Biography

Kent came to Austin, Texas to visit his father and grandmother in the spring of 1997, during Austin’s SXSW Music Conference. The following year, he attended SXSW, and that is when he decided to lay his entire music career on a roll of the dice, and he moved to Austin in the fall of 1999. His love for the water has built him a respectable following among the clubs that grace the shores of Austin’s lakes and gained him popularity in many of the better-known Austin venues. With his family roots in Austin going back to the 1800’s, Kent’s music is a true blend of Texas Country and Americana. He has often been compared to the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker and Jimmy Buffett. It is not unusual at one of Kent’s performances to see a crowd dressed in Hawaiian shirts, wearing docksiders, and dancing next to a bunch of cowboys and cowgirls dressed in western hats and cowboy boots. These two unlikely lifestyles are blended together into a single fan base much in the way the hippies and Country-Western enthusiasts bonded in Austin a generation ago.
