Chris Brown Band
Singer-Songwriter, Acoustic, and Rock (modern)
BeanRunner Cafe
201 S. Division Street @ Esther
Peekskill, NY   See Map
“Christopher Brown wins over audiences without gimmicks or bluster. He has an organic stage presence. All he needs are his honeyed rumble of a voice and an unteachable ability to make any song – a good-time sing-along of a favorite standard or a self-penned meditation on the passage of time – sound genuine and of the moment.” ~The Journal News

It’s not easy to be a working musician in the Greater New York City region but Christopher Brown has built several followings, as a solo coffeehouse artist, the leader of duos and trios, and as the voice of the Bookends band.

Brown, backed by his talented band will be showcasing songs from a brand new collection entitled, “Under a Gleason Moon”, his fourth CD release.

He writes tales of lessons learned and of taking stock through life’s journey. If you’ve lived a life – victories and defeats, good days and bad – you’ll recognize yourself in the songs of Christopher Brown.

"A brilliant singer and even more thoughtful lyricist” - H. Allen Williams, JazzTimes

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, vocalist Aimée Allen performs regularly in NYC and abroad. She has sung with such renowned musicians including Romero Lubambo, Ron McClure, François Moutin, Rozwell Rudd, Ari Hoenig, and Yomo Toro. And, her latest release, the critically acclaimed Wings Uncaged, is a musical statement of transcendence in all its facets. With a set of jazz standards and striking originals featuring winged creatures, negotiating the challenges and limitations of the natural world, the project provides metaphors for surviving perilous conditions in creative ways. It has been named one of Downbeat Magazine's Best of 2018.

“Allen will mesmerize you with her voice and style. Wings Uncaged is a vastly different experience than the standard vocal jazz fare, that offers depth and reverence, while pushing the idiom forward." - Steph Cosme, Staccotofy
