Grammy-nominated country singer-songwriter Brent Cobb began his career over ten years ago; a journey that has seen him release three albums and an EP as well writing songs for the likes of Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan. His contemporary country sound has seen him tour incessantly while gathering interest from a diverse group of fans.
The Georgian musician released his debut album No Place Left to Leave in 2006, but took a few years out of the spotlight as he signed a songwriting contract with Carnival Music Publishing two years later. After mastering his song-writing techniques through working with other artists, he eventually released his self-titled follow-up EP in 2012 and his significantly successful album Shine On A Rainy Day in 2016.
Cobb says Shine On A Rainy Day was in the works for the best part of a decade as he strived to make it the best it could possibly be. The blood, sweat and tears that were poured into this 10-track compilation definitely paid off though as two years later it was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. His most recent album, Providence Canyon was released this May, and was championed by the likes of NPR and Rolling Stone, with the latter calling it an “earthy, idiosyncratic Nashville gem”. Keeping it in the family, all of his music has also been recorded with award-winning producer and cousin Dave Cobb, who has worked with some of country’s biggest names including Sturgill Simpson.
After spending countless years on the road touring his mellow Americana material, the 31-year-old has perfected his captivating live sets. His 2017 UK tour saw all dates sell out with him returning once again four months later for all the avid fans who missed out. He has announced details of his upcoming UK tour which includes dates in London and Manchester, which you can get tickets for here!brent cobb / introducing
