About Me

Trent Carroll is an accomplished guitar player having made roads internationally as a professional side-man guitarist and graduating from the Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood, California (USA).

" Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia, guitarist Trent Gerard Carroll was exposed to music from an early age, thanks to the influence of his mother, a pianist. Told it was “just a phase” when he picked up the guitar at age 11, it clearly was not. Beginning his studies in earnest, the instrument became his inspiration, as he would perform in school concerts and events at every opportunity, progressing over time to cover and original gigs in his hometown. 

Just three months after the passing of his mother, Trent advanced his career to the next phase. Traveling 9,349 miles to Los Angeles, he enrolled at Musicians Institute in Hollywood. A now graduate of the G.I.T program after studying under some of the world’s most succesful and renowned instructors, Trent has been making his mark as a sideman for artist’s travelling all around the United States.  


Rock, blues, jazz and beyond – with a guitar as his passport, Trent has made a trans-continental journey to a destination of vibrant musicality and significant shredding.  "
