Hear Brent Cobb’s Rootsy and Reflective New Song ‘Black Crow’

Don VanCleave

Brent Cobb seeks freedom and redemption in his gritty new song, “Black Crow.”

Much like his previous releases, Cobb’s soulful and twangy voice is paired with plucky, blues-infused accompaniment that hits your right in the soul. Anyone who loves music inspired by life in south will instantly connect with his intricate story-songs, including “Black Crow.”

In the song, Cobb describes himself as a man who finds himself behind bars who wishes he could make things right. As a rising artist, his ability to showcase his impressive vocals while making you feel like he’s sharing his story during an intimate conversation is mind-boggling. The world of country music needs songwriters unafraid to share stories of every day life, no matter how small. Thankfully, Brent Cobb is here to bridge that ever-widening gap between the authentic and the over-produced.
