John David Kent

The decision John David Kent made to take his music into the direction more rooted in country was an organic one. As a young child, Kent’s parents introduced him to a diverse array of music. He started playing drums at the age of 4 and he vividly remembers being drawn to the earthy stylings of musicians like John Denver, Willie Nelson and the Eagles. John David Kent himself has a notable and vast musical history. Signed to Mercury Records by age sixteen, Kent began touring with “Radish,” the rock band he formed with childhood friend and now well-known artist, Ben Kweller. Soon after came recording and touring with the Lemonheads, a national tour with My Morning Jacket and various other acts, as well as appearances on Letterman and Conan.  With rich three-part harmonies and fresh twists on sounds that channel a mix of Waylon Jennings and Creedance Clearwater Revival, John David Kent’s songs instantly feel both unique and familiar.
