Live Music: Brent Martens (feat. Ian Miller)
Brent Martens is one of the most sought-after guitarists in Portland, in both live and studio settings. His across-the-board chops, multi-instrumentalism and dabblings in pretty much every musical form make him a desired collaborator.
Brent plays lead guitar for Willamette Week’s “Best New Band” Ural Thomas and the Pain, and also sits in regularly on guitar/upright bass with two-time Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductee Pete Krebs in their group “The Catnip Brothers.”
Brent’s solo style ranges from jazz to blues to bossanova to classics. Brent can often be caught singing in Portuguese as well.
