Corey Brown

Corey BrownNo Treble founder Corey Brown credits his love for bass to his parents, who in the early 70′s bought one of those killer stereo systems with the big speakers (and some killer records to go with it), brought it home, and cranked the bass knob to 11.

Corey started playing upright at age 10, switched to sax at 11, and picked up both the upright and electric bass again at 15, never looking back.

After a brief stint at the University of North Texas in the late 80′s, Corey took a new career path in graphic design, which eventually brought him to the web in 1995, another “never-looked-back” moment.

Corey first combined his love for the bass and the web with the official Jaco Pastorius web site, which he ran from 2002 until 2007. He also worked on the Portrait of Jaco… the Early Years box set, designing and producing the packaging for the release in 2003.

Today, Corey is the COO and cofounder of Squidoo.com, with Seth Godin and the world’s greatest web team, and runs a web consulting business, Coreyweb, LLC.

Corey enjoys the peaceful life in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley with his two daughters lots of LPs, and half a dozen or so basses.
