GÜERO BROWN – GÜERO BROWN is at Top 200 Radio Now!!

Güero Brown is a classic-rock-leaning singer-songwriter (think Van Morrison or Jackson Browne for classic influences or Ty Segall for a contemporary) based in Seattle who I met through some mutual friends last fall. His name is in reference to the fact that he spent a lot of time (and wrote a lot of these songs) traveling/living in Latin America. A cool record which I was able to send a pretty good number of hard copies out to stations of – make sure to check it out! (A note: he spells his name with those umlauts, because that is how that word is spelled – GÜERO BROWN – and would appreciate you spelling it that way on playlists and public-facing stuff as often as possible, but NACC does not recognize special characters like that, so just use the regular non-accented letters for NACC charts: GUERO BROWN.)




A Michigan native now based in Seattle, Güero Brown is an independent musician and graduate of Western Michigan University, where he studied foreign languages and audio engineering. Travel and literature have played a significant role in Güero’s artistic development and musical taste, including a particularly enduring love for Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. After a period of years based in West Michigan, Güero took time away from music in 2014 to live in Latin America and find new inspirations. In early 2017, Güero returned to the studio to record new music that was later eventually released as this self-titled album. Many of the songs on Güero Brown were written in the Southern Hemisphere and feature contributions from various talented collaborators in different parts of the United States.

Anyone who’s ever had to deal with cancer, directly or indirectly, may find some solace in “Sunny Days.” That track was written after Güero dealt with cancer-releated deaths of two people in his life in quick succession. It also features contributions from Joe Ayoub (touring bassist for Shakira and Enrique Iglesias and current house bassist on American Idol) and Brett Farkas (who has toured and recorded with the likes of Aimee Mann, Lord Huron, Solomon Burke, Rihanna, and Princess with actress Maya Rudolph).
