The Canadian prairies foster creativity unlike any other region in the country. This glaring distinction is evident in the polished guitar playing and mellow vocals of Brett Schulz, a rising Winnipeg artist.
Brett was born and raised in a small southern Manitoba town, where harsh winters exhumed the need to discover a creative outlet.
The genesis of Brett’s heart for music dates back to his childhood, when he was surrounded by the influence of music and sound from family and friends. At 10 years old, he began playing guitar, eventually finding an interest in singing and song writing as well. Brett sought refuge in musical icons such as James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, John Mayer, and many more —using these influences in his solo work and with bands.
As a teenager Brett leaned into blues music, gaining admiration for artists like B.B King, Rory Gallagher, and Stevie Ray Vaughn, who inspired in Brett a whole new dynamic for his personal sound and style as a guitarist. In 2017 Brett had the opportunity to perform in Altona, MB at an out door blues festival with his own band, which was the first and only performance they ever had as a group. As time went on Brett started to write songs and produce his own music, along with playing live shows around Winnipeg as a solo acoustic artist at various venues. This combination of work eventually lead to his debut album in 2021, 'Frontline'. Since this release, Brett has also released 3 singles, Rummage Game, Rolling Away, and Remind Me - all of which demonstrate a matured and further developed sense of song writing and performance.
Most recently, Brett had his first debut concert with his own band, featuring his original music. He hopes to continue pursuing more live performances with his band and to share his music with the world. Keep up to date with any shows and musical projects by following him on Instagram
