Mark Brown (born 1962), better known by the stage name Brown Mark, also styled Brownmark and BrownMark, is an American musician and record producer.

Biography[edit]

Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Brown's early fame came when he was the bass guitarist of The Revolution,[1] musician Prince's original touring (and later also his recording) band. Noted for his unique, funk-based style of musicianship,[citation needed] he became a record producer and recording artist himself after parting company with Prince in 1986. He achieved minor successes in the R&B music field under both titles (most notably as founder and producer of R&B group Mazarati). After a lengthy absence from the music business he returned with a new project entitled Cryptic. After the release of the Cryptic CD entitled It's Been Awhile the group disbanded in 2002. Brown is currently working on a new project out of Tampa Florida with his newly formed group Syx Mil Breach. The CD will be released late 2010 and is to be titled Syx mil Breach.
