Chastity Brown will put a spell on you. Sweet as molasses and woodsmoke, clear and burning as summer sun, Chastity Brown casts magic. The Minneapolis based duo, the Ericksons, have been crafting their own unique style of soulful, honest, indie-folk music since 2006. Sisters Bethany Valentini and Jenny Kapernick’s emotive sound is inspiring, powerful and captivating.

Molly is considered by some the reigning queen of the Twin Cities music scene.
