BRENT FREEMAN BLAIR
Music with honest self-examination is a symbol of Brent Freeman Blair's self-creative power to hook you into every song. Uncomplicated and sincere...with a vocal style that will keep you wanting more. (CBC Radio)

Out of Sault Ste Marie Ontario Canada.
After playing the bar scenes since the age of 16 (yes I was under age)...I found myself spending more time learning other musicians songs than finding the time to write my own. Job, family and personal commitments ended all that....doesn't it for most. Anyway now I spend most of my free time in my home studio doing what I consider to be the most inspiring aspect of what I have been doing in music thus far....writing and creating my own music.
I presently have 20 some songs in various stages of construction and perhaps a bible worth of lyrics and melodies just waiting to be born into something I hope you enjoy.
The songs I have on this page have all been recorded using a Delta Omni i/o Studio through a Delta 66 sound card on to Cakewalk Sonar (latest edition)running on Windows XP. Mastered with Ozone 3 Isotope. Waves Platinum Bundle.
All guitars,vocals, bass guitar and drums are performed by myself one track at a time. I use Beta Monkey drums at www.betamonkeymusic.com (awesome) for all drum parts.
Please do not hesitate to add a comment to my message board. I will return the favour.
All the best
Brent Freeman Blair

Why this name?
Ask my parents.
Do you play live?
For many years, however I am strictly studio based for the meantime.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I love this medium. It opens you up to many other musicians and resources that were unheard of only a few years ago.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
No. My goal is to have a publishing company source my songs out to other bands that are on major labels. (A small town boy can still dream)
