Sheree Brown is an artist and a brand, she is a multi-media experience whose music and projects inspires, educates, uplift and touch the hearts of those across generations, lifestyles, and cultures. She is a singer, songwriter, musician, producer, and teacher. Sheree began her career as a rhythm and blues and pop recording artist on the Capitol Records label in the early eighties. While on the label, she wrote and played guitar on all of the songs for her two albums Straight Ahead and The Music. They have both been re-released. Both of these albums have been digitally re-mastered on CDs. This re-release is giving Sheree another opportunity to reach out and share positive inspiration through her music.
“I would file Sheree’s work alongside the likes of Bill Withers or Carole King. One day mainstream pundits will rise from the unconsciousness they seem to drift in and out of, and herald the likes of Sheree and her kind as being the bedrock which today’s music was laid out, planned and constructed upon.”
– Toby Walker of SoulWalking
