Mick Taylor of The Rolling Stones
Micky Moody of Whitesnake
Randy Bachman of BTO/The Guess Who
Since first becoming active in the music industry over a decade ago, Brett has been featured on notable works like CBC’s Dragons’ Den, BBC Introducing, and in The Independent. Performing between 220-240 gigs in an average year as both an artist and a guitarist for hire for festivals, weddings, corporate gatherings, and private parties, Brett has established a reputation in Canada and the U.K as a musician who knows how to deliver— in terms of both talent and reliability.
Between 2014 and 2018 Brett resided in London, England where he quickly became a popular stand-in for prominent guitarists like Robbie McIntosh (Paul McCartney/John Mayer) and Murray Gould (The Wanted/Take That/Elton John). During his time in London he also came under the mentorship of well-known British jazz guitarist Femi Temowo (Amy Winehouse) while completing his degree at the British Irish Modern Music Institute. Brett has now cemented himself as a staple of the Canadian music scene and is based out of Vancouver Island, Canada as a working musician, producer, guitar teacher and guitarist for hire. He is proud to endorse RotoSound Strings and Graph Tech Guitar Hardware.
Whether it be playing to thousands on festival stages or gigging in venues across North America and Europe on famous stages like The Troubadour (London), Massey Hall (Toronto), The PNE (Vancouver), or Foro Bizarro (Mexico City), Brett’s 20+ years of musical experience comes to a head in his mix of rock, pop, blues and indie. With flexible rates and quick turnaround times for bookings, Brett is the perfect solo guitarist for hire or band addition for your next gig, wedding, or party.
