Mr. Brown, the highly-anticipated and critically-hailed album by Georgia's own Sleepy Brown hits store shelves today, October 3rd and encompasses all things grown and all things sexy.

It is nearly impossible to listen to a Pat “Sleepy” Brown record and not hear the influence of a revolutionary amalgamation of Funk, Rhythm & Blues, Soul and Jazz music. After all, his father, Jimmy Brown was the lead singer and saxophonist of the 70’s Funk/Soul ensemble Brick, which is where the talented singer/songwriter/Grammy-winning producer honed his musical skills to a ripe perfection.

While Sleepy, along with partners Rico Wade and Ray Murray created the Grammy winning, multi-platinum production crew Organized Noize (Outkast, En Vogue, TLC), as well as formed the talented Atlanta collective known as The Dungeon Family, his success is no overnight affair.

In 2004, Brown signed his first solo deal with Interscope records and made an album which was to be called Grown And Sexy (it should be noted that when his album was shelved everyone and their mother bit his title). One year later Brown secured release from the label, and was promptly signed by longtime friend Big Boi of Outkast fame, to his new Virgin Records distributed label, Purple Ribbon. “With me and Big it’s just straight family,” he says. “We do business together, but in a lot of ways he’s always been like my little brother, even though he’s gone on to have all this success. So it’s just a beautiful thing that all these years later we can still be working together towards the same goals of making great music.”

And that is exactly what they’ve done. Produced mostly by Brown and his Organized Noize brethren, the LP boast work from the Neptunes and Carl Mo as well as appearances by Big Boi. “I just want to bring that real soulful vibe back to the music,” Sleepy says. “And I think we made something that is just different than anything else that people have heard, even though hopefully, it’ll remind them of the records from back in the day.”
