Media Connoisseur BL’EVE Brown is a seasoned Artist, Producer, & Videographer. BL’EVE was born in the reggae capital of the world, Jamaica W.I., and moved to Harlem, New York at a young age. His family finally settled in New Jersey giving him multiple experiences, creating a musical foundation that was set early in life. When you hear BL’EVE’s sound from production to lyrics, you hear more than his East Coast upbringing and West Indian roots, you hear the NEW EAST COAST (N.E.C).
BL’EVE started his musical career as a producer/engineer where he used his drumming background to develop a unique sound. Through his production unit Platinum Beat Service, BL’EVE worked with independent and major labels, as well as several influential brands. He has received noteworthy credits for projects with Def Jam, Epic Records, and The Life Files. BL’EVE was also a very influential part in introducing curated and live music to the art fair Aqua Art Miami, during Art Basel in 2013. All of these experiences laid a foundation that has helped him to tweak his sound and sharpen his technique for the New East Coast (N.E.C) movement.
In 2010 BL’EVE began sharing his music online which lead to the 2011 release of his debut EP, Short Thoughts. The response was overwhelming with a large international audience and over 100,000 downloads. BL’EVE also received commercial radio play from Hot 97 & Power 105 in NYC, but he wanted to develop his sound further. After growing his production unit Platinum Beat Service Inc. and refining his sound BL’EVE found his lane.
The first 2 tracks “I’m About That” and “Payroll” released on SoundCloud.com from his upcoming project “Cosmosis”, have had a tremendous response now with over 80 million plays combined. Due to the current climate of music on the east coast, BL’EVE has found an organic fan base and knows now is the time to release his N.E.C. sound to the masses. The records are now building strong numbers on Spotify and a few other major outlets.
In late 2016 BL’EVE released his first video from his upcoming project “Cosmosis”, which was a split video between “I’m About That” and “Payroll”. BL’EVE is no stranger to video production and his artistic vision will definitely be shown in this project. He has been hired to shoot and produce video pieces for multiple labels.
BL’EVE Brown has a fresh new sound coming out of the East Coast breaking down industry barriers, by capturing the ears and hearts of fans one person at a time. BL’EVE has unique goals on being an artist and he states, “I just want to introduce a new vibe that is authentic to the east coast and even though most people don’t like change it’s too late, I’m here now”.
