Born in 1972 and hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah - Jamen Brooks fronted the popular Utah local band Clover. After 3 successful albums in the late 90's and opening for countless national acts (Beck, Toad the Wet Sprocket) Jamen decided to venture out on his own. With the release of his solo debut Sleepyhead and jamenbrooksmusic.com, Jamen explored a more experimental approach to songwriting, winning critical acclaim and local fans. Jamen has been inspired by numerous artists including Beck, The Beatles, Grant Lee Buffalo, Wilco and Air. His songs have appeared in numerous television shows (MTV's Laguna Beach and Party of Five). As Jamen continues to produce and perform, his experimental presentation of music will continue to win him new fans.
