Mini Bio (1)

Honest, soulful, and straight from the heart - Jeremy Kent brings every shade of emotion to life in his music. With rich signature tones and a masculine sensitivity, his songs paint vivid scenes of his life experience in a contemporary country style that blends his cowboy roots and hillbilly heritage.

Honest pain and a love for the richness of life - you can hear every shade of emotion come to life in Jeremy Kent. His rich, deep tones blend with a vocal vulnerability to paint vivid scenes of his life experience. Then, with a quick flicker of his boyish smile and a few low, sexy growls, he'll let you know, he's a man who can get down and honky-tonk with the best of them.

There's no denying Jeremy Kent's passion for country. He's literally been a country music lover since birth. With no husband for support, his mom played Dolly Parton music in the delivery room. Afterward, mom and her newborn settled in with Jeremy's grandparents for some recovery time, which began a special bond between the four.

When he was a year old, Jeremy's dad was back in the picture, making up for lost time. He was a talented guitar player who often played and sang for his young son. His father, half-sister Melody, and Jeremy formed a tight relationship by the time Jeremy was three, but their time together was cut short. His sister, 5-year-old Melody, was kidnapped by her mother from her preschool classroom. Then, just a few months later on July 4th, 1980, Jeremy's father, Kent, was killed in a private plane crash during take-off in Tombstone, Arizona. That's when Jeremy's "Poppaw" stepped in stronger than ever as a father figure.

Growing up with his Poppaw in Arizona, Jeremy learned to love Roy Rogers movies and the Grand Ole Opry. His family jokes he's a "Cow-Billy"... from a Cowboy dad and a Hillbilly mom. His mother and grandparents are from the mountains of eastern Kentucky, so young Jeremy grew up listening to and loving country radio and Bluegrass gospel, and you can hear those early childhood influences alive and well in his music today.

Jeremy's musical style bridges the gap between traditional and modern country, appealing to anyone who has ever lived, loved, lost, and started all over again. Jeremy has an honest compassion for people that's reflected in every song he writes and sings. The rich depth of his voice wraps around you like the warmth of your favorite blanket with stories of faith, strength, and vulnerability. His playful growls and throaty country slides remind you of the lightness of life. Every note is a new and resonating experience on his vocal adventure.

Jeremy Kent's stand-out vocal style has grabbed radio's attention from LA to Nashville. He received airplay on what was then the most listened-to country station in America and he was the only unsigned artist to be included in the CMT Music Awards pre-show in 2008.

If you're looking to forget your troubles, or connect with someone who knows your pain, Jeremy Kent is there for you. He's lived it. He's loved it. And you'll know it in every song!
