Jeff Brown 14


Chicago USA   Feb 2011  

Artist Bio

Influences:   Alcohol and girls, mostly. But also Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, Ryan Adams, The Civil Wars, Maynard J. Keenan, Tom Waits, Thrice, Jeff Buckley, Martin Sexton, Iron Maiden, Iron & Wine, Heather Styka, Willy Porter, Alice in Chains, Mumford & Sons, Jimmy Eat World, Margot & the Nuclear So-and-So's, Rachael Yamagata, Matt Nathanson, all of my ridiculously talented musical friends who you've never heard of...

This is my seventh year participating in FAWM, and I know that I shouldn't psyche myself out just yet, but owing to being on the road for 11 of the 28 days this month, this is the first year that I genuinely won't be surprised or disappointed if I don't complete 14...


"I don't know where the music comes from, but I know I'm not supposed to keep it..." -mark brink


Someone asked me once what I would be if I weren't a musician.

I smiled and told them, "Less happy."

    thanks for your comment re: my lower register. i'm really struggling right now because i think my voice is shifting a little--maybe too much soprano singing with the ol' church choir? anyway, i had a lot of trouble writing for my voice this year...i think i need to take some vocal production lessons to learn how to sing my own damned songs!! 😁

    YAY! SIX! You've made it to EP territory--I have a crap-ton of recording to do! ALSO, you missed an UNBELIEVABLE show from Harumph tonight. I'm SO glad I went--they were incredible!

    I would like to thank you sooooo much for the wonderful music you put to "Friends of mine" as well as for your kind words... Great music here with such a lovely melody and awesome guitar work! I also enjoy your performance, impressively presented! I would love to keep the song... May I ask you for the favor or to make it downloadable or to send me the mp3 on my email address, which is
    ? Thanks so much again!

    Meeting a woman has inspired more than one song title. Works for me 😉

    Aha! I wondered what the odd footsteppy noises were... 😉
