Severin Browne with Laurie McLain in Concert
Severin Browne performs solo to packed house concerts, intimate listening rooms, and even an occasional almost-rowdy bar crowd with friends from his SoCal roots. He is a sought-after guest in many singer-songwriter festivals and shows, and is regarded as one of the most accomplished performers in the Los Angeles area. Severin’s easy manner in front of an audience makes it seem as if playing his guitar and singing his songs is effortless and second-nature. His brilliant lyrics invite listeners into the songs while his solid melodies carry the story from one note to the next. His delightful and inviting delivery has charmed audiences for almost 40 years.
Severin Browne was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1949 to a musical family. His 3-year old sister immediately took him next door saying that she already had a brother. Severin's father, Clyde Jack Browne, was a native Californian who was in Germany with the U.S. Army newspaper, The Stars And Stripes. He had met Severin's mother, Beatrice Dahl, while stationed in Alaska and she had followed him to Germany when he was transferred there. Shortly after Severin was born, the Browne family returned to California and moved into a home that was built by Severin's grandfather in the 1920s. The Spanish style home is located in an old part of Los Angeles and is where Severin spent much of his childhood.
Severin will be joined by singer/songwriter Laurie McLain for this date.
While Americana Folk Singer/songwriter Laurie McClain accompanies herself expressively on guitar, ukulele and harmonica, it's her honey voice that soothes and her powerful lyrics that heal hearts. Reminiscent of 60s/70s folk, her songs are messages of hope for a weary world.
"Laurie's voice feels like my favorite moisturizer. It sinks in quickly and starts to heal. Her songs go deep and they stay with you."-SUZY BOGGUSS
"Will very much touch your emotions in a most valuable way."-STEVE FORBERT
"Laurie McClain is my favorite songwriter in the whole world."-DONNA MULHOLLAN (STILL ON THE HILL)
"Laurie is a true artist. She opens hearts and sings from a place of depth and love. She held my tough NYC audience with her masterful storytelling, strong lyrics and vulnerable voice, moving them to tears and laughter."-KATHRYN'S HOUSE CONCERT SERIES, NYC
"Laurie's voice has a raw, genuine classic folk resonance that pulls you into every song."-SINGER MAGAZINE
