Trent Romens Band is a Blues-Soul-Jam band hailing from the Twin Cities. Fronted by longtime local blues guitarist Trent Romens, this band is a culmination of Trent's ability to write songs and captivate an audience. Starting out on the local music scene when he was only 13, Trent has been turning heads and forming a new familiar sound.
From his early days as a blues-rock guitar phenom to his current incarnation as a mature player and thoughtful songwriter, Trent Romens has been a mainstay on the midwestern music scene for years. In addition to opening for national acts including Tedeschi Trucks Band, Jimmie Vaughn, and Soul Asylum, he has made prominent appearances at some of the most renowned blues festivals in the region. Now, after a brief hiatus, he is returning with the most compelling music of his career.
Trent was born in Minneapolis and spent his teenage years cutting his teeth in the Twin Cities. It didn’t take long for his first band to start turning heads. Trent became a local sensation, and soon, he was headlining festivals and theaters, living out Trent’s childhood dreams. The band was short-lived, but despite their brief existence, they made an indelible impact on the Minnesota blues scene and established Trent as an artist of rare talent and depth.
In the wake of the band’s break up, Trent stepped away, got married, and disappeared from the stage. But music was never far from his mind. Upon returning to the guitar, he found that he had evolved as a musician and songwriter. Written from the perspective of a man who had lived out his dreams only to see them fade away, these new songs reignited his passion for music. Trent has been steadily rebuilding his career, and with new releases scheduled for this year and beyond, he is poised to leave a lasting legacy.
