Global Cowboy



Brent Moyer

“Brent Moyer. Known as the Global Cowboy, his creations provide a broad perspective of human experience.  He speaks a global language of emotions sparking the campfires of our imaginations.”
Charles Chiarchiaro 

“His guitar playing is diverse yet precise and his sense of composition is refined yet free as an eagle in a blue Wyoming sky.”
Bob Saporiti – Senior Vice President, Warner Bros. Records, retired

“Brent Moyer is ripe with versatility; Tex-Mex, country, blues and folk in his blood, exempt from the mainstream of Nashville.”
Rolling Stone, Europe

“Sehr good…superior acoustic guitar work…Moyer’s voice has a relaxing, country-feeling, perfect for his well written songs, a varied and contemporary performer.”
Concerto Europe

From Ring of Fire – the Songs of Johnny Cash

“And one of the best musical contributions is provided by Brent Moyer, who puts down his guitar just long enough to deliver a dynamite trumpet part in the show’s title tune.”
Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“The instrumentalists shine in solo moments … Brent Moyer revs his guitar”
Los Angeles Times

Raised in the mountains of Wyoming, Brent’s hot, high-energy guitar style and rich baritone voice wrapped around his original songs invoke classical Heartland sounds, the intricate melding of American musical genres; Country, R&B and Americana.  Authenticity and soul, it’s all there.

Known as the Global Cowboy, he has shared the stage with many famous artists from country star Willie Nelson to pop diva Donna Summer and has played lead guitar for the legendary, Lynn Anderson (Rose Garden).  He has also performed on Broadway (NYC) in the hit musical, Ring of Fire, the songs of Johnny Cash.  As a producer and studio musician, he appears on numerous CD’s and has also recorded fourteen albums of original material with his songs being covered by artists in Europe and North America.

Brent Moyer has been deep into the heart of the musical experience all of his life and he knows how to give that experience over to his audience. His live shows are marked by musical honesty and emotional intensity – and for being a fun time for all.  Brent is a true craftsman, songsmith and entertainer.
That’s what he does.



As a solo artist, Brent’s personable, unassuming style has gained him many loyal fans throughout the United States and Western Europe and he continues to amaze his fans with his virtuosity on guitar and trumpet and his diverse blend of musical styles ranging from Tex-Mex to country, Cajun to jazz.

Here are a few samples of his music.
