Speaking of ATL talent, please check out the album, IS, by local vocalist/guitarist, Chilton and his band TeksBukSeks (read: "textbook sex"). Don't let the "GQ poses" fool you 'cause the album is a gritty mix of funk, rock, and soul yet still eclectic enough not to sound like the same type of material that fits these categories by the many artists who end up sounding the same. The lyrics are definitely unique, but you can still relate and that's a good thing. I've seen him perform in person enough to say that it is an entertaining experience 'cause he acts the fool on stage, but it doesn't take away from he and his band's overall talent.

There was a time when R&B was made by Men's Men like Wilson Pickett, Sly and his Family, Earth, Wind and Fire, and Prince. Sometime after this it took a decade-and-a-half dip into guys singing through their noses to programmed drums (did somebody say Boyz II Men?) and frontin' gangsta rap that wasn't representin' nuthin' but nuthin'. Finally the genre returns home to pure get-down guitar and kick-in-the-ass drums on Chilton's debut, IS. It IS new, it IS different, and if you're wise it IS in your record collection.

Breathe taking, absolutly breathe taking! Of all the CD's that I have bought this year. Jill Scotts', Van Hunt's, Prince's. This is by far my favorite. I just can't believe where he takes his thoughts musically and lyrically. I think he could single handedly save R&B radio if he ever got the chance to be on there. However I think that he is too good for any sort of format and so his biggest strength is also his biggest weakness. I love this CD and I hope I get the chance to see him live. - cdbaby.com


WHY WE LIKE HIM:

Chilton brings back the funk to the music scene. His signature "You are as you love" songwriting style combined with his edgy guitar bends, Chilton is a great fusion of the 70's and the new millenium. Check out Chilton at www.chiltonmusic.com - Written Magazine


Keep your eyes open and calendars free because singer, songwriter, and producer, Chilton will soon become a household name. He is a new and upcoming artist performing with his band TexBukSex at local Atlanta clubs and other concerts throughout the country. With a mix of funk, r &b, and rock, his music has woed the hearts of fans internationally.

Talent has spoken once again and has gotten the attention of fans from the United States to Germany. Now living in Marietta, GA, Chilton has created a masterpiece of acoustic sounds. His music has a relaxing feel that keeps you wanting to hear more. This brother has the voice and musical lyrics of a genius, and not to mention ladies, very easy on the eyes.


Chilton has toured with Speech (former member of Arrested Development) and made appearances on BET and Late Show with Conan O’Brien; that’s pretty impressive to start out, huh? Well, it gets better. In 1999, he founded a website chiltonmusic.com and in 2003, he founded Chiltonmusic.com Records, both sites allowing him to release his music to the public and purchase as well. Chilton’s CD is entitled, IS, with the simple theme of love.

Bio

"Is" the debut cd from underground funk pioneer Chilton is his first full length release. A potent mix of Funk, R&B, Soul and Rock. There is nothing else like it on the music scene today.
Chilton tours with the support of his top notch band that has torn the house down everywhere they have played. From Osaka Japan to Frankfurt Germany. He truly puts on one of the best live shows around.

For Chilton its the mix of styles that music creation so interesting to him. "I just love listening to everything and I think that shows up in how I write." Says Chilton. "When I take my cd to a live audience its just great to see the react to the music I have written. I really feel like I am giving people a vibe they have been missing for a long time!"

Chilton's band is equally as diverse in their musical history. "Hey these guys are louder than some of the heavy metal bands I have played for!" Says Kurt Mc the bands bass player. " I never thought I would play in an r&b band because there is so much stigma to modern r&b, but Chilton changed all that for me!!"

And that seems to be the point for Chilton and the rest of the band mates. Says Gclef "I think we really want to change the world with our music or at least the way the world listens to music."

The smart money seems to be just that.
