Brownlin Q&A

browlinuk

What are you listening to right now?

Grace Slick.

How did you get into music?

Well I remember becoming a massive Chuck Berry fan when I was about six after seeing the Johnny B. Goode scene in Back To The Future. But I got into the music business initially by putting stickers on Fatboy Slim vinyl down at Skint Records in Brighton.

If you were a London tube station, which one would you be?

I’d be Theydon Bois at the east end of the central line.  I’ve never been there but it sounds mysterious. Like the name of a prominent figure in the French Resistance!

What have you been reading lately?

The Power Of Habit by Charles Duhigg. It’s essentially a book about human behaviour but the way it’s written it’s almost like a novel.  It’s very engaging and you want to know what happens at the end! Plus you learn cool stuff.

Who is the most influential person in your life?

Well for last year it has been my Goldendoodle puppy named Dude. He has influenced what time I get up, how much exercise I have and how long I’m away from the house. He’s recently influenced me into getting some new boots by kindly retiring my last pair.

Which song do you wish you had written?

As we are in an Olympic year I’ll choose Charriots Of Fire by Vangelis.

We’re at the bar. What are you drinking?

Bourbon with one cube of ice. Or “on rock” as I like to say.

Who would you dread getting stuck in a lift with?

A horny Steven Tyler from Aerosmith.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

A Courtroom Artist. I thought it would be fun to draw pictures all day.

If you could change on thing about London, what would it be?

I’d make the voice on public transport that announces the destination have an accent to suit the location. Mile End = A bit Cockney. Brixton = A Jamaican twang. Knightsbridge = Russian or Arabic flavour.  Other than that London is perfect!

What gigs, songs or albums are you promoting at the moment?

My new single ‘All My Days’ is out this month shortly followed by my new album ‘To The Border!’. I am also DJing soon just down the road at The Old Dairy, Crouch Hill.

How can we find out more about you?

My new website www.browlin.com or browlinuk on all social media. Also pop down The Old Dairy and say hi!
