There is a discipline that you learn growing up playing sports, which I did through college. It is always my goal to work harder than the next guy. Bretts soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics are derived from a myriad of personal experience. One pass through the California natives self-titled debut album, you are completely immersed in his love, passion, hope and honesty.Everyone leaves a trail of almosts and bittersweet memories behind on the road to the one, says Brett. It has happened to me on my journeyit happens to everyone - but Im learning to use those moments now when I write music. Im a hopeless romantic who feels everything, and that shows in my songs.Brett makes love look like an art form with hits including his debut No. 1 PLATINUM-certified single Sleep Without You and the chart-topping 2X PLATINUM-certified follow up In Case You Didnt Know.

I like that the emotion carries the songs, where the music is almost secondary, he explains. "Tim McGraws 'Dont Take The Girl that for me was the first time I heard a country song and said this is what I wanna do. That influenced me; as a songwriter and a performer, I want to connect like that. When your audience really feels what youre singing, it becomes about much more than the show. You have a connectionyou truly have a fan and a shared special moment."Having previously toured with Superstars Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and Thomas Rhett, the California native is currently on the road with Lady Antebellums YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR 2017 before kicking off his headline CALIVILLE TOUR this fall.
