Maxine Brown

maxinebrownDubbed “the girl who invented soul” this South Carolina-born singer with the heart-stopping voice scored from the off with her 1960’s self-penned debut All In My Mind.

But it was at New York’s Wand label between 1963 and 1967 that she really hit her stride, delivering tales of broken hearts and high drama with an unashamedly impassioned vocal display.

A caramelised rendition of Goffin and King’s Oh No Not My Baby, the pain-wracked Ask Me, the searing One In A Million, each spotlighted her exceptional skill for picking at the inner workings of those who had loved, lost and sobbed.
