Our series of installments highlighting June’s Black Music Month artist musician interviews continues. For the upcoming BAMSFest, we have Butcher Brown’s percussionist, Corey Fonville. Corey sat down and shared a few minutes with us providing insight into his role in a unit of five producers. Butcher Brown originates from Richmond, Virginia and is inspired by a variety of music genres. From Jazz to Blues, Hip-Hop to  Electronic music, you name it, Butcher Brown incorporates it. Butcher Brown tries to include all music artforms for they have been inspired by music as a culture and not as a sub genre. This was displayed on their debut album in 2014 named, All Purpose Music.

Corey Fonville thoroughly enjoys music, but highly respects all who contributed to not only his growth but the growth of the drummer culture as a whole. Corey discussed his love for music, when and why he started drumming, who and what helped him develop his style, and how Butcher Brown was able to just take their love and passion and apply it in a way that rewards them by going to different cities and performing for people. 

Corey along with his Butcher Brown brethren will be taking BAMSFest’s stage in Boston, Massachusetts June 29th at Franklin Park Playstead Field. BAMSFest stands for Boston Arts & Music Soul Festival   For more information about this festival and other scheduled local and national acts go to
