It is a rare and difficult feat for anyone to make his dream a reality, but BRIAN KENT is living proof that talent, ambition and belief will take you to amazing places. With years in entertainment, touring as part of a company or backing up vocalists like Kristine W., BRIAN KENT decided to focus on his love of songwriting and performing and has brought his own solo talent to life in his full length debut “Breathe Life.” This collection of songs is a high-energy, emotional voyage in music expressed in radio-ready and club-friendly tracks. These are songs that literally pulsate with Brian Kent's signature charisma, passion and emotionality. Released in 2008, the content of “Breathe Life” continues to grab listeners instantly by speaking to the truth of life's relationships and narrates the journey of awareness, discovery and recovery of one’s authentic self. With the newest single “Whatcha’ Doin To Me” already hitting the Billboard Club Charts and his second making it to #1 on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Hot 20 Charts, Recording Artist BRIAN KENT is making his mark on the music industry, proving that dancing is the very best medicine for all of life’s challenges. In a relatively short period of time, Brian has developed a major fan base independently. Distributed by Centaur Entertainment to retail nationwide and digitally worldwide, the result is simply infectious.
Brian has succeeded in creating a major buzz across the nation this past couple of years to build up to the present. His videos for “Breathe Life” directed by Loic Maes (Infernal) and “I'm Not Crazy”, directed by Jorg Fockele (Queer Eye For The Straight Guy) spread quickly to dance clubs, video bars and lounges across the country through Promo Only, Rock America and Screenplay by Import Sound & Vision. These videos spent weeks on the Top 10 countdown show The Click List on LOGO causing Brian to be voted one of the Top Artists of The Year on their end of the year special. The videos were also seen on HBO Zone, VH1.com and here! TV Networks. Brian’s music was also licensed to Tori Spelling’s film Kiss the Bride , Project Runway – Season 5’s finale and his track “Drive” hit #1 on Sirius Radio’s Hot 20 Charts. This allowed Brian to make a name for himself nationally and tour the country, hitting many Pride Festivals and opening for such artists as Crystal Waters, Kristine W. and Martha Wash.
Brian released his own dance version of Journey's Don't Stop Believin' in 2005 which created the word of mouth that marked his debut single. With this release, Brian scored the praise of such spinners as Twisted Dee, Julian Marsh, Randy Bettis, Warren Gluck and Brett Henrichsen (Masterbeat Records).
Brian co-wrote and collaborated with amazing talent to bring “Breathe Life” to life. The producers on the album include Jack D. Elliot (Reina, Kristine W) and Chico from Rizz-One Entertainment (Junior Vasquez, Katherine McPhee). Zhana Saunders, who has performed with such great artists as Taylor Dayne and Dee-Lite, co-wrote and performed on many of the tracks with Brian. The amazing Janice Robinson, known for her #1 hit Dreamer, also lends her writing skills to one of the tracks on the record (I Pray). The single and title track Breathe Life was written and produced by Jack D. Elliot for JDE Music who has also worked with such great artists as Nick Lachey, NSync and Britney Spears and Diane Warren.
