Jamen Brooks: Biography
Jamen Brooks is the former frontman of the enormously popular Utah band ‘Clover’, which sold out large venues and thousands of albums. In 2000, Jamen Brooks wrote and produced his first Solo album, Sleepyhead. He is now performing and recording successful solo work.
In 1993 Jamen Brooks, Mitch Glende, and Brant Paulsen started a band named Clover and began to write and then record Clover’s first album, Tanglewood. By the time it was recorded–a year later–Clover decided it might be time to play somewhere besides their basement. It didn’t take long for the band to gain a cult-like following, despite their reluctance to seek the limelight. Even though they were technically a fledgling group, their folksy-rocking sound was so well developed that their fan base more than doubled at every show. The smaller venues missed their chance to feature the trio within a year. By the time their second album, Sun, was released in the summer of 1995 they were consistently selling out their own headlining shows in clubs that normally turn their noses up to anything but national acts. With Sun on the market their radio play also boomed. Between the two albums the group produced four radio singles that all reached either top five or number one most requested status on X96 (KXRK).
