J.T. Brown

Tampa producer and singer-songwriter J.T. Brown creates soulful “spacefolk” as he describes it, and his impressive lyrical prowess and southern sensibility is especially present on his recently released LP Phantom Heart. Recorded in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the streets of Tampa, Phantom Heart is the perfect melding of the city and the wild.

Tampa, FL
Pass-a-Grille Beach
"I’m a big fan of Pass-a-Grille. It’s got a cool charm to it. It’s not as crowded as St. Pete beach. There is a rock jetty with a paved path on it, that extends a few hundred feet out into the gulf, and at night it’s a good place to star-gaze.” — J. T. Brown

"Jannus Live for bigger shows. I've played that stage a lot and it's my favorite in the southeast. As an audience member it's great because it's loud and you're surrounded by buildings in a courtyard so it automatically feels more like a collective experience." — J.T. Brown
