Butcher Brown has been added as direct support for jazz star Kamasi Washington’s national tour this fall and winter. An incredibly dynamic collective, Butcher Brown reveals jazz, funk, and hip-hop influences swirling together into an incredible groove. A recent late-night show at the Blue Note saw a line out the door of young fans, playing a sweaty packed two-hour set. Already this year, the band has played both jam band festival Lock’n and indie rock fest Otis Mountain and did a live Paste Magazine session. NPR says, "The young quartet traffics in loose, groove-based instrumentals, often laid-back and with a healthy dose of boom-boom-chick." Here they are performing “Street Pharmacy” live at the Paste studio.

Today marks the release of “Camden Square,” the first single from ‘Camden Session,’ which was recorded at Mark Ronson’s London studio.

Part of a new wave of young jazz mixing the genre with other influences, the band has been described notably as “hip-hop Mahavishnu.” Multi-instrumentalist Devonne Harris aka DJ Harrison played keys and synths on Jack White’s latest album “Boarding House Reach” and took part in his third collaborative Playlist Retreat, headed by DJ Jazzy Jeff. A percussion prodigy turned international jazz sideman, drummer Corey Fonville’s national performance career began when he was just 14, with a 2005 appearance on Late Night with David Letterman. The group also features trumpeter and saxophone player Marcus Tenney; wunderkind guitarist Morgan Burrs; bassist Andrew Randazzo.
