Doug Brown is a multi-talented eclectic artist. His roots are in blues, R & B, jazz, rock and folk. Doug has played with acts local, national and international. He has played with artists as varied as Chuck Berry, North Star (a band consisting of members of Smokey Robinson’s backup band), The Four Tops, Tommy Bolin, Norma Bell, Spyder Turner, Free Jazz artist Faruk Z Bey and Detroit’s Sun Messengers. Doug even works with local Ann Arbor talent. He is a member of The Sari Brown Band and performs both music and spoken word shows with Andrew Brown.
Brown had a hit single on the local charts in 1980 that crossed over from pop to R & B. He even reached the top ten on Detroit’s black music stations; not an easy feat for a white boy. This single even earned him Billboard magazine’s “hit pick of the week” status.
Doug has finished recording a new seminal work entitled “Man of Clay”. It was released on February 20 2009. The entire album was recorded live at his home studio and mixed by his son Eli at Detroit’s Sick Boy Productions. The disc was recorded with no band, just Brown, his songs, piano and voice. The material is straight from the soul of this seasoned songwriter. The songs are about love, life, vulnerability and the struggle to create a better world for all people.
