Combining the soul of country and the spirit of Rock-n-Roll, Junior Brown’s music appeals to country purists, alternative country rebels, rock-n-roll lovers, and to mainstream music lovers. Junior expresses his virtuosity on his distinctly unique instrument, the twin-necked “guit-steel,” which is an efficient combination of a steel guitar and an electric guitar, one which he affectionately calls “Big Red”. In Junior’s hands, the guit-steel is an amazing tool, a means to creating some of the hottest, most heartfelt playing heard in years. Playing everywhere from the Grand Ole Opry to rock showcases on the West Coast, to Gruene Hall, Junior has been heralded by major publications such as Musician, Life, and Guitar Player magazines, to name a few, as a musical genius. “He may very well be one of the few true musical artists we have left – a player firmly rooted in the past but whose forceful personality and sheer talent make his work stand out as a unique and unmistakable form of self-expression.” Cover at the door.
