Dandy Brown
Steve “Dandy” Brown is a producer, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known for his work with the bands “Hermano”, “Orquesta del Desierto”, "John Garcia", and his solo releases. Born in Hamilton, Ohio, and currently residing in Joshua Tree, California, Brown first cut his teeth writing and performing with Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs) in their seminal 1980’s midwestern rock band, “The Black Republicans”. From there, Brown continued to write, perform and session in the greater Cincinnati area with a variety of musicians focusing upon a wide spectrum of musical genres. Using that experience, Brown opened Suretone Recording Studio in Clifton, Ohio, where he produced and engineered the albums of dozens upon dozens of regional artists throughout the 1990’s. By the end of the decade, Brown produced and wrote the majority of music for the first “Hermano” album, (Only a Suggestion). With critical acclaim gathered from the release of the first “Hermano” album, he pulled up his midwestern roots and moved to the desert of southeastern California, where he formed and produced “Orquesta del Desierto”.

Continuing dual duties in both “Hermano” and “Orquesta del Desierto”, Brown spent the first decade of the 21st century touring and producing albums with both groups. Currently, Dandy Brown is releasing his latest collection of solo material which could easily be labeled as a bridge between both “Hermano” and “Orquesta del Deseirto”, featuring both heavier edged riffs and the nuance of the primal desert. Represented by Little Brother Publishing and Artist Services, Brown’s new collection of material is available now on his website, and 2 songs are featured in the upcoming sampler from Little Brother Music Publishing called, "The Genuine West Coast Desert Sound".
