Brent Jensen is a Canadian freelance writer and rock critic who lives in the Toronto area. Jensen grew up in a small town in northern Ontario in the 1980s and developed an affinity for the hard rock and heavy metal bands of his youth as a distraction from his rural upbringing. He is the author of No Sleep 'Til Sudbury: Adventures in 80s Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Deconstruction (Edwards Press, 2012), in which he reflects on his teenage life and the important role music played as a means to make sense of the world that surrounded him as he navigated the challenges of small town adolescence. As Jensen puts it, "It's the rock and roll book I could never find in the bookstore".
Jensen maintains Facebook and Twitter pages to network with his friends and readers.
