Album Notes
Explorer of Life features Progressive, Hard Rock Riffs with soaring Guitar Synth melodies & textures, along with acoustic and classical elements influenced by such artists as: Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple, Rainbow, Blackmore's Night), Pat Metheny, Alex Lifeson, Marillion, Pete Townshend, and even Blues and Jazz artists Kim Simmonds of Savoy Brown and George Benson.
One of the highlights of Explorer of Life is the Wind of Darkness suite that combines 2 pieces into a seven minute progressive piece in C tuning. Explorer of Life also features my acoustic playing through the tracks: Above the Mist, When the Sun Rises, and the Prelude from the first Cello suite by J.S. Bach.

Charles Brown shines on Explorer of Life
Progressive rock guitarist Charles Brown returns in 2017 with his all new instrumental CD - Explorer Of Life - released on CD and digital download. Explorer Of Life follows the 2015 Charles Brown album Wind Of The Eastern Sea and is his finest album to date. Best known to guitar fans as one of the finest independently produced, instrumental prog-rock fusion artists, Charles Brown has earned a stellar reputation for his many fine albums that offers a mix of guitar-based Progressive, Jazz-Rock Fusion and Hard Rock instrumental songs and arrangements. Fans of guitar heroes such as Pete Townshend, Richie Blackmore, Pat Metheny, Alex Lifeson, Kim Simmonds and George Benson will want to listen as Charles Brown explores the realms of the electric guitar with his 2017 CD, Explorer Of Life. Featuring ten tracks, Explorer Of Life leads off with the title track “Explorer Of Life” and the entire album burns its way through a wide range of electrifying, rock-based instrumental guitar tracks, all spotlighting Charles playing a number of guitars, synths and percussion. Combining all types of guitar performance—from hard rock and jazz-rock fusion to classical guitar, guitarist / composer Charles Brown has remained a popular exponent of progressive instrumental rock guitar music for the past fifteen years. Bursting on the scene with his 2000 album Mystics, Charles has released a number of extraordinary instrumental albums over the years and his 2017 album Explorer Of Life is his finest CD yet.
