The Chronicles released their long-awaited, self-titled, debut studio album last Friday (December 14) at the Bayou Café in Albany. Combining jazz, hip-hop, funk, soul and gospel, the Chronicles have been a staple on the Capital Region since their founding in 2009 by upstate horn heavyweights Bryan Brundige and Jeff Nania.

They have appeared at many regional music festivals including the Riverfront Jazz Festival, Albany Tulip Festival, Bella Terra, African American Heritage Day, the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival and the BeatShot Music Festival.
