“Now here’s a cat who currently lives in Austin, Texas that sounds like a mixture of Iggy Pop, Lou Reed with the slutziness of The Rolling Stones and packed with plenty of blues, rock, funk and Americana for you to foam over.”                   Glenn Milligan U.K.

Album “Music for the People finds respected sideman Bret Coats in unfamiliar territory as a poacher turned gamekeeper. 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. Bret Coats, Americana rocker, singer, songwriter and bass player currently resides in Austin, Texas and is no stranger to living in other eclectic music cities. After years of following the vibrations from city to city, Coats discovered Austin’s music scene, welcoming him with open arms.”  Agent Jo Rae Di Menno Austin TX
