James “The King” Brown (born 1968) is a Belfast-born Elvis Presley tribute act known for his covers of songs done in the style of Elvis and other songs by artists such as “Whole Lotta Rosie”, originally by AC/DC, and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, originally by Queen.
Initially a career Belfast postman, Brown became a singer after the positive reaction he received performing “Suspicious Minds” and “The Wonder of You” at a bar in Belfast, and attracting the attention of local singer-songwriter, record producer & former Energy Orchard frontman Bap Kennedy. Brown describes himself as a lifelong Elvis fan and claims that rather than impersonating Elvis, his singing voice naturally sounds-alike.
Brown’s first album, Gravelands was originally recorded for and released by the London-based Dressed To Kill label in 1997 before being licensed to EMI Electrola in 1998. The album contained his biggest hits “Come as You Are” by Nirvana and “Whole Lotta Rosie” by AC/DC. Gravelands would go on to sell half a million copies. In 2000, Brown released his second album Return to Splendor which contained the hit “Under The Bridge” originally by Red Hot Chili Peppers. Brown also toured with the Fun Lovin’ Criminals and Stereophonics.
Brown’s cover of Roger Miller’s 1964 single “King of the Road” was featured in a 2001 Audi commercial on German TV and subsequently released as a single. In 2005 Brown released his third studio album Any Way You Want Me via Browman Records – his first with original songs rather than cover versions.
Brown continues to perform live in Northern Ireland, Europe (mainly Germany), selling out shows and tribute nights to the King of Rock & Roll.
