BUTCHER BROWN DELIVERS ALBUM #KINGBUTCH ON SEPTEMBER 18



MAJOR LABEL DEBUT ON CONCORD JAZZ

Album Marks Career Breakthrough For Richmond, VA Powerhouse

Mix of Songs, Beats, Rhymes, and Grooves Foretells Jazz/Hip-Hop Future

#KingButchhashtag proudly attached—is the title of Butcher Brown’s soon-to-be top-trending album, the eighth in the band’s up-from-the-roots legacy, and their first with Concord Records, on the Concord Jazz imprint. The 13 tracks collectively represent a bold step forward for the 5-piece group from Richmond, Virginia. Remaining true to the group’s heady fusion of contemporary hip-hop, ‘70s fusion, ‘60s jazz and funk—even echoes of Southern rock and marching band music show up—#KingButch is a powerfully original statement that reaches across divisions of genre, generation, ethnicity, and geography. Significantly, the new recording also reveals a side of Butcher Brown that’s been developing and is now in full-flower: a song-crafting, studio maturity on a par with their national reputation as an explosive live act.
