Knox Brown is a vocalist, songwriter and producer who will soon be making his name known.
Currently recording in Los Angeles where he was signed for publishing by 'Big' John Platt, the legendary hip hop mogul responsible for signingJay-Z, Kanye West, Rick Ross, Usher, Drake, Young Jeezy and Snoop Dogg among others, the highest echelons of the hip hop world have fallen in love with Knox, leading to him writing and producing for Jay Z, Mary J Blige, Aloe Blac, and the UK's own Jess Glynne on forthcoming tracks. Further credentials include producing and co-writing the hit 'Blackout' for Wretch32 as well as Jacob Banks' 'The Monologue' EP.
Born in Jamaica, Knox moved with his family to Birmingham in his teens. Growing up between Jamaica and the UK, influences from his musical heritage of dub and soul encountered contemporary UK electronica, forward thinking hip-hop, and American r'n'b and blues. Working alongside different artists as producer and vocalist as well as on his own self-helmed music, he incorporates this eclectic set of influences into his own distinct and wide-ranging production and his vocal style.
Knox's first solo track to emerge, 'Harry's Code', showcases his keen adeptness and energy both in front of and behind the production desk, drawing from classic blues and soul, dub-inflicted echo and Knox's gospel indebted vocals.
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
