Shawn Brown, master of the Hammond B3 and Most Soulful Vocalist this side of the Mississippi, learned music while playing Gospel with his family. His musical journey began at the age of 3 when he began playing the piano, and then became the organist, accompanying his mother for their church at 8 years old. Shawn’s latest album, Best Blues Money Can Buy, is a mix of Gospel, jazz, and blues. He has shared the stage with Al Green, Clarence Clemons, Christopher Cross, Earth Wind & Fire, Keith Sweat, Ronnie Earl, Lucky Peterson, and Percy Sledge.
As a cancer survivor, Shawn is constantly doing fundraisers through the Shawn Brown Foundation for families that are stricken financially, emotionally, mentally and spiritually from this horrific disease. Proceeds provide assistance in multiple ways to help the families combat the devastation that comes from not only fighting cancer, but for those left behind.
