Morris's mother, Nancy Trent, was a pianist who noticed his continued interest in music and bought his first guitar at the age of twelve. As he grew older, Morris continued playing guitar with his school mates and friends, which later improved his skills as a musician.
At the age of fourteen, he started playing with local bands in the New Haven area; establishing his musically, playing Jazz, Blues (R&B) and Funk. At the age of seventeen, one of his older musician friends, Gregory Nixon introduced him to two great musicians known as the Buster Brothers; Eddie and Bobby Buster. This was a life changing moment for Morris Trent.

At that time, organist and pianist Eddie and Bobby Buster just returned home to the Bridgeport/New Haven area after years of performing in Chicago with jazz legends Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons.
