Meet Brent Cowles! Brent was born in Colorado Springs, and split his time growing up between Fort Collins and the Springs. He has been playing music since roughly the age of thirteen. Though he actively plays guitar, he considers his voice to be his main instrument. One listen to his songs, and you can really see why. Drawing from vocal influences all across the board, but mainly soul singers like Otis Redding, and Sam Cooke, Brent has cultivated a sound not often heard in this day and age.
Most of Brent's music career (so far) has been predominantly focused on his time in You, Me, and Apollo, which he started as a solo project when he was only seventeen years old! Ten years later (in 2014) after many successful years together, this project came to an end. I asked Brent what his favorite/most memorable show was. His response, without even having to think about it, was the You, Me, and Apollo album release of 'Sweet Honey' at the Bluebird in Denver.
Currently, Brent is having fun playing with his new band, which performs under his name. They have enjoyed recent successes such as Playing with Nathaniel Rateliff and signing to Denver based 'Greater Than Collective'. Be on the lookout for these guys, as they perform a show that should certainly not be missed. We hope you enjoy his songs as much as we do!
