About Chastity Brown
Tennessee-raised, Minneapolis-based soul-songstress Chastity Brown has an alluring tendency to turn heads and hold audiences captive with her jazz-tinged folk compositions, mesmerizing voice and expressive acoustic guitar. She has released two full-length albums, one recorded live on television and her sophomore disc, Sankofa, was recorded solo in the studio.
In midst of releasing her solo works, Chastity and her bandmates, Michael X. (percussion), Adam Wozniak (of Tarlton, upright bass) and Nikki Schultz (backing vocals), have developed a creative camaraderie that yields a groove-based soul tonic equal parts call and response, gritty gospel, and hypnotic vocal pairings. On their first album, High Noon Teeth, the quartet has concocted a powerful combination of roots, rhythm, and blues grounded in Chastity's emotive storytelling. Pushing beyond the guttural growls and percussive guitar techniques in her solo performances, Chastity's band takes her folk roots to an electrifying, energy packed level.
