Blake Brown is an American singer-songwriter from Denver, Colorado.
After participating in many collaborative projects, Blake Brown formed The American Dust Choir. His idea was to have the flexibility of playing solo, as a duo (with his wife Tiffany), and in various incarnations including a revolving cast of musician friends when they were able to join him. The American Dust Choir includes friends and musicians of some well-known groups such as The Fray, The Films, and Tennis. The line-up has since galvanized and includes mainstays Tiffany Brown (keyboard/vocals), Adam Blake (drums), Jason Legler (bass), and Trent Nelson (guitar). The band released its debut full length LONG WAY HOME in March 2018 and has been playing shows in support since. Brown’s music is rooted in acoustic sounds, and characterized by his seemingly simple, but nuanced, melodies and heartfelt lyrics. Marked by a surprisingly captivating subtleness, Brown’s music and stage presence leaves audiences with something to think about and always wanting more.
Following the release of LONG HOME WAY, the band performed multiple official showcases at SXSW 2018 in Austin, Texas, including an official showcase at the legendary Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater supporting Keith Urban. Following SXSW, Brown went on the road supporting Justin Townes Earle in May as an acoustic duo.
Rounding out 2018, Blake Brown & the American Dust Choir performed regional summer festivals in the Colorado area, performed as direct support for acts such as Rayland Baxter, The Band of Heathens, ZZ Ward, and appeared at the GAS Feed & Seed Festival IV. Two songs from LONG WAY HOME, “Fever Dreams” and “Between the Lines” were licensed for MTV’s Teen Mom OG.
Blake and band retuned to the studio with Producer Joe Richmond in the last days of December 2018 and completed new material scheduled for release in 2019.
