Who is recording artist D. Brown?
From Junior High School Boys Glee Club to being a vocal major at Ohio State University, music is a major part of Derek Brown’s life. Derek L. Brown, aka D. Brown, was born to musical parents. From the very beginning, he was surrounded by music, and now he is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He uses what God has blessed him with to create music that has been described as “unique, authentic, worshipful, eclectic and sincere.”
As an adult, Derek started his musical career through singing for and with various artists and then later picked up the guitar to support them musically. Derek’s debut CD “Eclectic” produced in 2011, showcases the diversity of the musical influences he’s collected throughout his life. From Praise & Worship, Contemporary Christian, and Hip Hop, to Jazz, Rock, Spoken Word and R&B, he weaves together various styles to produce a distinct sound. In this album, Derek announced to the world that the God he serves is awesome, full of grace and mercy, a restorer, and that He is a good God. On TBN in 2012 he had the opportunity to share not only his music but his testimony of how God has been a healer, a deliverer and a restorer in his life. In 2010, Derek founded Eclectic Music Conceptions (EMC) — a music production company he uses to create music that inspires, encourages and moves listeners to draw closer to God. From writing, producing and recording he uses EMC not only to create music for himself but for other artists.
In 2013, Derek produced “And the Word Became Flesh”, a CD of music and spoken word; a collaboration of soul and spirit. Working alongside spoken word artists Tifani “The Prophetic Poetess” Kendrick, Javier Sanchez and Barbara Fant, this live recording captures the energy and the power of the spoken word. It has been described as “jazzy, smooth, inspirational and thought provoking.” The latest project released by D. Brown through EMC is a new album entitled “Eclectic Vol II.” After taking some time to write and reflect, Eclectic Vol II is a continuation of his initial release Eclectic in that it speaks to the goodness of God using various styles of music. From the Christian Hip Hop anthem (CHH) “Stand Up” featuring B. Moses and RaShawn Truss; the smooth jazz sound of “DaySpring” featuring Chris Hoyte to the gospel infused “You Are Worthy of All The Praise” Eclectic Vol II displays the love of God in different ways.Over the years, God has blessed Derek to either perform or record with amazingly gifted singers and musicians. From Tim Hitchcock & Spirit of Truth, Tanesha Holland-Davis, Daniel Winans, Rosetta Perry, Christon Gray, Milton Ruffin, Keith Reed Jr. & New Sound of Worship, Leon Timbo and Nia Allen, God is continuing to use him to spread the “good news” of Jesus Christ through music.
