    A singer/songwriter whose eclectic body of work has embraced both
    retro-styled honky tonk and tough, bluesy lyrical introspections, Jann
    Browne is an artist with the talent to craft a mainstream success --
    and the guts and integrity to walk away from Nashville when she
    grew uncomfortable with the music industry.

    Jann Browne was raised in Indiana and developed a taste for
    country music from her grandparents, who were members of
    a square dancing troupe that often performed at bluegrass
    festivals. However, Browne's own musical impulses leaned more
    toward rock & roll and blues, and as a teenager she began
    performing with local rock bands. In the late '70s, Browne pulled
    up stakes and moved to California, where she began writing and
    performing new songs with a stronger country influence. After a
    brief stint as a vocalist with Asleep at the Wheel, Browne moved
    to Nashville, and her material caught the ear of an A&R executive
    at Curb Records; in 1990, Browne was signed to the label and
    she released her debut album, Tell Me Why, that same year.
    Tell Me Why was a surprise success, spawning two hit singles,
    "Tell Me Why" and "You Ain't Down Home," and earned Browne
    a nomination as Female Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of
    Country Music. However, Browne -- a maverick who felt at home
    with such off-mainstream country & western artists as Emmylou
    Harris and Iris DeMent, both of whom have recorded with her --
    very soon discovered she had little taste for the politics of the
    major-label music industry. After her second album, 1991's Only
    When I Laugh, failed to sell as well as her debut, she opted out
    of her contract with Curb and moved back to California. Browne
    still had a substantial audience in Australia and Europe, and in
    1995, she recorded her third album, Count Me In, for Red Moon
    Records, an independent label in Europe (it later received an
    American release from the independent Cross Three label). The
    album displayed a rawer sound that had more to do with blues
    and rock than mainstream country, and while it didn't find a
    large audience in the United States, it won a number of
    enthusiastic reviews and re-established Browne as a
    singer/songwriter with a sharp and distinctive vision. For
    her fourth album, 2001's Missed Me by a Mile, Browne
    continued to re-assert her independence by co-producing
    the album herself, and releasing it in America on her own
    label, Plan B Records. ~ Mark Deming, All Music Guide
