Soul filled folk songwriter of power and conviction
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 in her role as a songwriter of power and conviction who isn't afraid to bare her heart as she sings of heartbreak, need and love. Hailing from Tennessee, but now based out of Minnesota, the influence of the soul music of her childhood is easy to hear in her poetic songs filled with emotion and lived experience.

"Chastity Brown approaches music with a troubadour's spirit, never content to rest in one place or on one style for too long.- NPR SONGS WE LOVE"

Ben Bedford has established himself as a songwriter in the tradition of musical icons ranging from Bill Morrissey to Woody Guthrie, casting individual people in the theater of the American landscape. A true son of the heartland, Bedford dips into the deep inkwell of classic American literature and writes with the 'old soul' quality of his literary idols, such as John Steinbeck and Toni Morrison. Bedford's songs bear an indelible sense of place, no doubt owing to his roots - based in Illinois, Bedford finds his muse in the landscape, people, and diction of the midwest.

"Bedford displays a technical veracity in combining emotional morsels with actual facts to blend the truth of history with the truth of mystery. This makes for interestingly complicated songs that defy easy categorization or quick listens." -Tom Irwin, The Illinois Times"
