“Brown isn’t just a rich-voiced master songwriter but a sculptor of sound, couching his lyrics in Eno-like sonic effects.” – The Guardian
“Lilting compositions that call to mind the greyscale pastorals of Nick Drake, Burt Jansch…” – SPIN
Yorkshire-born singer/songwriter Findlay Brown returns with a brand new single, the stunning and delicate “When I’m With You,” a classic love song that reminisce endless summer idyll, which swaddles hopeful lyrics in gentle strumming and soothing strings as “the moon provides the light.”
The new single is Findlay’s first material since the release of his 2018 album Not Everything Beautiful Is Good. The Copenhagen-based musician has been busy writing and recording new music with producer Tor Bach Kristensen and award-winning string arranger Davide Rossi (Coldplay, Alicia Keys, Jon Hopkins). It’s some of his most personal and intimate music to date, focusing on celebrating the power of perspective — from the worldly insights we acquire over time to the role nature plays in helping us to reflect and grow. A joyride through ‘70s AOR, chamber folk and sandy soft-rock influences, Findlay’s forthcoming new material will invite you to kick back and enjoy the trip.
Since 2007, Findlay has released four studio albums and built up a loyal and dedicated fanbase during that time. From his acclaimed debut Separated By The Sea, which The Guardian called “brilliantly melancholic,” to 2010’s Bernard Butler-produced “Love Will Find You,” through to Slow Light in 2015 and his Nettwerk debut LP Not Everything Beautiful Is Good.
Over the years, his music has been featured and appeared in various international publications, including The New York Times, SPIN, Mojo, Uncut, BBC, Vice, Vogue, The LA Times, Stereogum, and more. He’s appeared on national TV, performing on BBC Two’s TOTP2, and on the Late Show with David Letterman in 2010.
