As one of the most prominent up and coming artists from Chicago, Brent Brown pours everything into his music. It is his passion in life and a way for him to spread positivity into the world around him. Brent’s music is influenced by some of his favorite artists including the Beatles, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Jack Johnson and Otis Redding. He is a versatile musician who sings, plays guitar, bass, drums and dabbles on the keys. Originally from Naperville, he is an accomplished producer with seven self-produced albums to his name.
With minimal gear and a couple years of experience playing and singing, Brent recorded several early releases including Mind Over Melody which became a sensation on YouTube as it was also featured by internet blogger and make-up guru Megan Parken
After taking up a six month cruise ship tour with Carnival, Brent’s voice took a beating and left him virtually voiceless for a little over two months. During this reflective time, he wrote most of Silent Mind’s University. With his voice back to health, Brent sprung back with a vengeance on his fifth release, Soul Candy. This 18 track album offered a run of great songs like “Abbey”, “Ashes” and “Madness.” “In My Head” quickly grew into a fan favorite and one of Brent’s best live jams.
Breaking free and feeling a new sense of liberation, Brent wrote “I Got Soul” while moving out of his parents’ house. With the support of his fans, friends and family, Brent raised $2,000 on Kickstarter to fund the 2014 album release Vision featuring the critically acclaimed song “I Got Soul”.
And now the culmination of all that aquired has lead to his first full pro studio album ‘For Play’ that released April 8th, 2016. For Play was producered by Chris Steinmetz at Stonecutter Studio Chicago along with co-producer Brandon Batchelar. It’s rumored his next album is already written…
Brent Brown’s energy, passion and commitment to his music remains limitless. His presence on all major social media and strong connection with his fans is allowing him to enjoy growing support from fans around the world.
