Trent Brooks' musical, style is a hybrid blend of powerful Southern Rock vocals, the heartbreak of Country Soul, with the "in your face" attitude of modern Country Rock. Trent fronts his own show, and besides being an in demand session player, also does guitar and vocal work for hire. No matter if its played on the harmonica, banjo, 6, or 12-string guitars, Trent's music is upfront, honest, and Americana to the core. Trent's original song "Bar Room Roses" is featured in the full length independent film "Reborn," and his original song B-R-O-K-E-N H-E-A-R-T is featured in the full length independent film, "Tomorrow will be..." Trent's new CD "Down the Line" is now available through iTunes, and Amazon, directly through this site, and at selected retail outlets.
To Trent, music is a mixture of life, and the events that it contains. "I think of my music is an element that allows people that have never met before, to have some common ground with each other," Trent smiles. "Feelings, events, and things that make a great song are common threads through all people, and that's what allows them to connect on an emotional level, with music as the catalyst."
"Influences, I have influences from every music lover I've ever met, musician, or not." "I grew up listening to the classic country artists of the 70's, like Johnny Cash, George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Buck Owens and the Buckaroos," Trent says. "My dad believed strongly that there was "no other kind of music" than Country/Western as it was coined back then." "That was the beginning of a seed being planted that one day would grow into a musical style that would become my own." "My dad's side of the family was and still is very musically talented, and he bought my first guitar for me from a coworker when I was 8."
"I discovered a band called Lynyrd Skynyrd after I heard a song at a local club." "I asked the DJ the name of the song, and he laughed at me." "Sweet Home Alabama" he said...I was fourteen years old and hooked." "I had been playing the guitar for about 7 years at this point, and I was excited to know that song was only three chords...three that I actually knew." "I learned to play the song and that opened all kinds of interesting doors." "Doors to other Southern Rock bands like The Marshall Tucker Band, Black Oak Arkansas, The Outlaws, Blackfoot and The Allman Brothers to name a few."
Step on the dirt pedal, and that is the musical style of Trent Brooks.
