Andrew Duncan Brown Archive

  • There are few nights that I go out on the town that I can say that the evening was touching, moving and heartwrenchingly emotional. However, this was indeed the case at Last Exit Live last Thursday, February 27th when The Dirty Rascals Presented the Music of Andrew Duncan Brown. Last October 13th, Brown passed away mysteriously while on vacation in France and those who had known him or who had been a fan of his music were devastated. Andrew was a prolific artist with a songwriting talent like few others, I saw him before he left and he was excited...

  • Well, hell it’s been a damned rocky road to get to 2014. I feel like last year I was trucking along full speed and killing it with unbreakable momentum. The fact that I haven’t posted in over a month proves that I hit a roadblock. I apologize for ducking out for an unplanned hiatus. Hey, I’m only one guy–I don’t have a staff and only occasionally do I have other contributors, mostly this is a one man show. A show I intend to get back on the road. The main problem for me began in October when there was a...

    Out with 2013, In with 2014!!!

  • (Author’s Note: I originally wrote the article below on January 8, 2013 for echocloud.tv, but the link there no longer works. In light of yesterday’s news concerning Andrew’s death in France, I thought the best way to pay tribute to his life would be to share a celebration of his music. After I wrote this article, Andrew introduced me to his father who gave me some of the greatest compliments I’ve ever received on anything I’ve ever written, it was a truly touching moment. I was also touched when on his Facebook music page, under “Description” for his music, he...

  • I’ve written about this cause before in the pages in this blog and I really do think it’s a very cool cause. This time it is a little different from the spaghetti dinner at the school with an amazing lineup. The  8th grade band from Pueblo Del Sol Middle School is going on a field trip to perform at a concert festival in Anaheim and go to Disneyland. The trip will cost $11,000 for the whole band to go and $300 per student. They are trying hard to raise money, so their students can go. This is a huge honor...

  • There is something intrinsically unique about the sound of Andrew Duncan Brown.  His self title debut album is a haunting set of songs that will settle deep down in your soul and reside there, gnawing at you from the inside. With a voice that is harrowing, warm and frail all at once, this is a sound that seeps all around you, crawls from within your ears to your mind and invades the recesses of your consciousness. The opener of “Auto Pilot” is practically devastating in its delivery, yet it sets the stage for the rest of the album in a...

  • I can’t be everywhere at once and chances are with the number of albums I receive weekly, I can’t catch all the ones I should. One of the bands that I have definitely shown up late for the show is Bad Lucy.  I had started seeing their name on bills last Spring and I after I see a band featured enough with other bands enough, I know there’s got to be something to it. This is the  case with Bad Lucy and since catching them the first time, I’ve seen them every chance I can get. Their debut self-titled studio...
