Songwriter, producer, vocals, guitar and drums
Donny Brown is a highly-acclaimed songwriter and performer who was one of the founding members and principal songwriters of The Verve Pipe, an American rock band whose albums have sold more than 3 million copies worldwide. He also recorded, produced and co-wrote two highly acclaimed family albums for the band in 2009 and 2013 – both of which ended up on the iTunes Best Of Year lists.
Since his departure from The Verve Pipe, Donny has released two solo EPs — the Hess Street EP and 2015’s Eponymous EP. Both of these works received numerous favorable reviews and ended up on many year end music lists. Several of his original compositions have been featured on America’s Funniest Home Videos, Roswell, Dawson’s Creek and in the Tim Allen feature film Joe Somebody.
Recently, Donny has grown and expanded his musical talents into new creative areas. Today he regularly plays drums and sings background vocals with Amy Petty, Thornetta Davis, Michael Robertson and the Broken Hearted Saviors, as well as with The Legal Matters. He recorded both of the Legal Matters releases and is now in the studio working on their third release.
Donny is currently recording new songs for his third solo release which is due out in 2020.
