This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



It's a family thang and most importantly it's a state of mind. Babybrutha was formed by founding member T.LEE (bass, keys and vocals) . The current line up includes Savino Izzi on guitar, Keith King on drums and Mecca Modai on vocals and percussion . The sound is definitely soulful with a rock approach. Babybrutha's live performances have been described as HIGH ENERGY FUNK! Some have said that their sound is a combination of Jimi Hendrix, Curtis Mayfield and Sly and the Family Stone. Babybrutha has performed behind many local Chicago artists, as well as writing and producing. The Wild Hare, Morseland, Darkroom, The Hothouse, Red Line Tap, The Congress Theater are just a few of the Chicago area venues that have featured these musicians. They have performed for festivals and private events as well. TLEE says the name Babybrutha comes from a Richard Pryor routine where Pryor is speaking to Jim Brown. Jim Brown says to Pryor "What's happening Babybrutha?" Pryor responds with "Ain't nuthin to it." These guys have a fierce approach to music. They list Outkast, Raphael Saadiq, P-Funk, The Beatles, Lenny Kravitz and Prince as major influences. The sound is fresh and very melodic. Now Go Wiggle!
