Tom Browne

Multi-gold album artist and Billboard “Best Of” awards recipient Tom “Jamaica Funk” Browne (1954) has an unstoppable passion for new music, one that has kept him on tour and in the recording studios.

With over three decades of recordings and sharing the concert stage with luminary figures of jazz music, Tom Browne continues to captivate listeners as an entertainer who has successfully mixed stage presence and musical artistry with a sincere audience connection and warmth. “People don’t just come to hear your music,” says Browne, “they come to connect with you!”

Tom has worked with the industry’s best and brightest, having shared the concert stage with Bob James, Dave Grusin, Najee, Ron Carter, Roy Ayers, Joe Sample, Melba Moore and a host of others. Sought early on by Columbia Records, Warner Brothers and CTI, Browne was introduced (by Earl Klugh) to Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen, and subsequently signed his first recording contract with the newly formed GRP Records label. GRP and Browne produced some of the labels best hits including Funkin’ For Jamaica, Thighs High, Fungi Mama, Let’s Dance and Secret Fantasy.

To date, Tom has over sixteen solo projects on the market, including the recent Neo-Soul/Jazz sizzler entitled Legacy, released in mid 2016.

Today, Tom Browne can be found on tour regularly. After selling out late summer concerts in The United Kingdom (Pizza Express and CLF Arts Cafe) and The Netherlands (North Sea Jazz Club), he went on to headline The Capital Jazz Cruise, Oxnard and Hub City Jazz Festivals, all receiving glowing reviews.
