Brown, Harold Eban (14 June 1972-Present)

Guitarist and singer-songwriter from Newark, New Jersey, who began playing and singing gospel when he was about seven years of age.  His early influences were George Benson, Bobby Caldwell, Larry Carlton, Grant Geissman, and Wes Montgomery.

He began writing songs when he was still in elementary school and went on to attend Weequahic High School in his home town of Newark.  In 1990, he graduated, and it did not take him long to find a job—with his favourite group, no less—Ray, Goodman & Brown.

He stayed with them for about two-years-and-a-half, and then briefly joined The Manhattans before becoming the lead singer for The Delfonics.  They were guest artists on Rob Base’s 1994 album, Break of Dawn, for which Eban produced two tracks, “Are You With Me” and “Chillin’”.  In 1995, they released Wil Hart and The Delfonics live in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Eban retired for a short time in the late ‘90s, but re-emerged in 2000 as the lead singer of The Stylistics.  He released his debut solo album, Master Suite, in 2002.  In 2004, he issued his sophomore effort, Restless Soul.  He followed this up with Exit 15 in 2006.  In 2007, he could be heard on The Stylistics In Concert!.  He also appears on their CD titled That Same Way.

In 2008, he performed a duet with Nas, “Can’t Stop Us Now”, which appears on Nas’s Untitled album.  Eban released Determinism in 2009, a mostly instrumental affair with some vocals by his sister Lisa.

In 2014  The Moments Greatest Hits – Volume 1 was released featuring the vocals of Harold “Eban” Brown and Billy Brown only.
