Music for a Shrinking World

My friend Tony Brown is having his CD release party this Friday (leap-day!) which I plan on checking out. There’s a reception at 7:30, which will include champagne and cheese and there should be a couple bands opening for him. I think Tony will start about 11 o’clock.

I’m having dinner, but if anyone’s interested in meeting up at the club around 9 o’clock, let me know. There’s a $5 cover charge or $10 for a cover charge plus “free” CD. Yeah, that’s weird.

Tony Brown is an alternative soul singer-songwriter from Rochester, NY, living in Boston, celebrating his first solo recording, “Music for a Shrinking World”.

More detailed bio:

Tony Brown delivers his blues-peppered, funk-injected, alterna-soul pop/rock acoustically to fully-plugged. A Tony Brown show flows between a moody, reflective session to an upbeat hip-swinging party. His soul-stirring and versatile lyrical tones take the audience on a visceral journey. The integrity of his poignant compositions is grounded in searching, and in a love for music having been exposed to everything from Beethoven to Johnny Guitar Watson as a kid. Tony Brown combines elements of rock and soul to create a completely original sound – the emotion of Jeff Buckley with the power of vocals that fall somewhere between Seal and Van Morrison. Tony was lead singer of the band Ozone in the 1990s, which acclaimed by music critics for its “soaring U2 Bono-bluster vocals” (Gannett’s Democrat & Chronicle) and “pure vocal soul” (Freetime Magazine).
