Bio

trent yaconelli

  Trent Yaconelli is a songwriter, singer, writer, tour bus fixer, soup chef, husband, and monster fighter for his two young sons.  Trent grew up in the small town of Yreka, Ca son of  a preacher      (so naturally he chose bars and rock n roll as a career).  He currently resides in Santa Rosa , Ca with his beautiful wife Ondrejka and sons Wilder and Easton.  

  His music has been heard in film and television as well as making the Billboard charts.   He has spent 15 years on the road playing sold out rock shows and not so sold out shows with his band  Five A.M. and has recently begun writing down his exploits and encounters with God along the way.  

 Trent is now getting the chance to record and perform some of his more personal songs in intimate settings across the country.   His house concerts are becoming continually sold out affairs that  mix poetry, music, storytelling, laughter and tears. He is known to in one moment break your heart with a song about love, pain, and redemption and in the next moment have you laughing over  a story involving a bar fight, chilli cheese fries and a peppermint flavored thong.  He believes deeply in singing about and talking about everything that makes us human, everything that makes  us shine and everything that we try so hard to hide.  Trent's favorite songs are the ones that shine a light on those dark places.

 Trent's new c.d. Birdwings was released in June of 2011.  These new recordings are softer, gentler songs than his normal rock offerings.   Birdwings is composed of songs that go after topics like  the "dark night of the soul", forgiveness, letting go and most of all love.
