From the Navy, to the restaurant business, to Physical Therapy and music…
Brooks Herring is a singer-songwriter, recording artist, and performer from Columbia, SC, based in Nashville, TN.
Brooks writes and performs original music, and covers a wide variety of music from nearly every genre and generation in venues all over Nashville, and has entertained crowds in the Carolinas, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Georgia, Maryland, Wisconsin, and Virginia. He performs at all different types of venues and events, including festivals, weddings, private parties, bars, restaurants, and markets.
Brooks’ original music dances somewhere between Country, Alt-Rock, and Blues, with strong patriotic undertones inspired by his service in the US Navy, and time working for the US Army. LISTEN HERE ON SPOTIFY!
Brooks primarily plays solo, but also fronts the SC-based band “Sellout” and duets with many other incredible musicians. Off stage, Brooks works as a Physical Therapist, and devotes much of his time advocating for Veterans recovering from combat trauma.
“I come from humble beginnings in Conway, SC. I quit guitar lessons as a kid because it was too hard. One day I felt a burning desire to pick it up again. I joined the Navy, and deployments were the perfect time to practice.
After leaving active duty, and spending some time as an Army contractor, I decided to come home to South Carolina. I owned a restaurant for a few years and graduated from PT school, then that burning desire to pursue music became an inferno.
I finally decided to pursue this dream, and this year I moved to Nashville! I sing, I write, and I cover music from every genre and generation. Most of the time, it’s just me and my guitar, but you can catch me with my lead guitarist Charles Riley more often than not. I play from the heart. What I feel, I sing. I hope a few others can feel it with me.”
Here are a few things I’ve been caught doing…
