Meet Hound brown

Born into the chaos of the late 60’s; torn between the unyielding philosophies of the Bible Belt, the spirituality of the civil-rights movement and the idealism of the hippie-culture, The Hound Brown is part classic storyteller, part southern medicine man. An artist who purposely plants a soulful poetic musical landscape, influenced by the Allman Brothers & Motown, Jackson Browne & Little Feat, Lyle Lovett, Guy Clark & Randy Newman. Even Mark Twain and the Bible. With one goal in mind. Creating an authentic lasting connection of the heart, mind, and Soul.


An accomplished Nashville-based musician/singer-songwriter/author/voice actor, Hound began his professional career becoming a sought-after drummer-percussionist for Grammy, CMA, ACM winning major national recording artists for both touring and studio session-work. He has written, recorded, and toured with the likes of the Zac Brown Band, John Berry, Martina McBride, Suzy Boggus, and Billy Dean among many others. A creative force by nature, he has performed on Grammy winning projects, co-written a major ballet-musical, “The Bell Witch Ballet,” and penned numerous cuts, including the 2007 Joe Nichols title track, “Real Things.” In addition, Hound has written and continues to create and produce many commercial jingles and theme songs for television, radio, and the digital landscape. Including the original theme song for the World Food Championships, “Eat It Up.”


As an author, he wrote the 2010 music-instructional book, “The Nashville Drummer.” His genuine literary gifts were first exposed later that year cover to cover in the Zac Brown Band published folk-art cookbook entitled, “Southern Grounds.” In 2017, Hound published a major non-fiction memoir, garnering rave reviews.

Hound is currently working on a major album project of uplifting soulful Americana tunes entitled, “The Medicine Wheel” scheduled for a 2024 release.
