Werner ‘‘Ravin Guitar’’ Brent (29), grew up with music from Johnny Guitar Watson, Donald Fagen/Steely Dan, John Coltrane,Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, Geogie Fame, Maceo Parker, Albert King, Santana, Otis Redding and many other musicians, and has been playing music since the age of four, playing the drums. After a while, the blues really got to him and he started to play the piano and the guitar. Werner’s music is very much influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Guitar Watson, J.J. Cale, Albert king, Dexter Gordon, Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. Michael Jackson, Horace Silver, Thelonious Monk, St. Germain and Bonobo. Always thinking about music. Never goes anywhere without his guitar. All about live performing and expressing the soul.
He recently teamed up with Pjotr van Rijn (drums) and Raymond van Wersch (bass). As we speak, they are recording their first album. Curious what he sounds like? These pages are all about Werner’s music.
