Cobb was born in Americus, Georgia, about an hour east of Columbus, in the rural south-central part of the state. In addition to his work as an artist, Cobb is widely respected as a songwriter garnering cuts by Lee Ann Womack, Luke Bryan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert and more.
Last year, Cobb performed “Ain’t A Road Too Long” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, plus “High In The Country” as a web exclusive – both from his new record. The album and tour follow a breakthrough few years for Cobb, who was nominated for Best Americana Album at the 60th GRAMMY Awards for his major label debut, Shine On Rainy Day. Since the album’s release, Cobb was also nominated for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2017 Americana Honors & Awards and made his television debut on CONAN.
Critical praise for Providence Canyon…
“An evocative new album from one of Nashville’s maverick new singer-songwriters…”
“…he epitomizes all that’s enticing about Southern rootsy singer-songwriters securing a vibe that’s organic, authentic and above all honest.”—American Songwriter
“The sweet spot between big-city country and small-town Americana…with a swampy, twangy sound that eagerly dips into funk and soul while still retaining a deeply loose, deeply southern quality.”—The FADER
“The record has the goods from the excellent opening title track on down. Cobb’s got the perfect voice to suit his songs which are topped off with just enough country-rock and a dose of pedal steel to form one of the best country albums of the year.”—JamBase
“Nobody is more fluent in country-funk than Brent Cobb”
“Who wouldn’t want to be as comfortable in their skin as Cobb is on Providence Canyon?”
“…the singer has developed a keen observational eye over the years, and a lazy, loping drawl that’s reminiscent of that style’s Grand Master, the late Roger Miller.”—Paste
“Like your favorite novel, Providence Canyon grows more familiar and compelling each time you revisit it…a masterful southern opus…with Providence Canyon, Brent Cobb has created a place you’ll want to revisit again and again.”—Wide Open Country
