Born June 30, 1970 in Indianola, MS as the second of five children, singer/songwriter Cherone Brown grew up surrounded by a rich history of blues tradition and legendary entertainers. Three of the Best Blues Artist of all times came from within a seven mile radius of where Cherone was raised; BB King; two miles north, Albert King, six miles north; and Little Milton, three miles east. After joining the church choir at the age of 14, Brown realized his ability and talent for singing and began pursuing any opportunities that allowed him to showcase and developed his talent. Unfortunately, for this young man with big dreams, opportunities in the Mississippi Delta were limited.
In 1991, Brown left the Mississippi Delta with hopes of finding his place in the world. His ventures included, Little Rock, AR, Indianapolis, IN, and his current home of Dallas, TX. In 1998, Brown released the single “Slow Roller” which became one of the top ten most requested blues songs in the Mississippi Delta for several years. Due to irreconcilable differences between Brown and his Executive Producer, the single never received world-wide exposure.
But even with a full and happy life, Brown’s dreams it sing the blues still lingered in his heart. So with the support of his family and friends, Brown rolled his sleeves and decided to once again, pursue his dreams, to sing. He has opened for BB King on numerous occasions and also performed at BB’s 83rd Birthday Celebration. Brown is currently promoting his debut CD entitled “Toss It Up”
