Profile

Keith Henry Brown got his start drawing superheroes, but music has always been his true inspiration. He has worked as a designer for advertising agencies and high profile music-related projects, including creating posters for Jazz Appreciation Month for the Museum of American History and The Newport Jazz Festival, and creating jazz album covers for artists such as Christian McBride, Kevin Eubanks, Toshiko Akiyoshi and Wynton Marsalis. Keith’s first children’s book, Birth of The Cool: How Miles Davis Found His Sound, was published by Page Street Books in 2019 and received a Starred Review from Kirkus. Born and raised in Staten Island, Keith is father to two magnificent boys, Cole and Satchel (whom he affectionately calls his “two knuckleheads”) and lives and works in Brooklyn, surrounded by his favorite Spider-man, Batman and Black Panther action figures. Clients include Blue Note Records, Brooklyn Academy Of Music, City Journal Magazine, Rethinking Schools, and Farrar, Strauss & Giroux.
