ARTIST EINSTEIN BROWN
Surrounded by some of the great West Indian musicians while he was growing up, Einstein was destined, it seems, to play music. In 1979, his desire to play the steel pan at a higher level motivated him to join the Invaders Steel Orchestra and he was soon in demand to play with a number of steel bands including the Woodbrook Modernaires, who then went on to win the battle of the bands at Queen's Hall, Trinidad's equivalent of Carnegie Hall. Toward the end of 1979, he accepted an offer to play aboard a cruise ship. During this time he was also called to appear in a Heineken beer commercial. After more travel with various groups, he immigrated to the U.S. in 1982.
In America, Einstein began performing with the Trinidad Steel Band and the L.A. Desperados. During this time, he also started his first band as a leader, called Caribe, which played the Hollywood circuit and the L.A. Street Scene. In 1984, he formed Sapadilla and recorded his first single, “Don't Worry, Be Happy”, which was a European release. In 1991, Einstein released the album, Humanize the Earth, on which he collaborated with the popular guitarist, Eric Gale. Together, they wrote the hit single, “Drive-by Shooting”, in a matter of hours. This song was written to raise money for a fellow musician and good friend that lost his sight due to a drive-by. In 1993, the song was released in Costa Rica.
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain"
TELEVISION & FEATURE FILMS
Since that time, Einstein has appeared in numerous television shows, commercials and feature films, as well as MTV music videos, including one in which he performed with the great R&B singer, Chaka Khan. Einstein has also performed for entertainment legends such as Debbie Reynolds, Carol Burnett and Michael Jackson.
