Interview with Sissy Brown, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Oklahoma singer-songwriter and guitarist Sissy Brown has maintained a grueling touring schedule for many years. Originally from between Wichita Falls and Waurika, Oklahoma, the independent country singer grew up in a very rural area before relocating to urban centers in her adult life. She first settled in Spokane, Washington, where she played with rockabilly bands, then moved to Los Angeles, where she played at famed venues like the Viper Room. She also spent time living in Austin and Kansas City, but she chose to return home to Oklahoma in the late 2010s and refocus, beginning to spend less time on the road and more time alone, writing and slowing down. From a family of musicians, including a great-uncle who played with Jimmie Rodgers and Lefty Frizzell, Sissy Brown is a born artist who also collects and sells vintage western wear.
