Tobin Brown
Tobin Brown Bio:

It's just me...and a few friends. Hi - I'm Tobin. I write and sing songs. Most of my songs are written with the acoustic guitar and then other instruments are added. I tend to write songs with a story or background. I think it's important to put thought into making music. It's not just a bunch words thrown together or some crappy melody. It's something I actually thought about.

I know that when you really listen, you'll hear what I have to say.

Song Background: Beauty Queen

When I was in elementary school there was a girl named Barbie. Red curly hair, special shoes and a metal back brace. Not too pretty.
I've thought of her often and wondered how her life had turned out. Did she morph into a butterfly? I couldn't knock the vision of her coming home everyday to a loving mother who would tell her just how beautiful she was. I hope she got the love she deserved. This song is for her.

Song Background: Lonely Man

I was in Washington DC with friends, visiting the Smithsonian WW2 Museum. I was reading letters that soldiers (who hadn't survived) had sent home to their loved ones - it was very moving. Outside the museum, was a homeless man clothed in his uniform from the Vietnam era begging for money. I gave him change, he gave me this song. Everyone has a story. Maybe this one is his.
