Early

While studying piano at the University of Missouri in St. Louis, Brooks served as Student Conductor of the St. Louis Symphony and Assistant Conductor of the Bach Society, blending these classical influences with his rock roots. [19] He involved symphony players in live rock events and pop studio recording sessions. He directed two broadway shows, performed at local rock venues, produced a series of children's albums titled "Super Gang!", [20] and continued to write and produce music for advertising and corporate clients Anheuser-Busch, McDonald's, among others.[ citation needed ]

He also began to record and produce live music in area churches New Covenant Fellowship and Grace World Outreach Center where he worked with artists Kent Henry, Ron Tucker, Don Moen, Charlie & Jill LeBlanc, Jeff Hamlin, Carl & Leann Albrecht, and others who would later become key figures in his work. In 1983, Brooks produced two Praise & Worship albums, Behold His Majesty [21] and Glory to the Lamb, [22] the first recordings of their kind to capture live symphony orchestra and rock rhythm section with live Worship.

Hosanna Music

In 1984 these two albums came to the attention of New Wine Magazine, who offered to help market the recordings in their bi-monthly issues. [23] As the magazine was preparing to shut down in 1985, the owners made a unique proposal to Brooks – they suggested that if he would continue to produce live Praise & Worship albums on a bi-monthly basis, they would offer their subscribers a new music album every eight weeks instead of a magazine. He agreed and the "Hosanna Music" series was born. Brooks went on to produce over 100 successful albums for Integrity's Hosanna Music, mostly recorded live in churches throughout the US and around the world. Notable among these are Lift Him Up, [24] God Is Able, [25] and Sing Out [26] featuring Ron Kenoly and Give Thanks [27] featuring Don Moen. While producing for Integrity, Brooks also created a series of instrumental albums, choral works, orchestral arrangements, and concert videos.

In 1985, Brooks arranged and produced seven albums including All Hail King Jesus featuring Kent Henry, one of the largest selling Hosanna albums in Integrity Music's history. [28] The album went on to be certified Gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500,000 units.

[30] In that same year, Brooks also arranged and produced Experience PEACE, the first in the Hosanna Instrumental Series, which is currently used by Korean Airlines to underscore their in-flight entertainment. [31]

Brooks arranged and produced eight recordings in 1988 including "A Family Christmas" [32] for Maranatha Music and Steadfast Love with Don Moen, [33] and albums featuring Charlie LeBlanc, Marty Nystrom, and Joseph Garlington, plus 3 more instrumental albums including Experience JOY. [34]
