When Divine Brown enters a room the energy becomes electric. It’s
that classic combination of attitude and altitude, for with Divine,
people instantly recognize her as music royalty which she carries
fearlessly having earned rather than borrowed her crown. It’s in her
ability to at once invoke the empowered sexuality of Pam Grier’s
seventies superwoman, Foxy Brown, while remaining immediately
contemporary, exciting and fresh that drives her appeal. Fearless. Foxy.
Fresh. Ladies and Gentlemen it’s time you know Divine Brown.

When “The Love Chronicles” (2008) won the Juno® Award for Best
R&B Album in 2009, Divine Brown had already achieved a level of
success that most often eludes young girls with dreams of making it big
as a singer. A Toronto native, Brown’s fearless approach to life first
showed up as a steadfast commitment to her music in the face of
half-hearted support from her working class Jamaican family who would
most likely have preferred she pursue a safe path like Nursing rather
than the mercurial business of Music. Yet, armed with the gift of a
5-octave vocal range and a love for the Soul music she soaked up
listening to American radio, Brown set out to make something happen. And
happen it did, though not overnight. First came the years of countless
performances in clubs honing her vocal craft nightly singing from the
canon of Chaka, Patti and the Queen herself – Aretha. As performances
led to recording, Brown quickly learned that her audience responded to
her fresh takes on classic soul styles. Her self-penned tune “Old Skool
Love,” charted a path for International success driving the Gold sales
of her eponymous debut album (Divine Brown, 2005). The single and video
whet the appetites of U.S. Soul music fans, and a Reggae remix version
secured the attention of Riddim junkies in Jamaica fueling Divine to
reach for something more.

Determined to continue her evolution as an artist, Divine began
recording the songs that would eventually become the award winning album
“The Love Chronicles.” A concept album that draws upon Brown’s affinity
for soul music across the generations, the largely self penned project
yielded the sexually empowered “Lay It On The Line,” the deeply
emotional “One More Chance,” and the chart topping homage to 80’s pop
“Sunglasses.” A Canadian Bravo TV special “Live from the Concert Hall”
brought her live show to audiences across the country further
solidifying her reputation as a talent to be revered.

In possession of an empowered sexuality that allows her to navigate
the dark waters of the music business with confidence, Divine Brown
brings Foxy to a new generation. A single mom who candidly admits that
with the birth of her daughter her will to succeed kicked into
overdrive, Divine Brown makes the fictitious Foxy Brown a mere figment
of men’s imagination. Her tightly toned frame honed from high energy
performances and hours training in Capoeira with her Brazilian Mestre,
Brown appears prepared to prove to women around the globe that “sexy”
and “Mom” aren’t mutually exclusive. The walk, the talk, the sense of
personal style all contribute to the sense that with Divine the heat is
tangible and natural, akin to Aretha Franklin’s “Natural Woman” come to
life. As with many women, Divine’s fearless approach yields a satisfying
outcome and serves as a new millennium role model for those who simply
choose to pay attention.

After a three year hiatus, Divine Brown marks her return to the
spotlight with a collection of brand new music for her fans. Executive
Produced by Divine, “Something Fresh” continues her commitment to the
hearty soul music of yore with a bright, contemporary spin courtesy of
noted songwriter/producers The Rezza Brothers of Toronto (Obie Trice,
DMC, The Commodores). Divine offers that the new album possesses an “old
school vibe with a new school twist” and as such, “Something Fresh”
draws upon the blueprint of her first two hit albums displaying her
retro sensibilities while fully representing today through its lyrical
content, musical arrangements and hip-hop inspired production values to
be a decidedly fresh contemporary Soul/R&B offering.
In a landscape cluttered with autotuned Poptarts and half-hearted songcraft, Divine and the quality of her music stand apart.

“Something Fresh” cloaks Divine’s essential romanticism in an
inspired array of musical settings. The party jumps off with the first
single, “Gone” – a 60’s R&B flavored “Boy, you done me wrong” number
characterized by rhythm piano and sprightly horn charts. Next, a detour
into a classic R&B two-step on the romantic duet “Smile feat.
Adrian Rezza” and then on to the hip-hop tinged title tune “Something
Fresh” which, through its lilting melody offers a subtle nod to Divine’s
Jamaican heritage. Then, Divine manages to do the what so many singers
attempt their entire careers but never quite manage to achieve; she
transforms the rhythmically dark and brooding “Leave ‘Em Alone” into an
instant classic. An ode to internal conflict and romantic addiction,
it’s the kind of story-song that makes the hair on your forearms stand
to attention as your ears hang on every chord modulation, perfectly
placed syllable and nuanced turn of phrase. Next up – “All Around The
World feat. Kardinal Offishall and Karl Wolf” serves up a breezy,
perfectly timed cool-down. “Days Like This,” a fitting inspirational
song for girls with a dream provides a departure from the album’s
romantic themes, as does “On The Corner” and “Try,” but that’s not to
say the album overall isn’t inspirational, because it most certainly is.
In fact Divine often frames her stories by referencing “Mama said…” and
who could be more inspirational than your mama? “Something Fresh”
closes out with the inspired wordplay of “A Love Divine,” which could
serve as a message to her fans, for as sure as, it’s all part of
Divine’s plan for global domination which includes a torrent of new
fresh music, a stylish web series showcasing the behind the scenes
recording of the album, and continuing her fearless commitment to making
a career in the “old skool” way; with her talent. She’s already proven
she’s Fearless, Foxy, and Fresh – so, like the taste of home baked bread
compared with the flat dry confection of the Poptarts, audiences around
the world will now know that Divine Brown has “Something Fresh” indeed.
