Saxophonist Kris Brownlee who frequently tours in the Chicago

A Fort Wayne (Indiana) native, Brownlee is wrapping up recording of his third full-length, entitled Sincerely Yours, with a release date planned for this Fall, Palmer said. Collaborating with legendary guitarist Freddie Fox and Grammy Award-winning producer Michael Broening, Brownlee often plays multiple instruments on each album track. The accent-filled groove, "Halo" has already leaked and gotten early radio airplay, reports 91.1 FM The Globe.
With a degree in music performance and psychology from Manchester College in North Manchester, Indiana, Kris Brownlee has played with the likes of blues artist Willie Kent, former Duke Ellington saxophonist Stephen Foster, and internationally known trombonist Jiggs Whigham. "Over the past 25 years of playing, I've been influenced by many, but none more than by saxophonist Boney James," Brownlee said.
