A true musician's musician, Clarence Gatemouth Brown
mastered the guitar, fiddle, drums, viola, harmonica,
piano, mandolin and bass. Gatemouth's smooth blend of
Texas style swing with Jazz, Country and Cajun music
has altered the definition of the Blues. His versatility
singles him out as an architect of modern Blues sounds.
Although primarily known as a rhythm & blues artist,
Brown's music truly defied any simple description.
Influenced by big bands and horn players, his work on
the guitar and fiddle exhibited the music he grew up
hearing along the Gulf Coast.
Brown was born in Vinton, Louisiana, and raised not far
from the Gulf Coast in Orange, Texas
