"Local Musician Nominated for Grammy Award, The Sacramento Union, Dec. 21, 2007"

After submitting a pair of covers of the popular songs, "Reconsider Blues" and "Blueberry Hill" last August, Brown, a longtime vocalist and saxophonist, was recently informed that his rendition of "Blueberry Hill" had caught the eye of Grammy judges...
Brown was pleased to learn of his special recognition...
Brown, who has a strong following throughout the greater Sacramento area, ... will have (his) song evaluated for consideration as a potential Grammy winner in the category of "Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance." Within this category, Brown has been recognized along with such famous artist as B.B. King, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Gladys Knight, Thelma Houston, Chaka Khan and Jennifer Hudson...
"To be named among those existing artists like that is quite an accomplishment", Brown said. - Lance Armstrong

"In the Basement"

"When it comes to singing, he has a relaxed style which comes over well on the pair of George Jackson opener, 'Don't Make Me Late' and 'This is Your Night', where the sax breaks and orchestral accompaniment allow him to get a supper-club feel." - David Cole

"Elk Grove Citizen"

"Alternating between his voice and his saxophone, what Brown does is always called smooth and his choice of songs are romantic." - Nan Mahon

"News & Review"

"At a time when so many vocalists engage in what legendary record producer and Atlantic Records executive Jerry Wexler recently called 'oversouling', Brown imbues his sung melodies with a relaxed grace." - Jack Griffith

Gathering together elements of R&B, soul and pop, Grammy nominated artist Nat Brown takes his cue from the likes of Sam Cooke, Lou Rawls and Jackie Wilson, his idols. But chances are he doesn't do it their way.

"I never learned to read music; I just couldn't do it," he said. "I hear a particular melody in my head and just go with it."

With the ubiquitous sunglasses, Brown often has been mistaken for Ray Charles or Stevie Wonder, but his blindness isn't a gimmick - just a fact of life.

"I played in nightclubs in East St. Louis. I worked with Ike and Tina (Turner); that was where all the musicians played in the early days."

Throughout his musical career, Brown also has shared the stage with Little Richard, The Coasters, Lou Rawls, Etta James and Jackie Wilson.
