Bio: This dude rocks to the max! Brent Cobb writes songs with catchy country-fried lyrics about girls, partyin and livin in the deep south. He is a true badass that knows about Bars, Guitars and Honkytonk Crack and aint afraid to talk about it. I mean listenin to this guy is like smokin a fat bowl of Honkytonk Crack! I got a chance to see him play a solo set openin for the Bama Gamblers the other night at Bourbon street bar and he brought the house down! Playin by himself with just a guitar in hand he captivated his audience with his high-powered beer fueled originals. He delivers hard drivin lyrics at the speed of a revved up locomotive, and writes Country and I mean Country music. Not Nashville pop that you hear so much on the radio and tv, but real Country music! Brent brings back the lyrical prowess of Steve Earle; the stage performance of Johnny Cash in his boot stompin pill poppin days; and the badassitude of Waylon Jennings, then mixes them together in a sound that is all his own.
His songs are well recorded and have spectacular musicians playing on them. Check out his myspace and like him on facebook while you give him a close listen-to. Pay close attention to this guy for he is bound to be a top Country songwriter. If you like clever lyrics and original music, singable choruses and a down home feel, then you will want to see him live. Although I havent seen him yet with a full band, the next time I see his name on the marquee I am definitely gonna drink a beer and get down to some Brent Muthafuckin Cobb!
