Artist Biographies:
Berklee-trained arranger/conductor Brent Havens has written music for orchestras, feature films and virtually every kind of television. His TV work includes movies for networks such as ABC, CBS and ABC Family Channel Network, commercials, sports music for networks such as ESPN and even cartoons. Havens has also worked with the Doobie Brothers and the Milwaukee Symphony, arranging and conducting the combined group for Harley Davidson’s 100th Anniversary Birthday Party Finale attended by over 150,000 fans. He has worked with some of the world’s greatest orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic in London, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Minnesota Orchestra, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, the Dallas Symphony, the Fort Worth Symphony, the San Diego Symphony and countless others.

Havens recently completed the score for the film “Quo Vadis,” a Premier Pictures remake of the 1956 gladiator film. In 2013 he worked with the Baltimore Symphony and the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens to arrange and produce the music for the Thanksgiving Day halftime show between the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, adapting both classical music and rock songs into a single four minute show. Havens is Arranger/Guest Conductor for nine symphonic rock programs – the Music of Led Zeppelin, the Music of the Doors, the Music of Pink Floyd, the Music of the Eagles, the Music of Queen, the Music of Michael Jackson, the Music of The Who and most recently The Music of Whitney Houston and the Music of The Rolling Stones.

 

Terry Brock’s first professional job in the music business was as a vocalist on the Kansas album, Drastic Measures, in 1983. He also worked on albums for Johnny Van Zant (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Molly Hatchet and was lead vocalist/songwriter in the band, Network. Terry co-wrote “Back In America,” the soundtrack to European Vacation with Chevy Chase. He toured with The Steve Morse Band and has recorded two albums, Native Sons and Walk In The Fire, with his band, Strangeways, on BMG/RCA records. He moved to New York City to work with producer Neil Kernon on bands such as Aviator, Britny Fox, Heaven’s Edge and Bonham. While in New York, he lent backing vocals to Michael Bolton’s albums Everybody’s Crazy; Time, Love and Tenderness and Soul Provider. His recent work includes his solo CD, Back To Eden, Seventh Key’s live DVD/CD release, Live In Atlanta, and lead vocalist and co-writer on Streets and City Boy guitarist Mike Slamer’s solo CD, Nowhere Land.

 

Glenn DeLaune attributes his talents to his grandfather, Lester J. Lalande, who taught him to play and sing at the age of four. From the 1980’s and early to mid-1990’s, Glenn fronted the rock band, Gangster, and has toured with nationally known acts such as Foreigner, 38 Special, David Lee Roth, Kansas< Zebra, BTO, Grand Funk Railroad, Saigon Kick and Foghat. He has achieved his own smooth flowing style of guitar magic and vocals, and his virtuosity on all instruments shines through on the recordings he produces from his studio. Glenn has released five self-produced albums on the Divine Recordings label, and he performed all of the instruments on his latest release, Road To Redemption, a Blues extravaganza. He is affiliated with BMI as a writer and publisher with a catalog of over 250 songs to his credit.

 

As a preacher’s son, John Hines began singing with his family in church as a small boy. Standing on a chair to be tall enough to play an upright bass next to his guitar-playing older brother, Dan, John sang and played his first public duet in the second grade. He is a journey-man studio and performance vocalist and prolific song writer who has worked with the likes of Billy Davis Jr. and Marilyn McCoo, Phil Keaggy, Glen Campbell, CeCe Winans and Dion Demucchi, among others, and has performed as a vocalist with many of the finest orchestras in the country. As a club musician in the 1970’s, John was an avid fan of The Eagles’ music and covered nearly every song they recorded, while performing with his brother in The Hines Brother’s Band.

 

Randy Jackson is the lead singer/guitarist for the rock band Zebra. His first foray into recording success began with the self-titled Zebra debut album, released on Atlantic Records in 1983. Critically acclaimed for its lush rock sounds, due in large part to Jackson’s searing lead vocals and soaring guitar leads, the album sold 75,000 copies the first week. “Who’s Behind The Door” and “Tell Me What You Want,” written by Jackson, received serious notice in the press and helped to form legions of Zebra fans almost instantly. The latest Zebra release, Zebra IV, was also produced and engineered by Jackson. He toured as keyboardist, guitarist and backing vocalist in 1989 with the original, reunited Jefferson Airplane, their last tour together. He has also worked extensively in the area of musical software and hardware development.
