Brooks began singing as an early age, and along with his brother and sister always sang in church choirs and chorus. Brooks began taking piano lessons at age 7, and picked up his first guitar at age 12. After several years of not singing much, Brooks began experimental with wordless music recording in his basement. Over time Brooks began to realize he still loved singing and began implementing vocals into his recordings of covers as well.
By the time he got to college he began leading worship at a local church, and really began writting his own music. Along with that he began to record his songs and would post them for his friends to hear. After his first show in 2012 at Moe Joe’s Coffee Company in Clemson, SC, he began to take his music more seriously. After lots of positive feedback and more shows, Brooks set out to record his first serious release, the “Stone Pile EP”, which was released on September 16th, 2014. Brooks’ voice has been compared to artists like Amos Lee, Matt Nathanson, Wesley Schultz (The Lumineers), and Bear Rinehart (Needtobreathe), and his unique songwriting combines elemets of spiritual roots, his appalachian home, and his love for folk icons like James Taylor.
