We had the good fortune of connecting with Coulter Lee Brown and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Coulter Lee, what inspires you?
Inspiration is an unquantifiable bleed out of all the inner-workings of who we are. It sits dormant within all of us, waiting to carry us away. But it isn’t as mythical as people wish it was. If it were some rare, holy grail esq. intuition then we wouldn’t see so much of it. That’s why inspiration can be found in everything, and why I, in turn, am constantly inspired. It’s in one line in some song that I’ve never heard before, hidden in my “Discover Weekly” playlist. It’s in the way the rain outside my window right now is falling so light, that if I couldn’t see the ripples in the wet asphalt I’d assume that it wasn’t falling at all. It’s in my wife’s hand finding mine in her sleep. The art I love, the family that supports me, the world that I live in. All these things feed that fire that we have burning, and the light that it makes is too bright not to share. So when you ask what I’m inspired by it’s hard for me to answer without waxing poetic.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
For over a year now I have been writing my debut full length album that I will hopefully have recorded and ready to release before the end of 2021. That’s a pretty big deal for me. It’s been a dream of mine since a can remember and I finally feel like I am getting to a point in my art, lyrically, musically, and sonically, where I can do justice to what I feel like this album needs to be. I’ve only been writing specifically for this album for the past year but it’s taken all 15 years since I started to get to this point. It’s taken me a long time to find a sound that I feel like I can call mine, and I’m incredibly excited to show the world my voice. I hope there will be people there with me when the record drops, but with or without an audience it’s coming.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Anywhere in Deep Ellum that has music and drinks. Adair’s Saloon has a great Old Fashioned and some solid musicians.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I wouldn’t be were I am in my musical career without my loving wife and family.
