Brendan Brook's - Christian Music
Date: Sunday, August 27th, 2023
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Location: Family Entertainment Tent

The first thing you need to know about me is that I love Jesus. I was born and raised in a very rural area in southwest Wisconsin. Go Packers! I started playing guitar at age 15 and began leading worship for a youth group at 16. In 2007 I helped start a band called Finding Fortress. After varied success and drama through an opportunity to move to Nashville we fell apart in 2011. Through it all i now see God was saying now is not the time or place. After heading to Nashville my first solo album was released in the summer of 2016. I am a worship leader at heart but also love getting people on their feet clapping and singing along to my original music.
