Recent critical acclaim for Shine On Rainy Day

“…what promises to be Cobb’s breakout LP as a singer-songwriter.”—Rolling Stone

“…masterfully understated wit…”—NPR Music

“…a gift for teasing out the textures of a place, not only through the richness of his written descriptions, but also through the cultivated naturalness in the feel of his music.”—NPR Music

&ldquo ;…a gorgeous solo album that promises to place him in the top echelon of
this century’s young troubadours…”—WXPN World Café

“The simply produced, largely acoustic Shine On Rainy Day is
reminiscent of Kris Kristofferson’s debut for its importance, of Billy Joe Shaver
for its down-home intelligence and even of James Taylor for its deceptively lazy delivery.”—WXPN World Cafe

“…a trait that pushes all the right buttons throughout the ten tracks on this impressive effort that proves these relatives with impeccable musical synergy have more than just bloodlines in common.”—American Songwriter

“Brent Cobb paints the joy and sadness of rural life in stunning detail…”
Nashville Scene

“It’s a soft, acoustic ballad, different from what you may have already heard from Cobb. The Georgia-born singer/songwriter has a knack for joyous, energetic songs that celebrate life and the good things in it.”—Noisey

“A blend of attitude and inspirat ion, Shine on Rainy Day may be the ideal antidote for today’s troubling times.”—No Depression

“Let me just say that Brent Cobb is pretty damn good.”—Sounds Like Nashville

“Brent Cobb’s debut supplies more heart, honesty and depth than nearly any other release so far this year.”—Wide Open Country

Of the music and working with producer (and cousin) Dave Cobb, Brent comments, “It’s not as good as it’s going to get. But if it’s the last thing that I ever do, if I died the day after it came out, then thank God I was able to record it because the songs and the production, it was everything I wanted to say. Finally.”
Dave adds, “I wanted to work with Brent for very selfish reasons. When he lifts a pen and opens his mouth, it sounds like home. I did his record because he’s part of the fabric of South Georgia and the soundtrack to my family. Pure rural country soul filled music.”

Earlier this year, Brent was featured on Dave’s widely praised Southern Family compilation—contributing the song “Down Home” and writing the standout “Sweet By & By,” which was recorded by Miranda Lambert. Of “Down Home,” Wide Open Country declares, “…one of the most earnest and accurate retellings of everyday life in rural Georgia. The mixture of Cobb’s charming southern drawl, brilliant storytelling and flawless production melds into a track that is impossible to resist.”

Born in Ellaville, GA (population 1,60 9), Brent moved to Nashville in 2008 and has since found widespread success as a writer with songs recorded by Lambert (“Old Shit”), Kenny Chesney (“Don’t It”), Luke Bryan (“Tailgate Blues”), David Nail (“Grandpa’s Farm”), Kellie Pickler (“Rockaway”) and Eli Young Band (“Go Outside and Dance”) among others.
