An accomplished singer/guitarist and writer of songs performs originals from his CD's as well as a vast repertoire of music from the forties, fifties, sixties, seventies, on to the present, spanning multiple genres. Just when you think you have his style pegged, he surprises with a unique twist. The professional music scene in Europe and the U.S. has been his niche for the past few decades. He takes great pride in appealing to diverse audiences while attaining the highest level of professionalism.
By age 15, he was recording in Decca Studios in London. He continued to gain experience through the years in Cabaret, Musical Stage Productions, an Irish Show Band, a Country Rock Band and a Las Vegas Show Band. Music has always been the backdrop of his life.
Growing up on the far Northwest coast of England, he experienced a unique view of life. He learned the dangers and trials of trawler fishing from fishermen around the home hearth. It is from his heart and soul that he writes of these men and the places and events remembered from those times in his first solo CD, Fishermen of Fleetwood.
Being attracted to people and their individual stories, he is enthralled by the unique history of the various geographical regions of the U.S. especially the Southwest and the Southeast. By unlocking the provocative nature of history, Brooks pens songs about people, places, and events...songs capable of breathing life into long forgotten heroes and their special dance with life It is the melding of his songs, his command of the guitar, his ever changing repertoire and his professionalism that allow him to captivate and entertain. He draws in his audience with his exceptional musical talent and his soft accent.

Tonight will be a night to remember at the St. James Hotel. It was the retirement party for Cowboy Singer/Songwriter Rod Taylor. Rod retired from Philmont Scout Ranch after more than 30 years of serious cowboying. The evening was a celebration of music, friends and memories for Rod. I enjoyed being on stage with both Ry and Rod Taylor.
Looking forward to returning to New Mexico in December.
