Biography

As one of the most promising up and coming artists from Chicago, Brent Brown pours everything into his music. It is his passion in life and a way for him to spread positivity into the world around him. Brent’s music is influenced by some of his favorite artists including the Beatles, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Jack Johnson and Otis Redding. He is a versatile musician who sings, plays guitar, bass, drums and dabbles on the keys. Originally from Naperville, he is an accomplished producer with seven self-produced albums to his name. 

With minimal gear and a couple years of experience playing and singing, Brent recorded several early releases including Mind Over Melody which became a sensation on YouTube as it also featured internet blogger and make-up guru Megan Parken. 

After taking up a six month cruise ship tour with Carnival, Brent's voice took a beating and left him virtually voiceless for a little over two months. During this reflective time, he wrote most of Silent Mind’s University. With his voice back to health, Brent sprung back with a vengeance on his fifth release, Soul Candy. This 18 track album offered a run of great songs like “Abbey”, “Ashes” and “Madness.”  “In My Head” quickly grew into a fan favorite and one of Brent's best live jams. 

“Good Morning” is featured as one of the singles on Brent’s sixth release Beyond. This would prove to be the last album produced by Brent that wasn't professionally mixed or mastered.  With the maturing of his songwriting skills with songs like "Young, Wild, Free, Fun", "Hard to Deliver" and "2 Days Ago Tomorrow", the time was right for Brent to begin to take things to the next level. 

Breaking free and feeling a new sense of liberation, Brent wrote “I Got Soul” while moving out of his parents’ house. With the support of his fans, friends and family, Brent also raised $2,000 on Kickstarter to fund the 2014 album release Vision featuring the critically acclaimed song “I Got Soul” 

With an additional album FOR PLAY in the works and a 2015 tour in development, Brent Brown’s energy, passion and commitment to his music remains limitless.  His presence on all major social media and strong connection with his fans is allowing him to enjoy growing support from fans around the world.

Lyrics

Sapphire Chimes In

Written By: Brent Brown

I see your face, with a smile like gold and the world tucked under,
This place, illuminates your eyes with wonder.

When I cannot find my home.
Sapphire chimes in.

Stabs for truth is a shot in the dark thats going nowhere,
It is up to you, believe in love, cause every time I fall...
Sapphire chimes in.

Everywhere I go I know that my life could fall down in an instance,
and everywhere you are is the necessary spark to ignite the resistance.
When and only when...
Sapphire chimes in.

I see your face, with a smile like gold and the world tucked under,
This place, illuminates your eyes with wonder.

When i cannot find my home.
Sapphire chimes in.

Jubilee

Written By: Brent Brown

I Am Kindness

Written By: Brent Brown

it happened again, it’s 2am, and it’s rainin,
i need to hear your voice, whispers so sweetly,
sooth my troubled mind,
please repeat my favorite line.

baby there’s not much that i could say to you right now.
you know i love you and you’ll make it through some how.
though it seems farrr, away.
I am kindness, and im here to stay.

I’de like you to know before it gets too cold,
that soon it will be better,
if we make it through the night,
and start this thing off right,
we could last forever.

Belladonna Lily

Written By: Brent Brown

I took a trip down to the garden of light and I picked this flower for you,
it ain’t the best one I could find but it’s perfectly imperfect so I thought of you.
please dont take it wrong, your the reason that I'm writtin every single song.

she is my belladonna lily bloom next to me,
extend your pedals to create your wings,
and when you fly away, its safe to follow cause you pollinate the way,
thats leads me home.
today,
tomorrow
to stay
til next month,
and pray,
that next year is the same,
if it’s not forever,
it be a shame,
you are the remedy to all my pain,
if you want my name,
then we could play a game,
it’s called love,
and I received it from above,

oooo oooo lovee
ooo oooo loveee

And when I got back, she was outta sight,
no im not sayin like she’s gone, shes standin to my right,
I mean she lookin tight, foot fubblin freaky good,
I mumble but understood, I found the girl I knew I could.
I know I should slow down, the reasons are all around.
I blinded by what I found, but knowin is nothin she comes around.
no I can’t step back, so immuna step on the gas,
im prepin a medical cast, in case if this something we have doesn’t last.

(Chorus)

Queen Appalachia

Written By: Brent Brown

Lye down in this river bed.
Let the water fill your head,
is it really what’s been said when a metaphor rings instead.
Can I cut the roots that rut the truth?
May I take your stress away?
All is irrelevant, all ideas are prevalent.
Waiting to be thoughts, visions to be taught.

Queen Appalachia I need to Navigate ya’.
Bust out of your glacier and the journey is yours.
In time our love will shine through the facets of who we are.

blueberry bloodline,
lavender water.
strawberry sunshine,
Venus’s daughter.
i dreamt away the day,
with plans to wake up yesterday.

Brain stop staring away,
truth stop daring I stay,
rain stop falling today,
veins over flowing with the afternoon.
mouth over loaded with the words I can’t say.
sheets all swollen with the thoughts I cannot stop.
every single thing that I said to you.
replace the empty space with I love you alot.

Queen Appalachia I need to Navigate ya’.
Bust out of your glacier and the journey is yours.
In time our love will shine through the facets of who we are.

blueberry bloodline,
lavender water.
strawberry sunshine,
Venus’s daughter.
i dreamt away the day,
with plans to wake up yesterday.

Four Miles Below the Sun

Written By: Brent Brown

Well my babe just left today,
took a rocketship skyward in the month of may,
everything will be okay,
I'll be back tomorrow in galactical time.
Sorrow just exists in your perceptual mind.
dont worry bout me, cause I'll be fine,
I'm going to find out why the sun won't shine.
And when I come back you can be all mine.

Chorus-
You know, who knows your not the only one,
to roam from home 4 miles below the sun.

cafe brulee' just opened today,
a poet set the stage cause he had something to say.
many mighty men come to lead you astray,
It seems Sgt. Peppers got carried away.
reckless abandon if you come out to play,
God grant glory in mysterious ways.
You think your on top of this elliptical phase,
when you do the opposite of those who pray.

Chorus-
You know, who knows your not the only one,
to roam from home 4 miles below the sun.
(x2)
