About Our Music
Acoustic duo Kevin and Desley Brown play an unpretentious brand of modern folk,
with influences ranging from rock to Celtic to jazz, all hung together on a
unique combination of piano and acoustic guitar. Their intricate harmonies and
thoughtful lyrics complement song styles ranging from progressive to quaint.
This husband/wife team bring together a musical perspective that reaches from
America's heartland to the land Down Under, yet grows from common roots in classic hymns.
Their music has been described as refreshing, uplifting, and reflective, and
they try to share a little of each in the songs that they write and sing.
More About Us
Kevin grew up in a small town in northeastern Ohio, and today still doesn't
feel quite right if he can't see cornfields from his bedroom window. Desley was born in
Australia, but grew up mostly in various parts of New Zealand's North Island
(yes, she still has the accent). Kevin and Desley met in 1995 in Minneapolis
while they were training for tours with the volunteer music ministry organization
Youth Encounter. Desley toured the
U.S., Denmark, and Germany for 17 months while Kevin spent the time in Western
Australia and (strangely enough, as future events would have it) Desley's home
turf of New Zealand.
