Sam Brown and the Concert for George


Long on the list of my coveted
guests has been singer-songwriter Sam Brown. The daughter of Joe
Brown – an early UK rock legend – and Vicki Brown – an
astonishingly gifted singer herself – Sam’s career as an artist
kicked off in 1988 with Stop!, the first of seven albums. (The
first letter of the titles spell out her name – the 8th
installment, titled Number 8 is due out this
year.) Sam is also known for singing with Pink Floyd and David
Gilmour, as well as on television and on tour with Jools Holland.
It was with Jools that Sam took center stage at the
2002 Concert for George, stealing the show with her
reading of George’s last recorded composition, “Horse To The
Water.” 

She has remained active as a performer and a recording artist,
despite tragically losing her ability to sing in 2007, following
surgery. The mysterious condition forced a re-think of her career
and led to her establishing a decade-long running school empowering
folks to take up ukulele. In this conversation, we discuss her
career and the struggles of being an artist – her friendship with
the Harrisons and working with George – the concert – and how she’s
managed the challenging events that followed. 

Sam is resourceful and an artist whose rich catalog is worth
exploring. You can check out her work here:
