Biography

Brett Hayden Whitson is a singer/songwriter living in Denver, CO, who found his voice and musical stylings in a throwback style of Blues, Jazz, Swing, and Soul, while also incorporating clever Pop hooks and riffs. His soulful vocals take center stage, while his pick/strum acoustic guitar playing style, clever lyrics, and quick wit all complement each other well, and are best conveyed through his live performance.
Whitson's sound and style can be compared to Jason Mraz, Ray LaMontagne, Bill Withers, Adam Levine, Glen Hansard, Eric Clapton, but can't be said to truely sound like anyone else. He has the kind of voice that only comes around once in a long while, and a style all his own.
Whitson's first musical venture was with Laidback, a progressive jam rock band that played up and down the east coast from 2000 - 2008 that he was a cofounder of. He then focused on writing music and colaborating on lyrics with his long time friend Tom Rush, and Rushing Hayden was born. Moving to Colorado in November of 2009, Whitson began to hone his solo performance, and craft as an entertainer. Now, at the age of 31, Brett Whitson is ready to put forth his first solo album that is due out early 2013.
