BIOGRAPHY

Honest, soulful, and straight from the heart – Jeremy Kent brings every shade of emotion to life in his music. With rich signature tones and a masculine sensitivity, his songs paint vivid scenes of his life experience. Then, with a quick flicker of his boyish smile and a few low, sexy growls - he'll let you know, he's a man who can get down and honky-tonk with a contemporary country style that blends his cowboy roots and hillbilly heritage.

There's no denying Jeremy's passion for country - he's literally been a country music lover since birth. With no husband for support, his mom played a country music mix in the delivery room. When he was a year old, Jeremy's dad was back in the picture and making up for lost time. He was a talented guitar player who often played and sang for his young son. The pair formed a tight relationship. Born in Arizona and brought up between the wild deserts of the west and the rich cultural tapestry of Bluegrass Appalachia, Jeremy grew up appreciating his father's outlaw poets as well as his mother's Kentucky gospel harmonies. But his time with his "complete" family was cut tragically short. Music soon became the emotional outlet that helped Jeremy cope with his father's death and the loss of his sister, along with a number of other childhood challenges.

Jeremy Kent’s performing and songwriting led him first to Los Angeles and now Nashville. His music has quickly gained a strong following in the country community. His original music was showcased as part of the CMT Music Awards Preshow selection two years running – in 2008 and 2009! (Jeremy is the only unsigned artist to be included!) Two of Jeremy’s original tunes were featured in the GAC TV Special “Trace Adkins: X Days.” Jeremy was featured as a “Listen Up!” artist by Country Weekly Magazine. Jeremy won KZLA’s “Hometown Hero” honor in Los Angeles with his original song, So Far Away, receiving airplay along with a live interview on what was then, America’s most listened-to country station. Jeremy made the final cut in the national Country Thunder “Young Guns” online contest and he also enjoys regular airplay on his hometown radio station, KXCI-FM, in Tucson, Arizona.

Jeremy Kent knows how to connect! He released his first album - “Straight From The Heart” - in 2009 and he’s played venues across the country, emerging a crowd favorite from coast to coast. His diverse fan base is growing fast, proving the power of music that speaks to the heart and comes from the soul. There’s no question – Jeremy will remind you of everything you love about country music at its core!
