About Bret Mosley...

He smiles off to the side, “I first picked up my father’s Stella Harmony guitar when I was six. A few years later — a good while before turntables became musical instruments — I turned a Chet Atkins record by hand to learn Yakety Axe note-by-note. I still have the guitar, even though some dear soul at UPS drove a forklift through it several years ago…the culmination to an extremely uphill stint in L.A. It was that experience, though, that helped wring out my first song, Lord, Girl…I still need to record that one”.

Rarely could an artist be said to transcend, yet include, the most raw and real elements of hill country blues, roots rock, folk, soul and rap. Nevertheless — with bone-deep authenticity — that’s exactly what Bret Mosley does, wrestling deftly with longing, belonging, and world-weariness...on the way home to hope & grace.

Mosley’s critically acclaimed debut album Light & Blood was released in December 2007 on Woodstock MusicWorks, and hailed as “a heart-felt masterpiece” by NeuFutur Magazine. Recorded by Pete Caigan (Bad Brains, Tony Levin) at Flymax Studio in Woodstock, NY and mixed by Grammy-nominated engineer Roman Klun (Sarah McLachlan, Joan Osborne, Spin Doctors). Every track was performed live with no overdubs or punch-ins.

Following the album’s release and enthusiastic reception, Mosley toured tirelessly across the U.S. — over 200 dates per year. His unreservedly original, deeply authentic sound has garnered an audience ranging from cowhands to cops. In recent years, Reverbnation repeatedly ranked Bret in the Top 10 Americana artists out of Brooklyn, NY. Recently, he was ranked #1 Americana artist in Western Australia.

He has opened for George Porter, Jr., Trombone Shorty, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Jackie Greene, Cedric Burnside Project, Junior Brown, Donavon Frankenreiter, et al.

U.S. festival appearances have included Mountain Jam, Wave Gathering, NedFest, JazzFest, SXSW; as well as Blues at Bridgetown and Nukara Music Festival in Australia.

Living in Perth since late 2014, Bret is building touring momentum in Australia—having shared the stage recently with Ian Moss, Morgan Bain, Minnie Marks, The Pierce Brothers, Kalidad, The Hussy Hicks, Blue Shaddy, Tex Perkins and John Meyer.
