Down The Line



To Trent Brooks, 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.
