Blake Brown is an American singer-songwriter from Denver, Colorado.
After participating in many collaborative projects, Blake Brown formed The American Dust Choir. His idea was to have the flexibility of playing solo, as a duo (with his wife Tiffany), and in various incarnations including a revolving cast of musicians. The American Dust Choir includes friends and musicians of some well-known groups such as The Fray, The Films, and Tennis. The line-up has since galvanized and includes mainstays Tiffany Brown (keyboard/vocals), Adam Blake (drums), Jason Legler (bass), and Trent Nelson (guitar). The band released its debut full length LONG WAY HOME in March 2018. Brown’s music is rooted in acoustic sounds, and characterized by his seemingly simple, but nuanced, melodies and heartfelt lyrics. Marked by a surprisingly captivating subtleness, Brown’s music and stage presence leaves audiences with something to think about and always wanting more.
Following the release of LONG HOME WAY, the band performed multiple official showcases at SXSW in Austin, Texas, including an official showcase at the legendary Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater supporting Keith Urban. Following SXSW, Brown went on the road supporting Justin Townes Earle as an acoustic duo.
