Charismatic artist and multi-instrumentalist Brett Andrew is no stranger behind the scene. He cut his teeth as a working performer throughout regional venues in the northeast while honing his skills as a studio engineer, producer, and entrepreneur. He'd partnered with a friend and built a 24 track recording studio and production company, working with some very talented aspiring and established artists. He was adopted into Robert Randolph's Family Band, and spent five years sharing the stage with some of the greatest musicians and entertainers out there. From studio sessions to international tours and the late night shows - you could almost say he's done it all. Now, Brett has returned to where it all began and has brought together a band of his own, serving up a cocktail of original music and select covers with a base of soul, a splash of funk, and a dash of reggae, blended with some country-twanging, gritty-pickin' Rock and Roll.
