SIDEWALK CHALK’S ‘AN ORCHID IS BORN’ ALBUM
The Chicago-based Hip-Hop-funk-jazz guru Sidewalk Chalk re-emerged in 2017. Following an absence which lasted nearly five years, and their remarkable return couldn’t have come at a better time.
With the world seemingly in shambles and an authoritarian dictatorship in place, the six-piece bandexplores an array of moods most Americans are feeling right now on their new album, An Orchid is Born. The 16-track project is split into three parts which are The Hope, The Loss and The Birth. They dives into race, religion, politics and spirituality, with singles such as “Dig” and “A Suite For Black Lives.” This masterpiece was produced by Grammy Award-winning artist Robert “Sput” Searight. Listen below to An Orchid is Born.
