TJ Brown Since 1969 I have been a guitarist and singer in several local rock and country bands. Over the years my early influences from the Beatles, Doobie Brothers, James Taylor, Jimmy Buffet and George Strait to present day artists such as Kenney Chesney, Zac Brown and Green Day have helped cultivate my style of play. 20 of those years have been spent as a lead guitarist and vocalist for a popular country band Southbound on Long Island,
performing at such venues as Westbury Music Fair. Working as an acoustic soloist has enabled me to breath new life into the music that has been a part of my life for over 40 years. I enjoy entertaining at some of the Long Island wineries as well as private affairs and local cafes.
