Jamey Arent

Jamey Arent is a versatile guitarist, born in Denver, Colorado in 1986. At age 12, Jamey became inspired to pick up the guitar after watching a video of The Beatles. Within a week, Jamey was taking lessons with Wayne Sturdy and spending countless hours learning songs. Once Jamey heard blues-rock greats Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton, he dedicated his life to music. Jamey soon began to study legends of the blues like Freddie King and Albert Collins, as well as the heavyweights of R&B, soul and funk from Motown, Stax and New Orleans band, The Meters.

During high school, Jamey was chosen for the guitar chair in the Colorado All State Jazz Band for both 2004 and 2005 and was given the 2005 Downbeat Magazine Student Award for best blues/pop/rock soloist. That same year, Jamey was featured in Mike Varney’s Spotlight in Guitar Player Magazine. Varney, a Guitar Player Magazine Columnist, Bay Area record producer and owner of Shrapnel, Blues Bureau and Tone Center Records wrote:

”Arent's demo reveals him to be a stunning player with a style some might call bluesion, straddling blues, jazz, and rock, and he has the ability to take long solos that are head-and-shoulders above most Stevie Ray Vaughanabees. There are lots of young guitarists who one day will likely be great, but 18-year-old Arent is already great” (Guitar Player Magazine, November 2005).
