Steven Benjamin Mandel, who grew up in Bardonia, New York listening to Elvis Costello, is today’s Brown Brothers hero. But, he is much more than that. He is the architect behind our sound, having recorded and de facto produced our first two albums. As if that weren’t enough he is one of the best friends we are lucky enough to have had for the last 25-30 years.
As for his non-Brown Brothers work, we highly recommend Wise Up Ghost. Work with your idols? Absolutely. Tirelessly help your friends? Check. Do it all with the utmost generosity and humor? You bet. No one is without flaw but this guy is pretty close.
