SIDEWALK CHALK

SIDEWALK CHALK

Sidewalk Chalk continues to lead the contemporary evolution of hip-hop, soul, and jazz. The band’s third album, Shoulder Season, is compiled from seven live performances across the US. Its title signifies transition, a time in between two places, a feeling of expectation for what is to come. Sidewalk Chalk’s roots are firmly planted in Chicago where all eight members bring their respective talents together to update a sound first heralded in the Native Tongues era but never so musically diverse. The group’s unique arrangement allows them to incorporate numerous styles seamlessly: an MC and female vocalist; a trio of keys, bass, and drums; a horn section with trombone and trumpet; and a tap-dancer.

In the jazz world she has worked with and performed for the likes of Esperanza Spalding, Fred Hersch, Vijay Iyer, Jason Moran, Luciana Souza, and Dave Holland to name just a few.
