing vocals), have developed a creative camaraderie that yields a groove-based soul tonic. On their first album, *High Noon Teeth (released 6/2010)*, the quartet has concocted a powerful combination of roots, rhythm, and blues. The emotional improv at the heart of Chastity's storytelling, combined with her band's electrifying performances, has garnered attention from fans across the country. She has recently shared the stage with Angelique Kidjo, Raul Midon, Toshi Reagon, Nikka Costa, Jeremy Messersmith, and Dessa.
"...the quality of the work is head and shoulders above the vast majority of releases in the roots genre. The pure, raw emotion that this woman generates is something even veteran blues and soul artists could take a lesson from* -Duluth News Tribune, August 2011
*"...brings to mind a 21-st century version of Nina Simone." * * ** -Ross Rahaila, St. Paul Pioneer Press*
