He cleverly draws on diverse, but related music styles to shape his own musical vision in the company of excellent musicians.” Pete Feenstra U.K. “Imagine Lou Reed & The Rolling Stones mixed with all the regional flavors of American roots music and that’s the sound of Bret Coats and his new release Music for the People.
