Texas-born, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Bret Mosley performs in a traditional folk and blues style, his solo gigs consisting of nothing but himself, a Dobro (played lap style with a slide), and a stompboard on which he keeps time with a booted foot.
But he's not a hidebound traditionalist, and his music incorporates influences ranging from traditional country and first-generation Delta blues to hip-hop and Beck's similarly idiosyncratic take on the singer/songwriter stereotype. Although Mosley has been singing and playing since childhood, his press bio claims that, prior to becoming a professional musician, he held jobs as "a linebacker, a fur trapper, a ballet dancer, a stockbroker, an actor, a computer programmer, and a yoga teacher." Settling in Brooklyn and becoming a regular on the local singer/songwriter scene, Mosley recorded his live-in-the-studio debut album, Light & Blood, in Woodstock, NY, and released it in late 2007 on the Woodstock Music Works label. Along with his solo performances, Mosley also performs with a backing band consisting of cellist Trevor Exter, bassist John Trent, and drummer Craig Santiago. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi
