Aside from CRB, Brock contributes his guitar talents to the contemporary praise band at St. John Lutheran Church in Cypress. Brock is married to Martha Schoennagel Miller (also a licensed civil engineer) who shares his love of music and has been hugely supportive of his past and present musical endeavors. They met in CE 317 (traffic engineering class) at Texas A&M in 1985 and were married in 1987. They have lived in the Copperfield area since 1990. Daughter Kristina, currently a freshman at Texas A&M, serves as guest keyboardist, when available, on several CRB songs. Brock’s 2 other children, Hannah (17) and Clayton (12) attend school in the Cy-Fair area.    

Brock grew up in San Antonio and embraced the 70’s and early 80’s music scene there. His parents set his guitar ambitions into motion, with a classical guitar for his 8th grade graduation present. Brock played throughout his high school years in his church’s guitar choir and several garage bands. He lists Boston, AC/DC, Def Leppard, UFO, KISS, April Wine, Triumph, and the Scorpions as primary early influences that peaked his interest in electric guitar. His ultimate guitar hero is Tom Scholz (Boston), with Angus Young, the Schenker brothers (Scorpions), and Randy Rhoads (Ozzy Osbourne) as close seconds. Brock still plays the (Ventura) Les Paul he bought in 1977 with money from mowing lawns and neighborhood carpentry work.   

Brock graduated from Texas A&M University with a B.S. and M.S. in Civil Engineering, in 1984 and 1986, respectively. He remains active in the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and served as past President of Houston Branch - ASCE.
