Güero Brown is an independent band based in Seattle, Washington. The band’s founder, Güero Brown, is a Michigan native and graduate of Western Michigan University, where he studied foreign languages and audio engineering. Travel and literature have played a significant role in Güero’s artistic development and musical taste. After a period of years based in West Michigan, Güero took time away from music in 2014 to live in Latin America and find new inspirations. In early 2017, Güero returned to the studio to record new music that was eventually released as a self-titled album in late 2018. Many of the songs on Güero Brown were written in the southern hemisphere and feature contributions from various talented collaborators in different parts of the United States.
