The Pulse of Entertainment: Dee Brown's New CD 'Remembering You' is Crazy
Cool and Anthony Evans' Memoir 'Unexpected Places' is Spiritually Deep
"All things work together for the good," said Urban Jazz guitarist Dee
Brown about the experiences he endured that led to the music he created for his new album "Remembering You"
(Innervision Records). "When you lose someone you ask why, that's what went through my mind. It came to me to write a
song about her."
Brown is referring to his late wife Shauna
Edwards, who was also his songwriting partner who also played in the band. After she passed away he met someone who helped
him through his lost and who understood that lost. He fell in love with her and is getting married this month - in August.
The "Remembering You" album is a sweet tribute to his late wife - and current fiancé'. The Detroit native's
album "Remembering You" offers 11 selections that boldly show his expert skills on the guitar strings, but also
shows some vocal skills also.
"There is an exit," Dee said seriously. "I didn't want to be alone so I asked Him to
send me someone else."
Brown's prayers were answered.
"I...meet a young lady ...five or six months after. I talked to her about
what I was going through and we feel in love," he explained.
The tribute to the love lost and the love
found in the form of a new album titled "Remembering You" is crazy cool. My
favorite songs on the album include #3 "Pop the Question" because his strings are funky
cool, laced with the flavor of the Latin world; #6 "I Will" because its crazy cool what Dee does on
the strings; #7 "Follow You" because his strings are popping and the vocals
are sweet; #8 "So Much" because it almost has a Big Band sound because of what
sounds like horns, and #10 "Beauty Within" because the vocals on this at times
is reminiscent of Al Jarreau.
"Remembering You" is Dee
Brown's four solo album. It features musical assistance from pianist/keyboardist/programmer Valdez
Brantley (Usher), keyboardist Bob Baldwin, flutist Althea Rene and keyboardist Nate Harasim.
With credits that include performing as the Beast in "Beauty
and the Beast" at the Hollywood Bowl and on NBC's "The Voice" Gospel artist Anthony
Evans is set to publish his memoirs, "Unexpected Places" (Harper Collins/Thomas
Nelson/W Publishing Group) August 21, 2018. Evans takes us on a mental ride of his experiences
from the church to Hollywood where he shines as a Gospel artist. The son of a pastor ministers
in the book in a way, as he tells the readers his thoughts, view on life and decision-making
I got the opportunity I took it," Anthony said about publishing his memoirs. "It
made me grateful."
Evans proves time and time again that he believes that God will turn
things around for his good and so with that attitude there is nothing stopping him. That
attitude took him to NBC's "The Voice" and as the star in the Hollywood Bowl
musical "Beauty and the Beast." In "Unexpected Places" you get to experience
those triumphant moments in his life.
"I can look back now and see what God was doing...in my career,"
he said. "You can't define success by albums sold. I will have them but not have
peace. You can write a check but you can't write a check for peace."
Anthony Evans is honest in "Unexpected Places" as he describes the
agonies he experiences as a child and as a striving artist in a field where virtue is rare.
"(As an artist) I was too
soulful for R&B and too soulful for Gospel," Evans explain about pursuing his music career. "So I
had to carve out my own lane - with my own production company."
Going the road less traveled is where the journey takes you in "Unexpected
Places." Every decision involved God and the reader sees how his relationship with
God grows to a point where he knows without a doubt that "all things work out for
have been working non-stop being true to my calling," Anthony said. "Pre-mature
success transforms into misery. You loose sight of what is waiting. There is an active
you can see this guy is deep in thought and philosophy - making "Unexpected Places"
a must read.
"Our objective is for humanity to believe in a God who works all things out for the
good," he concluded.
