In 2005, Catahoula Brown released his debut CD, Cur Dog Blues, recorded at Redfish Audio in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. It was a collection of gritty songs about trains, frustration and love. 2007, brought the release of the much anticipated follow up CD, Let That Boy Boogie, which was nominated by both Music Nova Scotia... and the East Coast Music Association, for Best Blues Recording. Along the way, Brown has played such prestigious events as the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival and The Dutch Mason Blues Festival. He has shared the stage with such respected artists as, Charlie A'Court, Matt Andersen, John Campbelljohn and Morgan Davis, to name a few.

With his third full-length recording, Lonely Live Here, Catahoula Brown has established himself amongst the players who cannot only cook a great lick but can also serve up meaty tunes that have simmered to perfection. Drawing from the Country and Western traditions known in his childhood and merging them with emotions bred in experience, this album of roots-blues tunes is the finest and most honest work of his career.

Catahoula Brown will be releasing 'Lonely Live Here' at The Pearl Theater in Lunenburg Nova Scotia on Saturday May 7th, in association with the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society. Show guests will feature many of the fine musicians who contributed to the album including Anna Ludlow, Irish Mythen, Jordi Comstock, Heather Ann Cameron, Mason MacLeod, Robert Clark and others.
