Brent Charles

Brent Charles: Live at the Melton Mustafa Jazz Festival (Blue Dolphin Arts & Enterprises)

Originally from Long Island, NY with Trinidadian roots, Brent Charles sprouts from a large musical family. Demonstrating deep warm tones to a vibrant whistle register with a vocal range of more than four octaves, Brent sings several languages and genres. In addition to the wonderful tutelage and influence of his mother, Cynthia Young Sheppard, and his uncle, Arthur Young of the Lafayette Afro Rock Band and ICE, two of his greatest musical influences are his two grandmothers, Odell Sheppard and Cynthia Young. Collectively their guidance and musical instruction encouraged him to interpret music from a deeply personal space…….. Love!
