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. Within just a few short years Brett was signed to a Manhattan Record Label as the vocalist, songwriter and guitarist of his premiere rock project Carnival Divine, and in the decades to follow he would evolve into his current journey as a solo acoustic performer in the country rock genre.
Along with his burning passion for music, Brett, a modern day renaissance man, has been a Varsity Football player, Volunteer Firefighter, Visual Artist, and has traversed the globe as a professional Model and Actor.
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”).
Continuing on his musical journey, Brett’s latest musical exploits revolve around a “music that matters” philosophy and style. With releases centering around such topics as mental health, depression, suicide, and personal improvement and achievement, Brett has found a solid and passionate footing in connecting his personal experiences and creative prowess in tackling these important issues.
