Dillon Brown

lead guitarist/songwriter/vocals

Dillon Brown is an Inland Empire / Los Angeles area lead guitarist.  Over the last 11 years, his private guitar training focused on rock, blues, classical and some jazz in order to make Dillon a well rounded guitarist. However, his true love is rock and blues.


Currently focused on creating and recording his original music, and a career as a professional touring musician, he is also available for session work. Besides electric guitar, Dillon plays some bass guitar and excels as a background singer.

Through the Kids Rock Free non-profit music school, he was fortunate to play with and open for major acts like The Steve Miller Band and Paul Rodgers. He spent October 2009 - September 2011 touring with The Steve Miller Band around the country in over 25 cities playing Steve's greatest hits onstage with the band, including Wintertime, Rock N Me & Jungle Love, The Joker, Swingtown, Space Cowboy, and Fly Like an Eagle. The goal was to help put similar music centers all over the country, so that more kids have these kinds of opportunities.


He is also proud to be a member of Robert M. Knight's Brotherhood of the Guitar.
