A diverse journey from his small Texas desert town origins to NYC’s indie music scene informs Bret Mosley’s Americana sound, which popmatters.com described as “...no more country than R&B, no more folk than rock.”
NeuFutur Magazine commended his debut release, ‘Light & Blood’ as “a heart-felt masterpiece”. With over 2000 headlining dates under his belt, he has opened for notable international artists Trombone Shorty, Ivan Neville, George Porter, Jr., Jackie Greene, The Blind Boys of Alabama & others.
In Oz, Mosley has shared the stage with Ian Moss, Tex Perkins, et al. He's been a standout at the Nukara Music Festival, and played to capacity crowds at the Blues at Bridgetown Festival.

"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-BUNBURY, WESTERN AUSTRALIA
"Bret Mosley ripped up his slide guitar, and with Picard's help on the drums, 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-SOUTH CAROLINA
