 About Keisa Brown
Keisa (pronounced "Key-sa") Brown was born in Mississippi. Blessed with a powerful, one-of-a-kind singing voice, she apprenticed in churches and secular venues, making a name for herself in Chicago and then Los Angeles. Unlike her "first cousin" of Southern rhythm and blues, Peggy Scott-Adams, Brown never had the good fortune to establish a longtime partnership with a producer/songwriter/mentor as Adams did with Jimmy Lewis. Brown's collaboration with Frederick Knight in the eighties was the highpoint of her career, resulting in a flurry of exceptional songs on two small labels no longer in print.

 In fact, Brown's career was in many ways the reverse of the Southern Soul artist norm. In the eighties, while most R&B musicians were idle and disenfranchised, Keisa Brown was headlining concerts throughout the nation and Europe and scoring lucrative gigs as a back-up singer with superstars like Gladys Knight, Neil Diamond, Tina Turner, Patti LaBelle, Boyz II Men and Brandy. But by the nineties, when the majority of R&B artists were coming into full flower, Brown was performing less and no longer recording.
