Brent’s musical skills have taken him throughout the United States, Europe, and Central America. His eclectic style and inclusive stage presence have garnered him mass appeal wherever he’s made an appearance.
Brent was born in Tempe, Arizona and was raised in Kentucky. He began playing the piano at age 9 and proficiently writing songs at age 13.

It was at school where Brent honed his songwriting and performance skills while learning the “art” of integrated marketing.
Fans of Brent Reed know that his passions lie beyond the superficial elements of song structure and prose. “I want people to connect to something beyond themselves. To step out of mundane moments and feel a ‘Creative Presence’ outside of the tangible. It’s something listeners can actually choose to participate in as well, and that’s very exciting to me!”
Currently Brent resides in beautiful Northern Kentucky where he’s connected to a local body of creatives, entrepreneurs, and friends. Brent’s most recent full-length album “All That We’re Made Of” was released in April of 2010.
