A glimpse of gospel, jazz, and soul from the great legends is what inspires the sound of pianist Theron Brown’s music. The artist that first stimulated Theron’s interest in jazz music was pianist, Thelonious Monk. Although, Monk’s genius was hard for him to digest at first listen, he found something very intriguing about his sparse touch and exotic harmonies. As an artist, the musicians that Theron has performed with have been many and varied, and across all genres, and his worldwide performances, particularly those with trios, quartets and big bands, brought him recognition from numerous places all around the world.Theron came across an amazing opportunity, when he was cast as young Herbie Hancock in the 2016 film, "Miles Ahead," directed by and starring Don Cheadle. This movie is an intimate look into the life of jazz artist Miles Davis. Theron currently resides in Akron, Ohio, where he is a professor of jazz piano at Kent State University, and he is immensely involved in promoting jazz music and the arts.
