Eden Brent

Nicknamed “Little Boogaloo” by her Mississippi Delta mentor Boogaloo Ames, with whom she apprenticed for 16 years, Eden Brent is much more than her signature boogie and blues piano riffs. She has proven to be a celebrated songwriter and dynamic performer, earning eleven Blues Music Award nominations since 2009 and winning three of those awards. Her latest album, Jigsaw Heart (2014 Yellow Dog Records) is currently nominated for Acoustic Album of the Year in this year’s Blues Music Awards and Eden is nominated for Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year.
