Spotlight: Brent Bly


Year started performing: I started in the Toledo music scene in 1994 as a drummer in a band called My Time On Venus. I have played in various bands and then decided I was going to focus on becoming a "complete" songwriter, kind of like Prince and Lenny Kravitz. I am a drummer by trade, but I also sing, play guitar and bass, produce, and mix.

Style of music: Melodic hard rock.

Sounds a little like: Motorhead, Deep Purple, The Clash, Black Sabbath, Corrosion of Conformity, Alice in Chains, and Pink Floyd.

Influences: Those are pretty much my influences as well, along with the Beatles, Soundgarden, Rage Against the Machine, The Police, and countless other bands.

Releases: My new single is "The Closer You Live to the Truth" available on iTunes, CDBABY, and I have released the following CDs: "reEVOLUTION"(2013); Brent Bly's Dark Ambition "Necessary Evil" (2013); Brent Bly's Dark Ambition "Volume III Where the Truth Lies" (2012), and Brent Bly's Dark Ambition "VENOM" (2011).
