"Severin Browne"

“Browne’s style fits in the same category as folksingers like James Taylor and the late Jim Croce, although... as one of the guardians of the California folk music heritage.”
--Carool Kersten,

"Severin Browne"

“(Severin’s) melodies are catchy and yet often take unexpected turns that keep them interesting after repeated listenings, in fact I enjoy them more each time around.”

"Severin Browne"

"Severin's songs and melodies are so memorable that I can recall the first time I heard each song: where I was, who I was with..."

""This Twisted Road""

This CD is brilliant! It is a mix of folk, pop, country, jazz, blues and a little rock-n-roll. Severin Browne has compiled a collection of pure Americana with songs that are honest and beautiful, touching the heart while providing poignant observations on life, love and heartache. There is also an element of fun and a down to earth philosophy for life. The songs are catchy and beautiful, ranging from stripped down acoustic purity to finely orchestrated pieces of musical gold. I highly recommend this album to anyone who loves music. It is a must have for any music library. I give "This Twisted Road" By Severin Browne five stars!

Severin Browne continues to enchant audiences with his clear voice, masterful guitar playing and finely crafted songs. He's a romantic, a philosopher and a nonpareil hook-meister able to keep hearts throbbing and heads bobbing.
After leaving Motown Records in the mid-seventies, Severin spent his time writing and performing in the Los Angeles area. During this period, Severin’s songs were recorded by artists such as Thelma Houston, Patti Dahlstrom, Colin Blunstone, Twiggy, The Dillards, and Pamela Stanley, who had a Billboard #15 hit with Severin’s “I Don’t Want To Talk About It.”
His two post-Motown CDs, “From the Edge of The World” released on Moo Records in 1996, and “This Twisted Road” self-released in 2001, have both gotten great reviews. Although “From The Edge of the World” is now out of print, “This Twisted Road” is currently available at
With roots in pop, jazz, country, rock and R&B, Severin surprises his folk audiences with melodies and grooves that are not usually heard in those circles. And his insistence in writing in those genres have kept him happy, but at a distance from the single-genre format of today’s radio stations.

Although Severin’s writing and performing style has been compared to some of the greats, he has contented himself with performing and teaching guitar and songwriting in Los Angeles. Though lately he has been entertaining the notion of getting back out on the road again. He also teaches at the annual SummerSongs West songwriting camps in Central California. He lives happily in an old part of Los Angeles with his wife Melinda and an assortment of dogs and cats. Information on all his activities, including performances and teaching, can be found at
