Terry Brown is a British record producer involved in a variety of work, but most noted for his involvement with the Canadian rock band Rush and the English pop rock band Cutting Crew.


Terry Brown is referred to fondly by the band Rush as "Broon" in the liner notes for their albums.[1] This nickname appears in the title of the instrumental piece "Broon's Bane" from their live album Exit...Stage Left. On this same record, Geddy Lee jokingly introduces the song "Jacob's Ladder" as having been written by "T. C. Broonsie", another reference to Brown and a pun on the name of Big Bill Broonzy. He also appears as the (uncredited) voice of the hypnotist on the Dream Theater album Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory.

Brown has also engineered, produced or mixed many other artists, including Jimi Hendrix, Sonny and Cher, Kenny Rogers, Traffic, Joe Cocker, The Who, The Dave Clark Five, Rush, Procol Harum, The Troggs, The Moody Blues, The Small Faces, Manfred Mann, Marianne Faithfull, Spencer Davis Group, Donovan, Barbra Streisand, Blue Rodeo, Moist, Max Webster, Klaatu, Thundermug, Fates Warning, Lizzy Borden, Voivod, Ray Stevens, the Bonzo Dog Band, Motherlode, Dr. Music, April Wine, The Stampeders, Michel Pagliaro, Moe Koffman, Alannah Myles, B.B. Gabor, Cirque du Soleil, Dream Theater, Lawrence Gowan, Rough Trade, The Killjoys, FM, Toronto, Ian Thomas, The Mummble Ducks, and Christmas.[2]

Brown is currently working with emerging Ottawa roots-rockers Ken Workman & The Union.[3]
