He’s been selected as a Kerrville New Folk Winner Folk in 2020 and as a 2017 Emerging Artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. In 2019, he played the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock at Bethel Woods. Brown's sophomore album Americana Comics, a collection of storytelling songs he had drawn up as comic books, is set to be released on January 10, 2021. It is heavily influenced by the songwriting of John Prine.
