Chuckie Campbell & The Phaction are set to embark on a 24 city promotional tour for their new album, "Taking Back Tomorrow." The tour is set to run July 30th-September 5th across the western United States and finish in San Jose, Costa Rica.
Taking Back Tomorrow, upon release, will feature some of today's most groundbreaking voices, including Iesha Green (sharing songwriting credits with Rihanna) and Heidi Feek (daughter of country music stars, Joey and Rory Feek), while matching them with legendary hip hop names, such as Ras Kass (who Pitchfork called one of the greatest rappers of all time) and Talib Kweli (independent hip hop pioneer and former Rawkus Records emcee and co-creator of the famed hip hop super duo Black Star), among many others. All shows associated and scheduled as a part of "The Taking Back Tomorrow Tour," an ambitious routing that will touch cities nationally and internationally, are set to support the album as it prepares for release.
We hope that when we visit your city, you'll come join us at your local brewery, pub, music hall, or music festival. Our routing and remaining dates are posted below:
In the past, Campbell's work has received multiple five star reviews, playlist picks, and album of the week selections, while finding coverage from some of the country's largest national media outlets, such as the Huffington Post, The Source, and Young Hollywood. For live performances, he combines with a live band to form 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, filled with fluid instrumentation, lush musical arrangements, and heartfelt poetic nuance.

Music's Colorado Solo Artist of the Year, performing selective tracks from his own stellar release, The Move.
