History

Well hello there folks, my name is Brent Berry and I play a lot of music. I live in Taos, New Mexico, near the Rio Grande. But Lawrence is my homeland, mi tierra. From Honest Abe to The Roots Crew to my newest combo The Mama's Boys. Enjoy, good for drinkin and dancin'.

In 1999 Brent struck up a relationship with Tom Johnson, composer/arranger for The Secondhands, and began work on his debut solo recording. In February of 2001, Brent released his debut solo full-length Inland on St Louis based Kick Save Records. Inland developed into a superb culmination of roots reggae, rocksteady, and folk music. In Taos, NM working on the Rio Grande the band Honest Abe was formed in 2004. Producer / engineer and bass player Jack "Joaquin" Wilson recorded the group in action for their first release "Monsoon" on 5th Son Records. Brent has performed with legendary acts such as the Slackers, Hepcat, The Skatalites, Wailing Souls, Mad Professor, Sizzla, Boom Shaka, Luciano, and Toots and The Maytals, King Django, Sister Carol and Ritchie Havens.
