Biography

Born and raised in Louisiana, Bret Vidrine spent his years prior to attending college learning to play various instruments, as well as developing his own unique finger picking method on guitar. During his years at Northwestern State University, Bret would begin to focus not only on his songwriting, but also on forming and playing with Drunk By Noon- a staple band of the local college bar scene.

In 2004, Bret moved to Lafayette, where he would become well-known to the patrons of local songwriter nights. At age 24, Bret would become the first artist signed to the Right Note Records label and subsequently released his first album, “Lonely For Love”. Following the release and promotion of the album, Bret took time off to reflect and get back to basics while focusing on his songwriting once more. The storylines that take place in Bret’s songs are based on real life experiences; friends made, memories created, lessons learned all play important roles.

Now, at 28, Bret is returning to center stage under a brand new label, Comeaux Productions, with his sophomore effort- “Again”. Working with Grammy Winning Producer and Engineer, Tony Daigle, and Grammy Winning Songwriter, David Egan, his second release will showcase what has taken place in Bret’s life over the last four years.

Bret counts among his influences the likes of Ryan Adams, Amos Lee, Bob Dylan, Damien Rice, M. Ward, Tom Petty, Ray LaMontagne, and My Morning Jacket, just to name a few.
