In the first ranking event of the 2014/2015 season, Brown was drawn against Chinese snooker star Ding Junhui in the Wuxi Classic. He beat Ding 5–0 in emphatic fashion, qualifying for a second ranking tournament. Brown continued his good form in China, beating Oliver Lines 5–1 in the last 64 stage, before losing to Martin Gould 5–1. Brown entered in the second ranking event of the season, the Australian Goldfields Open. He had to play four qualifying rounds to get to the venue stage.

At the Welsh Open he beat Mike Dunn 4–3 and home favourite Ryan Day 4–1 to reach the last 32 of a ranking event for the second time this season. Brown suffered a 4–0 defeat against Luca Brecel and his season would come to an end with a heavy 10–1 loss to Liam Highfield in the first round of World Championship qualifying. He entered Q School, but could only win a total of two matches to fall short of earning a place on the tour.
