"A great young guitar player has arrived. He can play fast but has enough soul to play "Key to the Highway" and sound like he means it." -Bruce McCabe (writer of Jonny Lang's hit "Lie to Me")
"I hear strong, soulful vocals-much cooler than the radio is lately!" - Kevin Bowe, Grammy-winning songwriter
Following in the footsteps of some great blues pioneers before him, young guitar-slinger Trent Romens is also stepping off their beaten path to blaze his own trail. With an electrifying stage presence and a deeply personal guitar-playing style, the breakout newcomer is winning over an impressive string of audiences.
While jamming on a guitar in his living room as an 11-year old, Trent’s passion for the blues hit when his father noticed him playing a unique progression. “You know what you’re playing? That’s the blues!” his dad said. Inspired by that moment, Trent absorbed himself in the blues and the music the genre has inspired. Trent's greatest influences are the artists that have proven their music to be timeless, and whose songs hold great weight: the lyrics of Bob Marley and Dylan, the improvisational spirit of the Grateful Dead, and the scorching guitar grooves of the The Allman Brothers Band. “I respect the music that has come before me,” says Trent. “It’s through these influences that I’ve learned: what goes in comes out. I pour myself into my music. It’s who I am.”
