September 8 - Guitarist - Dee Brown

A common thread among most successful Musical artists is that the inspiration to become great arrived at a young age, and the early history of rhythm and blues guitarist Demitris Edwards Brown was no different. Growing up in Detroit, MI, Brown, was exposed to the smooth sounds of jazz as he listened to the legendary recordings of his father’s favorite artists; Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, Charles Mingus, Les McCann, Cannonball Adderly, King Pleasure and Charles Christian.

Brown, fascinated and inspired, would eventually receive his first guitar as a Christmas present from his grandmother, and immediately took lessons, hoping to become the next B.B. King. By the time Brown was in high school, he was a polished artist, and formed the group Foreplay. After earning a solid reputation while playing at venues in Detroit, Foreplay drew the attention of producer Quincy Jones, and the rest is history.
