"How cool, my friend. I didn't know you were such a pure singer and the songs are so well written, hypnotic and real. I've downloaded them to my iPhone and when they come up I just have to turn it up. Top rate production too. Best of luck on this project."
- Buddy Alan Owens
The long awaited debut EP from Tony Brown is now available. The project titled "The First Four", is Brown's inagural offering, as he expands beyond his previous involvement in music as a concert Promoter/Producer, into the realm of Singer/Songwriter/Performer. Brown enlisted the help of some heavy hitters in the Country music genre, to ensure the sound, and feel of "The First Four", would accurately reflect the traditional Country music personality that is embedded deep within his soul. Rudy Gatlin (Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers) added his voice to the mix on background vocals for "Waiting on the Stones". WS "Fluke" Holland (Legendary drummer for Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash's only drummer for almost forty years) sat in on drums for the initial session. Milo Deering (multi-instrumentalist for LeAnn Rimes Don Henely, and many others) shared his expansive talents with pedal steel, dobro, mandolin, and even a little electric bass. Theresa Spanke (Bakersfield multi-genre singer) added a splash of flavor with her sultry background vocals, as well as insightful creative input into the entire project. The project also features Pete Miller on upright bass, Dave Walser (Beetlegrass, Sgt Peppers Lonely Bluegrass Band) on acoustic guitar, Jerry Matheny (LeAnn Rimes) on electric guitar, Tommy Young on Hammond B3 organ, Randy Wills (The Singing Wills Family) on Grand piano, and Danny Cochran (Band of Brothers) on drums.
