Album Notes
Kevin Brown is one of Europe's premier slide players. He is also a fine singer songwriter who draws much of his inspiration from blues and country roots.
He is the most respected slide guitar player in the UK and was chosen by Mark Knoplfer to play guitar during recent recording sessions. He has made 3 albums for Rykodisc/Hannibal and is now promoting his new album recorded straight to stereo 'Mojave Dust'

This record has confirmed Kevins supremacy at the top of the tree in the field of acoustic slide guitar blues.

It is raw, spine chilling and trully organic, you are right there in the room with him.

Kirk L'orange webmaster of the net based slide guitar web ring, claims Kevin is right up there with the best.

Planet Dobro the leading slide based web site not only hails Kevins slide playing but claims he writes 'killer songs'.

His recent collaboration with master kora player 'Moussa Kouyate' has resulted in an outstanding series of recordings to be released in the spring 2002.
Within moments of hearing this artist you know that you are in for a very joyous 40 minutes.

The UK based 'The Guitar Magazine' states quite simply that Kevin leaves other slide players 'Standing in his Dust'.

Mark Knopfler has said 'he offers far more than your average slide player'
Kevin is set to become the talk of the slide fraternity, hear for yourself, buy this CD

Dave Howard

fresh and refreshing look at living, lyrics and melody
I saw Kevin play at the Bottleneck blues club in Rochester and was totally drawn in to not only his slide playing, but the way he sang his songs. Like many others I came away with a copy of Mojave Dust and have been singing his praises since.
In a Willie Nelson kind of way his songs remark upon the obvious in a totally fresh manner, ?No one but myself to blame? is within us all, When you hear the reasoning behind ?When Your gone? it just makes total sense. Similarly ?Alcohol? holds a message all too often ignored. These songs are delivered with unassuming charm that often belies the fiery restraint of his playing, I should imagine once the word of mouth starts, the name Kevin Brown will have his day within the slide playing/singer fraternity. This record is a gem and my days are all the better for it.

Great slide work. Loved the CD.
I first heard about Kevin Brown in Guitarist Magazine. He is not well known where I am from in the middle of the USA. Had a hard time finding a copy of this CD, but once I did, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am hoping he will eventually tour the states and I can have an opportunity to see Kevin in person. Highly recommend "Mojave Dust". Charlie N.

..many highlights in this collection of sublime subtlety.
There are many highlights in this collection of sublime subtlety. Mojave Dust, the title track, is an immediate delight. Gentle slide guitar touches release the dry atmospheric heat shimmering off the Californian desert dust. Alcohol is a provocative and unusual take on the slow seduction, the comfort of the demon drink and its effect in our lives. This is excellent poetry. Something in the breeze turns to Kevin's local environment concerning the eye-burning pollution on Bristolean streets. Each song merits its own comment. Johnson's Travelling Riverside Blues (the only cover) is suggestion rather than statement. Kevin barely needs to cover this given the quality of his own writing. He has a canny knack of finding a theme in the everyday (death, alcohol, football), and forming thoughtful beauty framed by light fingerpicking and slide work. His observations are expressed by a mature youthful voice. Kevin's music is for listening to; unhurried and articulate you are gently compelled.

Consider it carved
Great songwriting and singing, beautiful guitar sound, soulful, precise slide work - everything about this album is good. Kevin Brown's original songs are thoughtful and lyrical without being maudlin, and the best just go straight to your heart. The slide work is both traditional and unique, the recording is intimate in the best sense of the word - it feels like he's sitting right in your living room, just trying out some songs for a couple of friends. An all-time favorite of mine.
