Tony Brown

Tony Brown is a singer/songwriter of a different ilk. With influences ranging from classic soul to the Pixies, Brown references all those disparate styles and moods at one time or another to create something completely original. The Black Art is the second independent release from Brown, who enlisted the help of Grammy winner Malcolm Burn as the record’s producer.

Also performing is Swati, a singer/songwriter with Indian roots from New York City who plays a guitar configured with 8 strings. She was part of the last year of Lilith Fair and has worked with the likes of Steve Lillywhite (producer for U2, Dave Mathews, Rolling Stones, etc.) and outstanding musicians such as Matt Chamberlain and Tony Levin, to name just a few.  She has been featured in Guitar Magazine twice as well as many other publications as her guitar playing is very unique. She mixes an acoustic sound with electric effects, with lyrics that are nothing short of direct, vulnerable, and sincere.
