A 25 year-old singer/songwriter from Mobile, AL, Brett LaGrave combines smooth melodic lyrics with intricate guitar work to create a down-home bluesy sound true to his southern roots. Since he began gigging at the age of 15 with his first band Brett has honed his musical abilities around many long nights of jamming at bars, playing with friends, and through the sounds of The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the like. Brett received vocal training as a member of the St. Pauls Select Ensemble. He performed with the Ensemble at the Washington National Cathedral during the 1998 Thanksgiving holiday service, the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel and as a duet at both the White House and George Washington’s home at Mount Vernon. From 2000-2003 Brett’s music took him through the college circuit in Central Alabama. Recently he has played primarily along the Gulf Coast, including several shows in the Parish at the House of Blues in New Orleans. Twice in 2006 Brett shared the stage with Eliot Morris, at the First Light Marathon in Mobile, AL. in January and at in October. In July of 2006 Brett opened up for Chris Berry and Panjea in the Parish Room of the House of Blues. He currently has a biweekly residency at Handsome Willy’s in New Orleans. Brett’s soulful performance combined with his ability to engage a crowd, produce a night one is not soon to forget.
