Matt Brown has just released his latest awe inspiringly poignant piano piece Mona Lisa, featuring the timeless talent of Rudy Brown, Jr. With a strong R&B Soul influence and a little bit of jazz thrown in there for good measure, the track unwinds through an immersive flow of tentatively caressed piano keys against one of the sweetest voices I’ve heard, in well, I can’t remember.
There’s a ring of innocence within the track, which is definitely a rarity to come across, the resounding sound grounds you into the romanticism of the song. The Brunswick, New Jersey based composer has been making music for over 6 years, dabbling each genre, until with his Jazz/R&B mash up he found his uniquely spectacular sound. Listening to his composition of R. Kelly’s ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ took me back, if an artist can smash that piece, then they deserve the upmost respect in my book.
The list of Matt Brown’s influences seems to go on forever, from My Chemical Romance to BB King, Portishead to Slick Rick, they all play a part in the delectable making of Matt Brown as a pioneering artist who can tackle pretty much anything he sets his mind to, from remixes, to original scores, mix tapes and covers. I have a feeling this won’t be the last we see from Matt Brown in the future!
