Born in Phoenix and currently residing in Los Angeles, Bret’s musical career began with the discovery of computer trackers as a teenager. Soon after, he led electro-industrial collective Voxis before a stint in the Midwest to hone his mix of explosive guitar riffs and ghostly vocal hooks. The one-man beat- heavy electronic noise collage Blue Stahli launched his solo career, which expanded to include Sunset Neon - an indie pop blast of ocean breeze, sun-drenched skin, and nu-disco dance floors. Beyond artist projects, Bret produces custom music which can be heard in film and video game trailers.
Bret returns to his tracking roots, using modern tracker Renoise to craft the newest Blue Stahli sound. His latest music is a window into his journey through being his mother’s caretaker as she battled malignant brain cancer and mourning the loss of his biggest champion after she passed away in 2018 while additionally reconnecting with his family origins after the loss of a major cornerstone. His mother’s piano is the root of many of these songs.
