  1. Listen Chastity Brown In-Studio

    Mar 14, 2012 Chastity Brown performs in The Current studio.

Chastity Brown has been absent from Minnesota for a little while, but there's a good reason for it. Knoxville born and raised and a Minneapolis transplant, the inspiration for her latest album Back-Road Highways largely came with her roots. Tennessee and the South in general have helped shape Brown's newest sound, one which pushes her into new territory, both lyrically and instrumentally.

With a full backing band featuring members of No Bird Sing, Hildur Victoria, Heiruspecs and the great percussionist Michael X, the group has seasoned members from all walks of life, and this record illustrates a composition process which allows every musician to shine.

Songs performed: "Slow Time," "Say It," and "After You"
