The more than amazing Jamieson "Junior" Brown is an American country demon guitarist & singer. He’s released nine studio albums and has charted on the Billboard Country Singles chart. His signature instrument is the "guit-steel" double neck guitar, a hybrid of electric guitar and lap steel guitar.
Junior quickly became a local success in Austin, Texas, as the house band at the Continental Club. His debut album was 1990's "12 Shades of Brown," released by the British Demon Records; it was re-released in 1993 on Curb Records in the U.S., followed by "Guit with It." In 1995, Brown released "Semi Crazy," and followed it with 1997's "Long Walk Back." In 1996, he was featured on the Beach Boys' now out-of-print album "Stars and Stripes Vol. 1" performing a cover of their 1962 hit "409". The song features Junior playing guitar and singing lead with the Beach Boys singing harmonies and backing vocals. He appeared in the music video for "Honky Tonk Song" by George Jones in 1996 and also won the CMA Country Music Video of the Year award that year for his video, "My Wife Thinks You're Dead," which featured 6-foot-7-inch Gwendolyn Gillingham.
Junior's music has been showcased on various TV shows and movie soundtracks, including Me, Myself and Irene, SpongeBob SquarePants and the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard remake, in which he also played the narrator.
Although the man plays such neotraditional country styles as honky-tonk, Western swing, etc., few of his performances will finish without some blues and Tex-Mex tunes playing as well as surf-rock instrumentals.?
If you're already a fan then you know what all the fuss is about. But if you haven't heard Junior live, "Guit With It"
