A 24/7 melody maker, who can't sit still for a moment unless he has an instrument in his hands to work out his next composition. Influenced by such renowned musicians as Newton Faulkner & John Butler, his mastery of the guitar is a treat for the ears & eyes as he performs picking, strumming, tapping, percussion & singing, simultaneously to produce glorious results. Browne has created techniques all his own, which he terms "flick harmonics" and "spank harmonics" and on stage he truly shines, bringing his songs to life with his dextrous hands & soulful voice.

Browne explains his mission statement: "I want to show people that music is a way to express what they've been through personally. See, there are a lot of people out there who think it's all over [for them]. Every day is a new step. Music is my gateway to fighting for freedom for the whole world. If I don't make it, I'll die trying." His musical potential was clear early on, gaining an A* in GCSE Music, BTEC in Music, Performing Arts & Drama and a Diploma in Music. He cut his lyric writing, composing & performing teeth with indie/alternative band "A Perfect Sin" between 2006 & 2008. In September of 2007, they won a "battle of the bands" competition, which included 70 bands from all over North Northamptonshire. In November of that same year, Browne had surgery to his arm, badly burned in a childhood accident, and still performed a slot with the band on Market Harborough radio four days later. Proof, if needed, of his dedication to his music. Following an amicable disbanding of "A Perfect Sin" and to escape his personal circumstances, he moved to Liverpool in early 2008 where he spent time busking on the city streets. His skilled musicianship was soon recognized and he spent time playing with over 20 local bands, honing & crafting his guitar skills.

It was at this time that he met David Curtis Katie Gray and having and instant rapport, Browne agreed to work on the album together at Hat Man Records Ltd studio. David Gray had this to say about Browne: "On first meeting [Chris], I could see he was a strong individual with vulnerability/humility, passion for his music, and a strong desire to change the world's point of view. Blessed with a talent for words, and guitar ability beyond his years, working with Chris on his album has made me see another side to him, beyond his stage persona". Browne's reverence for music is unmistakable, but he is also clear about the importance of the fans: "I believe that music is nothing with out people, meaning, all bands and artists are incomplete without fans! YOU are the people and YOU are the power…...peace" He has continued to play locally & in and around the Sheffield area as well as also busking around the UK and will be arranging a UK and world tour to promote his original own written music.

"Life is music, you've got to use it, can't abuse it or you'll lose it". Chris Browne aka Browne - browneproject. Peace and love to all in this world!
