Randy Brown [2157] Artist Profile

Artist Bio

Randy Brown bought a $10 guitar on credit at the tender age of 12 and started writing songs at the age of 14. In high school and college he fell in with a band of godless heathen hippie musicians and the rest is history. After moving from the big city of Dallas to the sleepy town of Mineola,TX in 1974 he took whatever musical jobs he could get playing in various country bar bands for 15 years or so. Upon meeting finger style guitar wizard John DeFoore and cellist extraordinaire Dirje Childs in 1994 they formed a band called "Jealousy Motel" who during their 8 year career produced 2 CDs in their time. After that, BrownRandy decided that a solo career fit him better and spent 11 years as a solo singer/songwriter winning a number of songwriting awards as well as recordin 2 solo CDs (Dream Big in 2007 and "But Wait, There's More"... In 2013). Tiring of the solo world slightly, he began looking for like minded and talented musicians to shear up his cause, and the The Pine Curtain came to life, with Kurt Bittner (B-bender wizard) and multiethnic percussionist JB Smith.[6/16/17]
