Two for Tuesday: Paul Brown

Guitarist Paul Brown got his start as a recording engineer and producer, working with artists such as Al Jarreau, George Benson, Norman Brown (no relation) and others. He had played guitar since he was seven, and had played in several bands in high school and studied music and math at the University of Oregon, but it wasn’t until 2004 that he recorded his first album, Up Front.

From his second album, 2005’s The City, “Winelight.”

He recorded the album Foreign Xchange with Marc Antoine in 2009. Here’s the title track.

In all, Paul has recorded nine studio albums. His most recent was 2018’s Uptown Blues, with guest appearances by Jacqui Brown and Kenny Rankin. His website tells us his next show will be August 8 at Bogies bar and Lounge in Westlake Village, California with Jacqui Brown, after which he’ll be appearing in Monroe, Michigan on August 10 at St. Mary’s Park with Marc Antoine. Of course, you can follow him on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Spotify.
