Profile Singer / songwriter DAVID BROWN started his musical career in the mid-eighties fronting several bands in the US South East area, touringthe club circuit and supporting major names such as Starship, Eddie Money or Van Zant. Brown wrote as well many songs for Nashville artists and in the middle recorded some of his own tunes for a future solo release. “Believe” was his debut CD, recorded & co-produced by himself and released through a small private label in 1995.

But most of the wonderful 8 tracks on this criminally unknown album were composed during the ’80s, so what we found here is a pure AOR / Melodic Rock set of songs with all the magic of the aureate decade. If you are a sucker (like me) for classy Stan Bush, Jimmy Harnen, Nelson or Jimi Jamison melodies then you’ll adore DAVID BROWN’s “Believe”. Some of this material also reminds me of Mark Free’s ‘hired vocalist’ eighties works for other artists.

Plenty of terrific harmony vocals, lovable choruses and highly melodic instrumentation, “Believe” sports a very good production for an independent release. A true rarity and a little gem for any AOR / Melodic Rock fan, DAVID BROWN’s “Believe” is a must have in your collection.
