Kent Shores is a young guitarist who is beginning to make his mark in the jazz scene. He is currently studying with guitar virtuoso Fred Hamilton in the jazz program at the University of North Texas. Also at North Texas, he has been a member of the 4 O’Clock Lab Band under the direction of Luke Brimhall and the L5 Guitar Ensemble under the direction of Scott Kruser. Kent has also studied with Bobby Cairns, Jim Head, Carl Lotsberg, Mike Rud, Bill Coon, Dr. Glen Halls, John Stowell, and Miles Okazaki. Having taken to guitar at the early age of seven, by the end of high school Kent was already earning many accolades. He was awarded the Edmonton Public School Board Music Scholarship and the Larry Schrum Jazz award. He has also played in the Littlebirds Big Band under the direction of Joel Gray as well as a Ukrainian polka band called Euphoria. SEE Magazine’s Don Berner calls this emerging musician one “whose skill level belies his age.”
