September 2018 write up about all things Mike Brown.
"Most people have a favorite era that they like to reminisce about. For Mike Brown, owner of Temperamental Recordings in Groveland, NY, that era is the time between the World Wars...click to read more!
So summer is closing in. It's been a busy couple of months both in the studio and on the road. My brother got married, I blew up 2 vehicles, rebuilt a Wurlitzer 200 from the bottom up, and survived playing Liberty Fest in Liberty PA (always a treat). There are a bunch of shows coming up in the next few months, including one with Peter Mulvay at the 9th Ward (Babeville) in Buffalo, the Fall Down Festival, and several new places that I've never been to. Check out the shows page for details. Studio wise, I'll be working a bunch on my next record with my good buddy Alan Weatherhead next month. Speaking of Al, he was here a few months back making a record for our friend, Charles and his project Knit Delicate. Stephen Roessner was also here making a record for Chevron Bloom. I'm looking forward to both of those records. Coming up, I'll be spending the entire month of November making a record for Roscoe Bandana from Mississippi. In between then and now, I'll be finishing up records for Loaded Goat, First Ward, Laura Forster, and Justin Kubiak. Oh yeah, I also found my dream electric guitar that I've wanted since I was 13 years old. Check out the photos page to see my Instagram photos. I Hope you are all enjoying these fleeting days of summer.
Hey guys. Mike here. I wanted let you all know that we did a total re-build of the site, put up a couple old links from the past, but for the most part this is a new start. The studio page (Temperamental Recordings) will be up and running shortly as well. I plan on doing an update here about once a month. Anything else I'm up to is pretty well documented on my facebook page and instagram account. Also, all upcoming shows can be found on the shows page. The new record is coming along nicely, and I can't want to share it with all of you! See you guys soon!
"When life gives you lemons, as the popular saying goes, the resourceful among us make lemonade.
Such is the case with Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer-recording engineer, and Geneseo native Mike Brown, who doesn’t shy away from discussing the succession of hand injuries that forced him to come up with the workaround “trilling” method of guitar picking that has become....click to read more

With the help of fans such as yourself, the 'Geneseo' boys were able to raise enough money to fly out and attend the 56th GRAMMY Awards. Click this link to learn more about Geneseo and the artists.
