Brooke Bentley Blackburn, the primary composer & guitar player of the Juno nominated, Toronto based Rhythm & Blues band, "Blackburn", has recently sprouted his solo project, "The Bentley Collective." Performing for thirty years as a Canadian musician, Brooke has accumulated a vast repertoire of original compositions. His solo album, Songs, consists of blues/groove songs & ballads that incorporate various styles and compositional methods acquired throughout his unwavering career.

Playing with the likes of Eugene Smith, Bobby Dean Blackburn (father), Shakura S’Aida and other prominent musicians in the Canadian Blues/Roots scene, Brooke has inherited a writing style that consists of melody, groove and lyrical structure well-rooted in the Blues tradition. His compositions are inspired by his personal experiences alongside his unique guitar style which in turn connect musician to audience in a most profound and human way.
