Old Man Brown Releases New CD Return On Indie Label Boat Shop Record
Posted by: Wed Nov 14, 2007 5:58 pm (PST)
Nashville, Tennessee-November 13, 2007-Old Man Brown is based in the
Baltimore area, playing their own brand of original rock, blues, soul
and funk that honors earlier traditions that have been forgotten with
much of the new music coming out today.
You can learn more about Old Man Brown and their tour dates on their
Keyboardist and singer Adam Scott-Wakefield and his late brother,
drummer John Scott-Wakefield have provided the original music and
lyrics for the band over the years.
The latest release Return is the culmination of paying their dues
playing out and writing songs from the heart that rings true with
audiences eager to embrace their eclectic musicianship and unique
style. Finding inspiration through blues and rock legends such as
Freddie King, The Meters, Bobby Bland, The Allman Brothers and Little
Feat was a natural thing for OMB and it is fully realized on Return.
Even though they sound like they are from the Deep South, the band
all grew up in rural New Hampshire, far removed from the roots of the
Long-time friends of the Wakefield brothers and fellow musicians
Marshall Chapman (guitar), Paul Lewis (bass) and Alex Rankin (guitar)
gathered on a farm in central NH, hosted by Chapman's stepfather,
Peter Brown, aka "Old Man Brown," who opened his house to the band
and cleaned out a place in his barn and made a studio for jamming.
This is how Old Man Brown came to be. The sudden death of drummer
John Scott-Wakefield happened just as the band was completing studio
work on their first OMB demo. The band then recruited one of John's
best friends, Benjamin Woodbury to fill his place.
In 2006, Johnny Neel (The Allman Brothers, Dickey Betts Band) heard
about the band from a local friend in Baltimore and after listening
to their demo decided that he wanted to work with the band. In July,
Old Man Brown went to Johnny's Straight-Up Sound Studios in Nashville
and collaborated on their first full length CD Return. Old Man Brown
has appeared on stages with The Derek Trucks Band, Levon Helm, Canned
Heat, and many others and since then have been playing out live and
gaining a stronger following with each gig.
Old Man Brown is a throwback to bands like the Allman Brothers and
The Spencer Davis Group. The lead singer, Adam-Scott Wakefield, who's
voice has a remarkable resemblance to the legendary Steve Winwood,
will have you mesmerized in a matter of seconds once you hear him
meld his strong vocals into the soulful music the band pumps out.
