Kris Brown's music is a special treasure; it's as though Bob Marley, Merle Haggard, Son House, and Beck joined Earth, Wind, and Fire. He got his start playing blues, punk rock, singing barbershop, and studying classical as a child. At eighteen, he moved to Cincinnati, where he received a jazz degree while regularly worked with expatriots of the classic soul bands: James Brown, Kool & the Gang, the Ohio Players, Midnight Star, and Gladys Knight. Kris currently resides in Austin and plays dobro and pedal steel with country bands on the side. You really ought to sample this music.
