My name is Jimmy Brown, I'm originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland though have been living in North Carolina for the last few years. I've been touring the states and europe on the back of my first solo release 'Muzzle The Muse' which I co-wrote with renowned Irish poet, 'Adrian Rice'. I'm in the process of recording another EP which shall be released on all digital stores when I finish it. If you'd like to stay updated with what I'm doing please sign up for my email list via the reverb nation link.
Independent Weekly -
With a vibe that mingles Irish and folk and soul, placing Jimmy Brown near Van Morrison is easy. Brown's songs, though, tend to be more cohesive, and his vocals are more gentle—delicate at times.
Creative Loafing (live review @ The Visulite Theater) -
Belfast-native, who now resides in Hickory, N.C. Jimmy Brown kicked off the show by playing a number of indie/acoustic songs. This included Day By Day, Butter Wont Melt, Yo Yo Heart, and others. During one of his newbie songs, called Rilke Says, Brown used a loop pedal to add extra elements and cool sounds to the soundscrapes already deep and moving lyrics. Brown wrapped up his set with a cover of Waterboys Fishermans Blues. Most recently, Brown has been busy recording, traveling and performing shows in Ireland and other parts of Europe.
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
