Paul Brown started as a drummer, he then became an engineer for R&B legends such as Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin before evolving into a two-time Grammy winning urban jazz producer and finally a popular guitarist, artist and performer in his own right. Over the past 12 years, after he had released his debut album, the Los Angeles born and raised guitarist produced/composed over 60 #1 radio airplay hits for himself and other artists as well as seven previous hit solo albums. He also did thousands of performances worldwide, including gigs with fellow guitarists Larry Carlton, Chris Standring and Marc Antoine, but also others of the genre’s most influential artists, e.g. Euge Groove, Rick Braun, Kirk Whalum, Boney James, Jeff Golub and Al Jarreau. And yet Paul admits he’s still trying to find himself as an artist. After all those accolades and live performances, he remains joyously restless – and the only place for him to go is deeper into the music that’s driven his life from the start, the blues. That is exactly what he does in “One way back”. While keeping his trademark deep funk and cool urban vibes flowing, on that CD Paul celebrates his lifelong blues influences.
