Black Belt Eagle Scout Reveals New LP

'Black Belt Eagle Scout' Party With My Brown Friends

Black Belt Eagle Scout – the project led by multi-instrumentalist Katherine Paul, has announced her sophomore album, At the Party With My Brown Friends, out August 30th via Saddle Creek. At the Party With My Brown Friends is the follow up to Mother of My Children.

Lead single “At the Party” is a reflection on self-navigation and the comfort that comes from a close-knit group of friends. It starts off with quintessential Black Belt Eagle Scout guitar licks before heading into booming drums and vocals. The track was written while she was in her bedroom. “Within my conscious self, there is always a sense of questioning the legitimacy of the world when you grow up on an Indian reservation,” says Paul. “We are all at the party (the world), trying to navigate ourselves within a good or bad situation. I happen to be at the party with my brown friends- Indigenous, Black, POC who always have my back while we walk throughout this event called life.”
