    062 - Brother Paul Brown :: Attitude helps you win despite your circumstances

    When virtuosity, intuition and pure soul meet, the results are magical. And that kind of magic — steeped in the sounds, tradition and spirit of Memphis — is (Brother) Paul Brown’s specialty. The GRAMMY® Winning Nashville, Tennessee-based musician, songwriter and producer is a roots world MVP, but his abilities truly extend beyond any genre to encompass his vision.

    That’s abundantly clear when Brown’s behind the keyboard. Whether on stage or in the studio, his signature approach and passionate energy are both unmistakable. In addition to the gliding melodies, elongated textures and churning chords, Brown displays a stunning, highly original vocabulary on the instrument — enhancing and reflecting the vocal performances of compelling singers like Rush, Peebles, Deborah Bonham and Mighty Sam McClean with voice-like effects — hums, stutters, exclamations, lines that trail off like sentences. It’s that musical conversation he alludes to, in a very literal sense.

    Coming from a musical family where everyone played an instrument, it was noticed as soon as pots, pans, Tupperware and wooden stir spoons were missing and tore up at the l age of 6. Soon taking lessons from a local drum instructor Greg Tooley, Sean learned all the basics. Reading basic notation and rudiments to simple rock grooves and focus on timekeeping was the agenda. After working the local circuit in various rock and pop cover bands, Sean made the leap to Nashville where he would be the small fish in a big pond of great musicians and drummers. 
     
    Sean honed in on his craft in downtown Nashville bars and made a name for himself over the course of three years during which he had worked his way into doing many demo recordings for various hit songwriters such as Hilary Lindsey, Dallas Davidson and many more.

    Marty Ray was born in Memphis, TN but grew up in a small town in Arkansas by the name of Blytheville. He was always the funniest, and scariest, guy in any room growing up, and still is.

    He has been singing and writing songs since he was a young boy and about acting he says, "I guess I've always been an actor, you gotta be able to act to get outta some of the stuff I got into". Marty has been involved in multiple Independent Films all across the south and has rubbed shoulders with some pretty respectable people in the entertainment industry. As a Singer/Songwriter Marty has won several competitions and had several songs placed, along with radio airplay. As an actor he stands out with his versatility in styles from Comedy to Romance, even with that majestic beard. He has been successful in radio as well. Creating and producing his own radio show strictly about Indie Film and Music called MemNash Radio he gained access to the inside, or back door, of the movie business. MemNash Radio reached many fans with Hawk and The Beard at the helm, I think you know who "The Beard" was.
