Discovered by the Griffin Brothers while touring in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1950, Brown recorded for Savoy Records in Atlanta under his own name -- with the Griffins' band in support -- before moving north to Washington, DC, to join the brothers in their touring and recording unit.
His first Dot Records recording with the Griffin Brothers was a cover version of Dave Bartholomew's "Tra-La-La," and it was a huge success, peaking at number seven in the R&B charts in August 1951. This was followed by an even bigger hit in December when Brown’s emotional "Weepin’ & Cryin" reached number three, and heralded a succession of such histrionic records. Leaving the Griffin Brothers in 1952, Brown returned to Savoy for one session billed as "Tommy 'Weepin' & Cryin' Brown." He then recorded in a variety of blues and R&B styles for various labels -- King Records (including a vocal version of "Honky Tonk" with Bill Doggett), United (with Walter Horton), Groove, Imperial Records, and ABC Records. He remained a night club singer and comedian in Atlanta throughout the '60s and '70s and was last reported to be working in a nursing home.
