* Brent Charles’ single “Sunshine” [English version] and “Sunshine (Siempre Estás)” [Spanish version] is now available on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital media outlets.
Traveling extensively, Brent developed a keen interest in various forms of art early in life. Since his father wanted him to have a secure future with a “real job”, Brent initially studied computer technology and engineering, working with his father at IBM for a while before eventually embarking on a U.S. & South Pacific tour. Receiving a full scholarship to the University of Miami Frost School of Music furthered his musical growth and desire. Although Brent is also a professional S.A.G. eligible actor, former model, and a professional visual artist (abstract & surrealism; mediums - acrylics, oils, and watercolor), his primary focus is unquestionably his first love, music.
Throughout his tranquil, jovial, or even energetic, high-voltage performances, he personalizes each song drawing from his own life experiences and multi-cultural background while staying true to each individual art form. 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 develop the vocal skills to authentically perform Jazz (Brazilian & American Standards & Swing), Classical, Rock, Hip-Hop, R&B, Merengue, Salsa, Top 40, Calypso, Reggae, Country, Blues, Progressive, House, and other International genres. Implementing the same Bel Canto method that his grandmother Cynthia taught him, Gina Maretta has also strongly influenced his vocal development. In turn, Brent loves sharing these voice enhancing and preserving techniques with his private vocal students, as well as his special needs music therapy class.
