Über Junior Brown
Although Junior Brown is best known for his exceptional country guitar and slide playing, the man can also sing and write songs. His music is like a tour through many of Americana's subgenres. Brown's hearty, beef-eating voice seems to hold these many styles together under his own signature style of writing and playing. He can switch from a lap steel slide to standard six-string chicken picking because of his custom guitar "Big Red." This "guit-steel," as Brown calls it, is a standard electric six-string guitar with a steel attachment. "Big Red" helps Brown play those lightning fast leads and then jump right into steel sliding country. Anyone who has seen a Junior Brown show will tell you the same thing: don't blink, or you might miss something.
