Celebrating Kent Bilbrey (The Knoxville Sound) / Bio

We are beaming over what fans and critics are saying about "Sunshine:":
"This song brought a smile to my face. It reminded me of the old time music. No fancy sound effects or instruments. Just some old fashioned banjos. This song could find an audience. It has a nice vibe. There's nothing condescending here. It's just a track by some guys who want to have fun and entertain others. The band has talent. The harmony is wonderful. The banjo player knows how strum it and put on a show. The singer is talented and puts out some great lyrics. Overall, this was a great track. I really enjoyed the effort. The lyrics were catchy and a joy to listen to. The band really has something here. I can't wait to see what they do next!"

"A fun song to listen to. Really enjoyed it. Good playing of the guitars. Nice beat. I loved the words of the songs. Very unique. The music got me up and dancing. This song makes you feel good."

Little Things is getting some big reviews!
"The guitar strokes are very smooth with a large array of subtle instruments in the harmony. The voice is gentle but feels perfectly on key and the words are beautiful. This song sets you up feeling like you are on a beautiful shoreline watching the sunset, and he engages your mind in what the lyrics actually are to create a strong, and great song. Overall this is a pretty graceful song, that is much above average and is ambitious to pass up other songs in its Genre, which it deserves to do."

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.
