Chuckie Campbell & The Phaction have announced that their promotional tour for their new album, ‘Taking Back Tomorrow,’ will run through September 5, primarily across the western United States. The award-winning Buffalo hip hop artist is set to complete his current tour on September 4 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Chuckie Campbell & The Phaction’s North American Summer Tour: The West also features fellow Buffalo hip-hop-rap-new school artist, G Premacy, who’s performing selective tracks from his album, The Move.
‘Taking Back Tomorrow’ features some of today’s most groundbreaking voices, including Iesha Green (who shares songwriting credits with Rihanna) and Heidi Feek (the daughter of country music stars,
Joey and Rory Feek). They’re matched with multiple legendary hip hop names, including Ras Kass (who Pitchfork called one of the greatest rappers of all time) and Talib Kweli (an independent hip hop pioneer and former Rawkus Records emcee, who also co-created the famed hip hop super duo, Black Star). All shows associated and scheduled as a part of ‘The Taking Back Tomorrow’ tour, which will play in both national and international cities, are set to support the album’s release.
In the past, Campbell’s work has received multiple five star reviews, playlist picks and album of the week selections. For live performances, the hip hop artist works with his live band, Chuckie Campbell & The Phaction. With David “Teaspoon” Hulett on drums, Naheem Shabazz and Shawn West on trombone and Emilio Virella on the trumpet, Chuckie Campbell & The Phaction make for a dynamic, powerful and eclectic approach to hip hop. The band’s music is filled with fluid instrumentation, lush musical arrangements and heartfelt poetic nuance.
