About Brent Holmes- The Recording Artist
Brent is one of the best selling children’s recording artists in the United States. Parent’s Choice described his music as “Some of the prettiest and some of the silliest children’s songs ever recorded”. His fun and educational CDs and DVDs are sold in gift shops all over the United States, Canada and parts of the Caribbean. Over the last twelve years he has released ten CDs and four DVDs on his Fun Tunes for Kids record label. Each of his award winning line of children's CD's was produced by Emmy nominee Dave Hoffner. They all feature at least twelve highly original songs and most of the CDs have an educational spoken track at the end. His gentle voice and highly creative songs have helped his recordings become “The Children’s Music that Adults Adore” because both children and adults love his music.
It all began one night, several years ago, when Brent dreamed that there was a cow in his grandmother’s kitchen. As a result of that dream he wrote his first children’s song called “The Cows In The Kitchen At Grandma’s House”. Soon thereafter he decided to record an entire CD about cows. “Cow Tunes For Kids” was his first release in 1996 and his first customer was the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream factory in Vermont. Many other gift shops soon began carrying the Cow Tunes. The CD was so well received that he followed it with ‘Moose Tunes For Kids” and the Fun Tunes For Kids label was born. Over the past twelve years Fun Tunes for Kids has become the foremost children’s label in the U.S. gift market.
Brent resides in Nashville, Tennessee where he writes, records and runs his record label. A portion of the sales from Fun Tunes for Kids goes to Beyond Borders, a non profit charity that helps teach literacy to underprivileged children in Haiti.
