Do you own more than one album by Terry Callier ? Do you think the Roots have the best live show in hip-hop ? Is B.B. King a dope artist in your book ? Did you like the way the Fugees used other people’s beats at their concerts ? If you answer more than one of these question with yes you will surely dig Venus Brown.

Venus Brown is a singer/songwriter from Wilmington, North Carolina who was raised between Philly and DC. He started out as a DJ at the age of 9 and ended up writing and producing songs for Boys II Men and Patti Labelle and scoring music for films like “How To Be A Player” and “Gemini”.

In 1998 he meet up with D’Angelo and was offered a deal with D’Angelo’s label Cheeba Music. However Venus Brown released himself from the deal as a result of Virgin Records’ decision to put Cheeba Music on hold while waiting for D’Angelo to finish his second album (that took him 5 years).

With such a history it is no wonder that Venus Brown releases his debut album “Tar Baby” through the Copenhagen based Boulevard Connection label. Characterizing the good and the not so very great Black America, the album creates a raw social environment, where hope lies in the individual’s ability to pull himself by the hair and “do something”.
