Chicago pianist Charlie Coffeen comes together with drummer Tyler Namberg and singer Angele Anise for an acoustic rendition of Kendrick Lamar’s “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. The music video was shot by Bradley Murray, Kristie Kahns, Ryan Schorr and David Burkart. “I’ve been wearing Kendrick’s album out since it dropped, and I had an idea to do a version of this song while I was on the road for some shows last month,” says Charlie. “Angéle is one of my favorite vocalists, and Tyler and I play together all the time. This line-up seemed like the right fit to do something special with this song, so we got together for a few hours at I.V. Lab in Chicago with some friends around to shoot the performance and ended up with this.” Charlie and Tyler are both members of Chicago hip-hop/soul/jazz band Sidewalk Chalk, which was named Best Chicago Hip-Hop Act of 2010 by Chicago Reader. Sidewalk Chalk is releasing its sophomore al bum, Leaves, on February 25th before touring across the US. Initial tour dates include Chicago at the Double Door (2/21), DROM in New York (2/22), and Hotel Cafe in LA (3/28).
