Kent Worked his first professional union gig at the tender age of 12. Since the mid-70's Kent has been involved with some aspect of the Entertainment Business! He plays "things with strings", sings, composes, produces, records, hangs lights, sets sets, makes props, oh and he runs sound too.
Kent cannot be defined by any single style other than "That Knoxville Sound." Obviously influenced by traditional and regional music, Kent plays loves all schools of the blues, dixieland, jazz and of course ROCK AND ROLL!!!!
Kent is slowly closing out his secular career, seeking to serve The Lord, through a growing Music Ministry.
