Born in small town Port Elgin, Ontario, Brett picked up the guitar for the first time at the age of 23, setting course a musical voyage that would forge the future of this unsuspecting Canadian country-rock super talent.
Brett, a modern day renaissance man, has traversed the globe as a professional musician, model, actor, artist, and firefighter. Audiences and fans across North America have enjoyed his unique acoustic style, unmistakable raspy drawl and dynamic presence, having shared stages with such revered artist’s as Everclear, I Mother Earth, David Wilcox, Dallas Smith and Deric Ruttan to name a few. Brett has written and recorded with members of Megadeath, Fuel, Alice Cooper and Kings X, has had original music chart on international mainstream radio, and has had success with original music licensing to international television and film (most notably ABC’s daytime hit soap opera “One Life To Live”
But life is full of peaks and valleys, and Brett fell upon some dark and difficult times, losing his footing for those worlds in which he previously both thrived in and loved. Crippled with addiction, depression, and anxiety, Brett stumbled aimlessly through life for many years, leaving dormant his passion and purpose for music, creation, and connection.
In 2018, digging deeply, Brett began fully facing his demons and devices, committing to his self care, love and improvement. Steadily shedding his shackles; sober, sound and fully supported by family, friends, fans and followers; Brett has re-emerged triumphantly into his life, recalibrating his mind and heart in the direction they were meant to travel - one towards harmony, freedom, and very importantly, music.
Excitedly exploding back in to the Canadian and International music scenes, in the spring of 2019, Brett released his bold and powerful 3 song EP “Better Everyday.”; a vulnerable collection of tales of love, leaves, liquor and loss. Off of its heels, in 2020 Brett released the poignant and important song "The Questions Burn" - a co-written song denoting the tragic story of a O.P.P. Officer and friend who had found his brother who had tragically taken his own life.
