Keeping it simple and soulful, Brent & Co. combines rock, country, reggae and pop with improvisation to create memorable and refreshing music with heart and soul. Performing over 250 shows a year, this is a sound crafted on the road and in front of audiences nationwide. After touring on the 2012 release Not How We Dream EP, Brent & Co. are eager to unleash their new music on the world and continue bringing their live show to fans far and wide. The self-titled EP, Brent & Co. released in October 2015.

The strength of their live show, naturally, starts with the band members themselves. Theirs is a brotherhood forged on the road - in a station wagon - with over 250 acoustic & full band shows a year. Vocalist/guitarist Brent Peterson is joined on stage by drummer Dominic Fragman, saxophonist Derrick Michaels, and bassist Joe Martone. While the members of Brent & Co. come from varied musical backgrounds, their strong musicianship ties their sound together seamlessly.

Yet, in the modern era of “free” music, it’s not enough for independent artists to have a strong sound and compelling live show. Today’s musicians must be label, artist, and manager all while creating their own opportunities. In this day of overnight success, Brent & Co. have sought to build a name the traditional way: with night after night of great performances. First it was small bars and house parties - now it’s a clubs and colleges. Regardless of venue the band consistently reaches new audiences with unique performances of classic tunes and original songs that are thoughtful, catchy, and made for dancing.
