V V Brown is an Independant POP singer songwriter from Northampton UK.
Artist, mother, activist, journalist, and teacher V V Brown, who took a 6-year hiatus from her musical career to attend to her mental health and focus on raising her two young children, makes her very welcome return with the release on March 27th 2023 of her uplifting, thought-provoking anthem “Black British”.
V V has also just announced that she will be making her first live performance in over 10 years on May 23rd – V V Brown: An Intimate Musical Experience will be held at The Lower Third and tickets will be on sale from 9am on Monday March 27th https://link.dice.fm/B26791284813
What it means to be Black British is an important and complex question and one that V V will be exploring throughout the journey on this new project. The striking artwork for the single and the accompanying video (out April 5th), which uses the power of contemporary dance to reveal the narrative, was conceived, created, and directed by V V.
V V has also written a long-form essay around the subject which will be published on release. “Black British”, released on the artist’s own label YOY Records, was inspired when V V began delving into the purest musical influences of her early childhood such as J Dilla, Erykah Badu, Common, Kim Burrell, and British records by Roots Manuva, Soul to Soul and Omar.
