    I would highly recommend hiring Bret; he offers beautiful musical expertise in his approach to playing and is a joy to work with. Bret plays keys, guitar and plays the backing tracks when I perform as a singer. I am continually impressed by his interpretation of music, he strikes a wonderful balance between supporting me as a vocalist and showcasing beautiful and unique fills on his instrument. He works hard, is responsible and on time and is an all round lovely person. He is truly a talent and I feel grateful to work with him.

    You will not regret hiring Bret for your project!! He is an incredibly talented multi-instrumentalist and has written and recorded several keys and guitar parts on my productions. Outside of his playing ability, he has also offered me invaluable advice throughout the songwriting and production process.

    Bret is one of the most tasteful piano players I’ve worked with. He plays in a variety of styles and goes above and beyond to make my projects sound great. I’ve recommended him to a lot of friends for numerous projects and they’ve all been super happy with his work. Highly recommend hiring him for your project!
