V.V. Brown

vvbrown2V.V. Brown has a story that’s not unlike my own.  She’s a British model-turned-singer who’s vocal talent is only matched by her intellectual prowess.  She got offers to top UK universities including Oxford and York, only to turn them down to follow a career in music.  Yeah, that’s pretty much me to a “T”.

So was it worth it?  How do you leave an opportunity to study at these elite institutions for something as uncertain as the music industry?  If your name is V.V. Brown and you’ve got the pipes to back it up.  That’s how.  Her mix of soul, pop and electronic music span aspects of different decades from the 50′s until now, and you’d be hard-pressed to find someone with her exact style.  She’s making a name for herself and for good reason.  Her newest release Travelling Like the Light is an album full of potential singles and poppy triumphs (I daresay there’s no bad song on the entire the album.)

“Quick Fix” and “Game Over” are my personal favorites, but give the album a once over and you’ll be hooked.  Check out the video for “Crying Blood” and you’ll see why V.V. Brown is someone you need on your personal music radar (if you have one of those…I heard Sharper Image was all sold out…):
