Born the son of a Colorado preacher man, Cowles's music entwines love, loss and a luring vulnerability with delicate melodies climaxed by heart-wrenching howls.
Brent Cowles began playing the guitar at the age of 13. Within a year, he was writing his own music and playing in bands. At 17, Cowles began a solo career under the moniker You, Me and Apollo and played mostly in the Southwest and on the West Coast.
In 2011, You, Me and Apollo transitioned from a solo act to a full band. The band released a well-received debut EP titled "Cards with Cheats" and later a full length album, "Sweet Honey." After a great ride and three years of touring the United States, the band called it quits, much to the dismay of their fans.
After a short break from music, Cowles has returned, belting out his poetry that, according to the Denver Post, would be the envy of songwriters twice his age. Cowles writes from a deep, raw, authentic place and marries it to a sound that has been likened to the soul of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding.
