As the daughter of a blues musician, Chastity Brown was born with an innate ability to channel wrenching circumstances into beautiful, uplifting songs. 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. She’s been featured on NPR’s “Favorite Sessions,” CMT, American Songwriter, the London Times, Paste Magazine and others. Chastity has toured the U.S. and abroad, appearing on the U.K.’s Later…with Jools Holland.
Her 2020 album, Sing to the Walls is a sonically expansive album; it digs down deep into the roots of Americana, folk, and soul music, but Chastity’s stories are delivered in a style that feels remarkably timely, modern, and forward-thinking.
With his deep, beyond-his-years original lyrics and melodies, raw, soulful vocals, and powerful live performances, Sawyer seemed an unlikely match for reality TV, but he won season 8 of NBC’s The Voice. Fredericks’s honest and elegantly stripped down style, a self-described “free range folk”, incorporates elements of blues, roots rock, and jazz.
On May 1, 2020 Fredericks released his fourth album, Flowers For You. Since the release of the album, “Born” has been in rotation on SiriusXM’s Coffee House channel and was covered by Amazon Music’s editorial ‘Fresh Folk and Americana’ playlist. Throughout his career, Sawyer has played many festivals and prestigious venues like the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival with 2019 touring highlights including official showcases at SXSW, AmericanaFest, Folk Alliance International, and BMI’s Island Hopper Songwriter Fest.
