October 21, 2014  

"Colorado" included in NPR Music's "Heavy Rotation" feature!

"Born in Tennessee, currently living in Minneapolis, and bringing listeners on a journey to "Colorado," Chastity Brown approaches music with a troubadour's spirit, never content to rest in one place or on one style for too long. She's currently traveling through the U.S. and Europe armed with only her guitar, divine keyboardist DeVon Gray, and her ability to distill Southern blues and plaintive North Country prairie influences into expansive, alluring folk songs. Those songs have earned her fans around the globe — including Jools Holland, who recently hosted her on his Later... show. With "Colorado" as the lead single, Brown's new album is due in the spring of 2015." —Andrea Swensson, The Current

Chastity announces first single off her upcoming album due out Spring 2015! 

Recorded with her band mates in Minneapolis, and produced with her guitarist, Robert Mulrennan, "Colorado" is Chastity Brown at her best: full of roots, grit, and catchy-as-hell melody. "Colorado" is an ode to time spent being on the road and to Chastity's wonderment of the natural world. 

The track will be released on September 15, and is featured in a new music video filmed by Nate Ryan. Chastity and the band will be launching a Kickstarter campaign in September and are asking for your support!

MN Monthly highlights Chastity's 7/25 New Century Theatre show!
"She manages to evoke a timeless America, in which desolate country roads and teeming city streets occupy the same imaginative space and territory of the heart—she shares more than a hairstyle with a young Dylan. She’s also pretty much the definition of an up-and-comer: Brown is a charismatic star-in-the-making who feels as though she could go nova any time now."
