    Nov 21, 2012 Chastity Brown performs for the latest installment of the McNally Smith Soundbite Series.

As part of McNally Smith's ongoing Soundbite Series, Local Show host David Campbell once again sits down with another musician to dissect their work for an interview and live performance — this time from the rising Chastity Brown.

On the heels of Back-Road Highways earlier this year, the young singer has been growing her fan-base in the Twin Cities and abroad with her mix of southern soul, roots and country.

Thanks to McNally Smith student Joe Kimple for producing this installment of the Soundbite Series.

Songs performed: "When We Get There, "I Left Home," "Slow Time, "Lift Us," "On The Banks, "Man & Gun" and "After You"
