About crescentstarstd

Franklin, IN

Internationally acclaimed roots rock musicia

Brent Bennett has been working professionally as a musician for over 25 years, playing in bands in Indiana and California. He has a huge archive of self-composed original music as well as a large repertoire of cover music he has accumulated over the years. He has many sides to his writing, often writing everything from rock to blues and country

Brent performed with bands in California, playing his original music and opening for such artists as John Waite and Echo & the Bunnymen, before returning to Indiana, where he began teaching guitar at GuitarWorks in Greenwood. He now works at Frank's Guitars in Franklin, where he gives instruction on various instruments such as guitar, drums, bass guitar and mandolin

Since returning to his home in Indiana, he has been involved with the Roadapple band and Gypsy Runner in the early to mid-80s, performing at the Vogue in Broad Ripple on a few occasions as well as at Deer Creek (now Verizon Wireless Music Center)

In 1992, he formed Stones Crossing with Rob York, where he played lead guitar and fronted the band with his own brand of left-handed guitar playing

His involvement with Ballast resulted in the band's self-titled album released in 2000, on which he wrote all the songs as well as providing lead vocals and guitar

During his down time with Stones Crossing, Brent has spent time with Sindacato, playing bass guitar and helping the band's leader, Frank Dean, with the writing chores. He now plays lead guitar in DropKick Ned

"Crossing the Country" is a country rock-flavored CD with Brent's longtime partner Rob York. It was recorded in the fall of 2005 at Crescent Star Recording Studios, Brent's own facility. Rob helped out with the writing duties and added his own brand of acoustic guitar to the work. Brent played all of the remaining tracks as well as handling the vocals. His sophomore solo effort, "Under My Own Power," was released in July 2006. "The Movers Are in Town," with The Movers, was released June 30, 2007. "It Must Be the Blues," a solo CD of blues covers, was released in May 2008. "A Ghost in Indiana" was released in September 2009, and "Brent-Strumentals: Relax," an all-instrumental CD, was released digitally that same year

Brent Bennett is a Raven West Guitars endorsed artist.
