Bret grew up in Iowa, and began singing in his mother’s hometown country church from a young age. His tastes turned to rock & roll as he became the front man for several successful bands throughout and after his college years, most notably The Pedestrians. As he grew more and more accomplished on the acoustic guitar, his tastes turned a little more toward the folk genre, and he began singing as a solo musician at several ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains. His major influences include Neil Young, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson and John Denver.
