"Brown is to this country what Richard Thompson is to Britain: its most essential modern troubadour." — Boston Globe
Greg Brown was born in the Hacklebarney section of southeastern Iowa and raised by a family that made words and music a way of life. His seasoned songwriting, storytelling, and music reflect the profound influence Gospel and hymns, classical, early rock and roll, country, and blues had on his music. He moves audiences with warmth, humor, a thundering voice and his unpretentious musical vision.
