In middle Tennessee there lies a collaborative retreat for musicians and audio engineers driven by the primary instrumentation, structure, and lyrics of singer/songwriter/producer Ethan Samuel Brown. Ethan is a neofolk lyricist combining elements of traditionalist european folk and appalacian newgrass to contrive a melodic concoction of modern, unique folk music.
Ethan's impressionable years were spent in his birth place of the Appalachian slag heaps in Eastern Kentucky. Ingesting nights of moonshine soaked bluegrass parties through the young eyes of sobriety, he became obsessed with studying the poems and lyrics of folk musicians and authors who experienced a similar, timeless upbringing.
After jumping across the commonwealth and eventually landing on the other side of the Ohio river in Cincinnati, he embarked on a rigorous study of stringed instruments. At 18, he made the move to Nashville. Here, He studied music production under many successful industry professionals on historic Music Row. After spending a couple of years mingling through the east side of music city as an audio engineer and a concert promoter, he began pursuing a career as a solo artist, performing consistently at venues across the country.
He later returned to Nashville and hand selected a core of music city professionals to back his centralized vision. Ethan is currently writing and recording his debut album in Nashville, TN at Yellow Box Sound Studios and APTKB.
