b. Frank Brown, 20 April 1922, River, Kentucky, USA. Brown began his long and distinguished career on WCMI Ashland, Kentucky in 1939. Over the years he has played with many of the top names including Bradley Kincaid and Bill Monroe and appeared at country music's most important venues. He acquired the nickname of ‘Hylo’ from his ability to sing in both tenor or bass voices and is also a fine guitarist. The full credit that he deserves has avoided him perhaps because he was born a few years too early. He possessed the ability to sing both bluegrass and ordinary country material equally well but the general opinion in his day was that one should either sing one or the other. Consequently he was never afforded the opportunity to demonstrate his full potential. It was not until years later that Ricky Skaggs convinced both record companies and the public that it was possible to sing both genres equally well. Between 1954 and 1960, Brown recorded for Capitol being especially remembered for the versions of his self-penned Lost To A Stranger and his version of the Vagabonds', When It's Lamp Lighting Time In The Valley. In the early '60s, he recorded several albums for Starday and in the late '60s, a whole series for Rural Rhythm. Other albums have appeared and some 1960 Capitol recordings, with an overdub by the Jordanaires, were released for the first time by Bear Family in 1992.
