Eban Brown – Summertime in Tokyo

Hailing from Newark, NJ, Harold Eban Brown is a world-renowned guitarist, composer and singer. Motivated by strong family support and a firm belief in God, Eban exhibited a gift for music at an exceptionally early age. Eban began playing guitar and singing with several gospel groups by age seven and as he became older his interest in studying jazz guitar was influenced by Wes Montgomery, George Benson, David T. Walker, Larry Carlton, Grant Geissman, George Duke, and Bobby Caldwell. It was during this time that Eban Brown, realized another gift, that of a songwriter. In 1991, Eban Brown became the lead vocalist for his idol artist group RAY, GOODMAN & BROWN (better known as The MOMENTS). Although Eban was originally chosen to sign on as the group’s guitarist, instead, he was instantly moved to the front line to sing with his idol group. The founding members thought his physical characteristics were too young at the time to take promotional photos for marketing, so he continued to perform with the group for two and a half years. Later Eban would become a member of the one-time Grammy-Award winning group; The MANHATTANS (featuring Gerald Alston and Blue Lovett) his stay was very short lived due to future accomplishments.

In 1993, Eban became the lead vocalist of the DELFONICS, and was the first lead vocalist of the DELFONICS to be inducted into the 98.7 KISS FM HALL OF FAME, in New York City, the NAACP HALL OF FAME, in Atlanta, GA and in 1996, received a NAACP award for his accomplishments as lead vocalist of The DELFONICS. The Delfonics, which featured Wilbert Hart, Major Harris and Eban Brown, has dazzled fans overseas, as well as the United States. In 1995, with the DELFONICS, Eban recorded a live album “Wil Hart and The DELFONICS live in Chattanooga, TN which was considered one of the group’s most treasured recordings. In April 2000, with great anticipation, Brown became the lead vocalist of the world-renowned STYLISTICS, following Mr. Russell Thompkins Jr., the original lead vocalist. As it stands, Eban is the youngest Classic Soul recording artist in the History of Classic Soul Music.
