Biography

Brent Kirby has been called by many of his peers one of Cleveland’s hardest working musicians, and his actions prove that. In 2013, Brent was voted “Best Singer” and also “Best Male Vocal” by the Cleveland Scene, and in 2012, he was voted “Best Musician”. When not playing solo or with his band, Brent writes the tunes and fronts the Jack Fords (2007, 2009 Best Rock Band, Cleveland Scene), leads the monthly revival of Gram Parsons with his band The New Soft Shoe, and plays drums for the talented Cleveland holiday band, the Ohio City Singers. His 10 x 3 Songwriter showcase weekly series at Brothers Lounge has created an encouraging, vibrant original music scene. A child of educators, Brent has been in the classroom writing original songs with students for 18 years. In addition, he writes songs with veterans, elderly, and business teams.
