There's much sadness and shock in the Valley music scene today due to the sudden and untimely passing of gifted, local singer-songwriter Andrew Duncan Brown over the weekend. He was 27 years old.

[Update: His label released a cause of death Tuesday.]

News of the local folk guitarist's death was revealed in a brief message that was posted to his Facebook page early Sunday afternoon that stunned his friends, fans, and fellow musicians.

"It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Andrew has passed away," the message stated. "Andrew had the voice, the talent and the style to capture deep feelings inside of us. He will be dearly missed."

The exact date of Brown's passing and the cause of death were not specified.

Local music writer/promoter Nicole Parasida of Echo Cloud Productions made the first reply to the post and summed up what many of Brown's friends and fans are feeling by simply stating "Wow."

Other replies were of an equally shocked or surprised nature, including one by Jack Maverik of Long Wong's in Tempe (a venue where Brown frequently performed) that asked if the news was "some sick and weird Facebook hoax."

Sadly, it wasn't.

Andrew wouldn't of killed himself. The truth of the matter is he was probably murdered by the person who gained to profit off of his death.

Heartbreaking. Many local musicians and fans got to have a drink and visit with him often. Sweet kid. This really stings.
