About Joe Brown


Joe Brown was one of the original UK Rock n Roll stars. One of the very first session men, his early career highlights include playing guitar with Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash and other US stars when they came over to Europe.

Joe went on to top the charts with his own records, had The Beatles open shows for him and in a career packed with musical highlights has also presented several National series of the Joe Brown Show on UK TV, two series Rock Show for BBC Radio 2 and finds time to do around 100 live shows a year in the UK. In 2002 he appeared at the Concert For George to honour the life and memory of his dear friend George Harrison.

As his contemporary path is extended Joe’s career has reached further heights. In the last few years he has regularly sold out almost every venue he plays some two or three nights running. In 2008 he returned to the UK Top 20 with an album which was certified as Gold in March 2008 and has now sold in excess of 120,000 copies in the UK. His 50th Anniversary Concert at The Royal Albert hall,London was a sell out and in 2009 he was awarded the coveted MOJO Music Magazine award for Lifetime achievement and awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday LAKA now has a 'The Joe Brown' soprano ukulele designed in conjunction with Joe.
