Biography

Active: 1960s-1990s

Producer Steve Brown was associated with the early '70s recordings of Elton John and even back then was a hands-on studio worker who knew how to operate a mixing board and better yet, how to use it to make John's piano sound as if it was at least halfway in the door of a listener's abode. While rock and pop fashions come and go, the studio magicians that capture the sounds on tape and disc remain eternally popular, as long as they can still find the volume knob. Brown's pedigree with John hardly earned him a "soft" reputation, despite his flair for folk rock artists such as Joan Armatrading. He worked on a whole series of recordings with The Cult and also has his fans among the psychedelic crowd through early participation on a well-loved Roy Wood effort with the Wizzard band. Brown has even dabbled in country, collaborating with the somewhat gimmicky Lee Greenwood. ~ Eugene Chadbourne~ Rovi
