V.V. Brown virtually exploded onto the music scene this summer - and followed up her popularity in the charts and online by touring with Owl City, doing the rounds on talk shows, and lending her songs to commercials and TV shows. So even if you don’t think you know her music, you probably do. The British singer songwriter mixes pop, soul, rock, punk, and hip-hop to create a seasoned sound that belies her young age. V.V. describes her style as “musical mashed potatoes”- although I don’t know if Grace Jones, Eartha Kitt and Amy Winehouse qualify as potatoes.
