Matt Brown


I have many influences, but I am a big fan of Chris Robinson, Ray Lamontagne, James Taylor, Matthew Sweet and an obscure group called The Beatles. I enjoy reggae, some country, some jazz and blues, but mostly rock. I don’t worry too much about genres as I find the song comes out as it should in whatever form. However, I have yet to write a polka song.

Band Bio
I played my first paying gig in Bangor, Maine where I was born and raised. I played a Dm chord for what seemed like hours until someone I am forever grateful for shouted the first line…”It’s 3:30 in the morning!” From there I was hooked. I moved to Florida this go around in 1993 and played lead guitar in Skyway Jumpers for many years, and I had a great time. We had one original song I named “3 Birds” so whenever someone inevitably shouted “Free Bird!” we could play our song… it had nothing to do with birds.

In addition to still playing solo and duo (Brown Katz) gigs, I am also currently the lead singer/guitarist for Whiskey Blind, a high energy rock/dance band. I am proud to be a part of this particular local music scene. You will not find a better group of people. The songs I am submitting are my own songs and all instruments are played by me except the drums, which are programmed on Nothing Better, and played electronically by Rodney Johnson on Take A Ride.
