Brenton was born Alfred Jesse Smith in Shreveport, Louisiana. He and his family moved San Pedro, California when he was yet a child and then to the community of Compton where he attended high school and Compton College. It was during this period that his musical interests began to manifest themselves and he assumed the professional name Brenton Wood, using the name of his home county. It was also during this time that Brenton became inspired by artists such as Jesse Belvin and the immortal Sam Cooke and began to cultivate his songwriting skills and become an accomplished pianist.
