Kevin Brown

Singer/Songwriter and Slide Guitar Player

Kevin Brown was born in Preston Lancashire, the son of a signwriter and schoolteacher, and has had a strong interest in music since early childhood. His ambitions have centered on guitar as well as writing and singing. From an early age his interests have been highly focused on the blues and its related genres. His devotion to music has been lifelong and his passion for slide guitar has resulted in many outstanding recordings and performances throughout the world. All of Kevin’s work is emotionally strong whether it be with a full rhythm section or as a solo artist. His work is admired by fans and artists alike, many of whom follow his career with great interest. His fresh approach to slide playing and willingness to examine new ideas has resulted in recordings which often seem to have a ‘timeless’ nature to them as well as perpetually generating interest.

His career began with the release of ‘Picking Good Tunes’ on his own ‘Do Dah’ label in 1984. This came to the attention of Joe Boyd at Hannibal records who released it in 1986 as ‘Road Dreams’. The follow up ‘Rust’ put Kevin firmly on the map and was nominated for Best Blues Album of the Year by the British Blues Foundation. On the strength of these two releases Kevin signed a major deal with Chrysalis Records in 1994 and his major label debut ‘Time Marches On’ has since been hailed as a classic, and has had both a UK and European release through Taxim records. ‘Sunny Side Up’ was Kevin's first instrumental album and released in 1999. In Sept 2001 Kevin is scheduled to release his first solo acoustic/electric slide/vocal album. ‘Mojave Dust’ was recorded live, straight to stereo, during the first half of 2001, pre-release feedback suggests that it is perhaps Kevin's finest piece of work. Kevin has furthered his collaboration with ‘Moussa Kouyate’ Master Senegalese Kora player to include UK dates in 2001. Recording has begun between them and the future looks very bright for this inspired combination of talent.
