AboutDRBDavid Rhodes Brown started singing with bands in 1964, bought his first guitar in the Navy in the early 70's and has been writing, playing and singing ever since. Early endeavors include the bands Woebegone, Forty Fingers, The Attitude and the Wet Spots, with styles ranging from bohemian rock to punk and alternative.

David formed the Warsaw Falcons in 1982, playing rockabilly and alt country. This band spanned 20 years both locally and regionally, utilizing over 40 of the area’s finest musicians, playing with Bo Diddly, The Drifters, Big Joe Duskin and Bobby Keys and opening for acts like Joan Jett and Marshall Crenshaw. Many fans will remember the “Big Bill Pickle” version of the band, formed to play jump blues rock and swing and won the 2000 Cincinnati Cammy Award in that category.

David has lent his legendary guitar licks to a lot of other acts, including Michael “Supe” Granda (of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils), regionally known rockabilly kats The StarDevils, and most recently the award winning groups 500 Miles to Memphis and Magnolia Mountain, Greg "Tex" Schramm and the Radio King Cowboys and The Tammy WhyNots. He has recorded with countless artists and added lap steel, banjo and dobro to his arsenal of talents.

His most recent endeavor isBrowngrass and Wildflowers”. The 15 song CD was recorded at Studio The Bamboo Room and mixed and mastered by world renowned Erwin Musper, who signed David to his label, YEAYEAYEAH RECORDS. All the songs are written and performed by David (with the exception of Hurt, written by Trent Reznor, and Wishing Well, co-written by Anna Scala and Gordon Caldwell), and features guest performances by 39 of Greater Cincinnati’s finest performers. The CD was released at David’s brainchild, the First Annual Browngrass Festival, a benefit for WNKU 89.7 fm (Northern KY University’s radio station).

Like a fine wine, David’s voice and style have mellowed with age… but like a good Kentucky bourbon, pack a huge punch.
