Biography by John Bush
Growing up in Preston, England, Kevin Brown was influenced by American R&B and British blues guitarists. He was working as a teacher in 1979 when he decided to pursue a career playing slide and blues guitar. It was five years before he caught a break through Hannibal Records. The label issued his demos as Road Dreams; that album and the follow-up, Rust, were also released on Rykodisc.
Obscure and Excellent

""Rust" is one of those obscure, overlooked CDs that really is a true gem. It's more than a diamond in the rough because Kevin Brown takes his band of largely unknown sidemen through a great set of original tunes, kicking up the dust on some tracks and welling' up the tears on others. His excellent slide and blues guitar playing shine throughout, when he gets revved up on Write a Bible of Your Own, its hard to keep one's feet from tapping along. This solid set of blues-rock numbers may not break any new ground as far as subject matter or technique, but Mr. Brown infuses each song with emotion and graceful playing. His is a fine songwriter as well, and his wit shines on Don't Quit and Telephone tears. The one notable guest, Joe Louis Walker, trades vocals and licks with Mr. Brown on, what else, Hey Joe Louis.If for no other reason, you might want to track down a copy just for the short instrumental Sunny Side Up, which could turn your whole day around for the better."
