Severin Browne, Jackson’s Brother, Plays Paradise

Severin Browne, Jackson’s Brother, Plays Paradise
Eight months after signing on as a staff writer, Severin Browne became the first white folk/country-type singer on the roster of Motown Records, signed on by the legendary Berry Gordy, and Browne went on to release two albums with the label. Gordy must have heard good genes ringing through. Severin and his older brother come from a musical family. Severin refers to his father, a gifted jazz musician, as "The world's greatest unpublished songwriter." Under his influence, Severin began playing piano and guitar at a very young age.

Post-Motown, the much-celebrated Severin Browne Band played to packed houses throughout the greater Southern California area, including top venues such as West Hollywood's historic Troubadour.

Today, Severin Browne is regarded as one of the most delightful performers in L.A. With five solo albums to his credit, he is a sought-after festival artist who performs solo to packed house concerts, intimate listening rooms, and venues such as the Norton Buffalo Hall. Since 2012, Severin has also toured with an "A-team" of songwriters, the Tall Men Group, and recorded three albums with them.

Severin’s easy manner in front of an audience convinces you that playing his guitar and singing his songs is an effortless and second-nature activity. Though he names Paul Simon, James Taylor, Antonio Carlos Jobim and brother Jackson Browne among his influences, these have been seamlessly folded into Severin's own unique, signature style. His brilliant lyrics invite listeners into the songs while his solid melodies carry the story from one note to the next, with a natural and inviting delivery that has charmed audiences for over 40 years.
