Acoustic guitar for your enjoyment
Brent has been an integral part of the music scene in Central Oregon since writing and performing his first original songs in the 80s. These days he runs a state of the art recording studio in Sisters where he has lived with his wife Jeannine for the last 10 years. As a recording engineer, Brent collaborates with some of the most talented musicians on the west coast. In addition, he continues to perform throughout the western region in a variety of groups. Brent Alan and his Funky Friends (Brent's party band) has been going strong for many years and is sought after to bring the good times wherever they play. Brent has a special touch for introspective songwriting and gifted hands on guitar, mandolin, dobro, bass, piano, and banjo.
Brent receives great joy from teaching songwriting, performance, recording engineering, and multiple instruments to local students through The Americana Project in Sisters since its inception over 15 years ago. The Americana Project is an educational program supported by the Sisters Folk Festival, an organization that reaches far beyond its fantastic annual music festival in early September. Through the Sisters Folk Festival, Brent is blessed by a vast community of professional musicians and the many opportunities that continue to emerge.
