 “My music career is the culmination of a fairly common path,” jokes Texas-born, NYC-native BRET MOSLEY, “before making that first record, I did the usual things: ranch hand, linebacker, fur trapper, ballet dancer, stockbroker, actor, computer programmer, Pilates instructor & art handler.”

The diverse journey from small Texas desert town to New York’s indie music scene informs Mosley’s sound, which popmatters.com described as, “...no more country than R&B, no more folk than rock.”

 Nomadic beginnings prepared Mosley for years of constant touring following the release of his debut album, ‘Light & Blood’—which NeuFutur Magazine commended as “a heart-felt masterpiece”. The veteran road warrior has more than 2000 headlining dates under his belt, and has opened for notable international artists Trombone Shorty, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, George Porter, Jr., Jackie Greene, Kaki King, and The Blind Boys of Alabama, among others.

He has followed up Light & Blood with two studio releases: Charge, in collaboration with indie/jam rocker Jerry Joseph—and his self-released EP, X-ING. Mosley is currently producing a new solo album recorded in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Since immigrating to Australia in 2014, Mosley has shared the stage with prominent Aussie artists Ian Moss, The Pierce Brothers, Tex Perkins, Kallidad, Minnie Marks, Morgan Bain, The Hussy Hicks, Blue Shaddy, et al. Now building touring momentum down under, Mosley has been a standout at the Nukara Music Festival, and played to capacity crowds at the 2016 Blues at Bridgetown Festival.

"...in the desert somewhere between Son House and Leonard Cohen." - WAMC 90.3FM

"...combines every facet of Americana music to form rogue stories in song." - STEAMBOAT TODAY

" The blues is one of those genres that can easily become a paint-by-numbers kind of game, plugging in the required elements where they’re supposed to go. Bret Mosley takes the paintbrush and breaks it in two, creating something with the jagged edges that’s more authentically blues than most of what passes for the real thing these days…” - COLUMBIA FREE TIMES

“As if he was sent to summon a message to the people…with a fiery, authentic performance that has since impacted my perceptions of what a live show should be…Bret's performance reminded me that it's the music and enthusiasm of the people playing that keep me coming back for more.” - THE MUSIC INITIATIVE

“To describe your performance is not possible!! I would run out of superlatives before I got halfway. Your performance moved me in more ways than just listening to music…moved me physically and electrically, the energy raised my hair, gave me goose bumps.” - SOUTH WEST BLUES CLUB

"Bret Mosley ripped up his slide guitar...delivered a cutting set with a bluesy, snarly, lowdown sound. His bare feet matched the raw power of his persona and voice, making you want to simultaneously dance and cry." - CHARLESTON CITY PAPER
