Chastity Brown to play Neptune Theatre on April 14 on tour with poet Andrea Gibson

Chastity Brown will join award-winning queer poet Andrea Gibson on her extensive 2018 North American tour (northwest dates are below). Her music brings together blues, folk, R&B and soul and embraces the political, covering topics of identity and belonging.

“What I’ve realized is that the personal is political,” she said in a recent interview. “Just by me being a bi-racial, half-black, half-white woman living in America right now is political. Just being a person of color, a queer woman of color, for that matter, is freaking political.”

Silhouette of Sirens is comprised of snapshots of memory, both lived and imagined,” she says. “Some are love/sex/relationship-inspired, which in my opinion make the pain one might experience more bearable. In James Baldwin’s essay, ‘The Artist Struggle for Integrity,’ he says, ‘I tell you my pain so that I might relieve you of yours.’ I write for and from the marginalized experience,” Brown says. “For the truly triumphant spirit that’s been through some shit, and has fought her/his way through it to maintain a sense of dignity and peace of mind. My hope is like that of Alice Walker’s, ‘Where there are tears, there will be dancing.’”
