“I started collaborating on music virtually with Martyn Fanko, who is British,” Brown said. “He’s an audiophile and he’s been a buddy of mine for over 12 years. We worked in high end audio-video together and he has a knack for music. We were talking in 2020 and we decided to start sending each other music. We started messing around and that grew into the SiL-O-ET project. We’ve been working on these really cool, funky electronic songs. It’s very much like Jamiroquai and Beck, kind of a very cheeky sound.”
Early in the pandemic, Brown began assembling a home studio and learning digital audio recording.
“If I wanted to do this on my own, I had to learn how to do it,” he said. “I got the gear and started figuring things out. It was a huge learning curve but it worked out well. The SiL-O-ET stuff sounds so different from what I’ve been doing with TJ. I love being able to showcase the versatility of what I can do and the musicianship I’m working with. I always planned to release both EPs around the same time, but I didn’t want to combine them and try to make one super band. Each one has its own identity. They’re so different so it’s not like I’m trampling over anything.”
