Chastity Brown will play the Fitzgerald Theatre on 6/2


Somehow, Chastity Brown has become my unicorn. A mythical artist, who I am chasing (in a journalistic, most definitely non-creepy way) but for various reasons never seem to catch live. Well, it looks like my luck is about to change, as Brown is celebrating the release of her new album “Silhouette of Sirens” her first on Red House Records this Friday 6/2 at the Fitzgerald Theatre. A few tickets are still available HERE

An artist who can plumb the depths of sadness in a single note, then release it in the very next breath, Chastity Brown melds folk, pop and soul on her Red House debut, Silhouette of Sirens, weaving together a poet’s lyrical ear and a soul-laid-bare quality. The album’s 10 original tracks introduce us to a new voice – a songwriter of power and conviction who isn’t afraid to bare her heart as she sings of heartbreak, need and love.

Based in Minnesota, but with roots in Tennessee, Chastity grew up surrounded by country and soul music. In the full gospel church of her childhood, she played saxophone and drums and found her singing voice and a passion for music. Her first show was in Knoxville, TN, and then it was on to Minneapolis. Since then, she’s been featured on NPR’s “Favorite Sessions,” CMT, American Songwriter, The London Times, Paste Magazine and others. Chastity has toured the US and abroad, appearing on the UK’s Later…with Jools Holland. For much of 2016, she toured alongside folk icon/ activist Ani Difranco.
