What is Güero Brown?
As the name suggests, there is a mixture of colors at play. Founding songwriter Jason Norman has a diverse background that includes time living in several Spanish-speaking countries, including Mexico, where “güero” is a common term for persons of fairer skin, in other words “white.”
By extension, Güero Brown strives to create music that blends elements from various sources. For example, the song “Left Turns” draws inspiration from On the Road by Jack Kerouac, while a lyric in “On the Road” depicts well-known SNL character Bill Brasky. In essence, Güero Brown considers the combination of many musical and cultural elements as a sign of strength, something positive. By contrast, it rejects racism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, and other forms of prejudice. Güero Brown celebrates diversity, culture and positivity, and it wishes to project in its music.
