Detroit's most beloved bartender, cook, and ping-pong champion has gone solo. Well, solo in the sense that he’s put a firecracker musical act together and called it Craig Brown Band.
Craig Brown brings effortless musicianship and his damaged honky-tonk howl to the mix. This man has a deep love for rock n' roll. It's imbedded in his soul. It's in the way he moves, thinks, lives, and plays. Live, Craig Brown Band might look like they slept at the club, but deliver a surprisingly polished and tuneful sound. The good ol' boys in the band, Eric, Perry and Young Andrew hold down the bedraggled hillbilly-deluxe-meets-dive-bar-classic-rock, offset by the pitch-perfect honeyed harmonies of Drinkard sisters, Caitlin and Bonnie.
The debut full-length album, “The Lucky Ones Forget,” recorded by Warren Defever (Thurston Moore, Yoko Ono, Iggy and the Stooges) and is available tomorrow for pre-order here. The 7” single featuring tunes “Overthinking” and “Last All Night” is available tomorrow, online and in the Nashville and Detroit Third Man Records locations, and be sure to ask for it at your local record store.
Third Man Records is also excited to announce that Craig Brown will be hosting a Facebook Live Event at the Third Man Detroit Cass Corridor location from 12 pm to 1 pm tomorrow where he will take live song requests, play a little off his new album, and chat about the record. Follow @ThirdManRecords on Facebook to check out his performance!
On February 15, Craig Brown Band will have a single release show at UFO Factory in Detroit with special guest Birdcloud. For more information, visit the Facebook Event page here.
