Pieta Brown

Pieta Brown (born Iowa City, Iowa, in 1973) is an American singer and songwriter. She is daughter of American folk musician Greg Brown.

After releasing the album Remember the Sun (2007), Brown caught the attention of legendary producer Don Was (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt) and teamed up with him to make Shimmer (2009), an EP of stripped-down, just-formed original songs, hailed as “particularly poignant” (Boston Globe) that charted on Americana and Folk radio.

Pieta Brown (born Iowa City, Iowa, in 1973) is an American singer and songwriter. She is daughter of American folk musician Greg Brown.

After releasing the album Remember the Sun (2007), Brown caught the attention of legendary producer Don Was (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt) and teamed up with him to make Shimmer (2009), an EP of stripped-down, just-formed original songs, hailed as “particularly poignant” (Boston Globe) that charted on Americana and Folk radio. With a one-two punch, (stepping seamlessly into the role of producer with right hand man, guitar slinger, Bo Ramsey) Pieta quickly followed Shimmer with the full-length album, One and All (2010), delivering hypnotic melodies and raw, soul-tinged grooves, with her signature vocals and an electrifying band. Upon the release of One and All, Pieta got the call to join Mark Knopfler’s North American tour, following that with a string of dates with John Prine, a full orchestral show with Brandi Carlile, and her own headlining tour of Australia.

Distinguishing herself from the crowd of singer/songwriters Pieta is being called “one of the best modern songwriters” (Sonic Boomers) and “a genuine talent” (iTunes). Or, as one of Pieta’s own songwriting heroes, Iris Dement, put it, “one of the best poets I’ve heard in a long damn time.” Even her own father, beloved folk icon, Greg Brown, has just recorded one of her songs, to be included on his upcoming album to be released in the Spring of 2011. « hide
