Horace Brown was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. He dreamed of one day being a professional basketball player. However, a knee injury ruined these plans.
Brown played a variety of instruments in his school’s marching band and managed to score a break when DeVante Swing of Jodeci heard one of Brown’s demos. Brown earned spots doing backup for Christopher Williams and did some writing. He finally scored a break when he managed to get a contract with Uptown after Andre Harrell saw him in a recording session.
In 1994, while on Uptown Records, Brown spurred controversy his single “Taste Your Love” was released. Despite the press around the single, it failed to perform well on the charts and caused Brown’s album to be put on the shelves for the remainder of the time he was at Uptown. When Andre Harrell of Uptown moved to Motown, he brought Brown with him. Motown promoted the album by releasing two more singles and in 1996, released his self-titled debut album.
