About Brett:
Brett Harris is a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist from Durham, NC. His first full length album, Man of Few Words, was featured by Paste magazine's "Best of What's Next", NPR's "All Songs Considered: Second Stage" and made several "Best of 2010" lists, drawing comparisons to the music of Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, Harry Nilsson, and Emitt Rhodes.
Additionally, Brett has participated as a core band member in live performances of Big Star's Third, playing in the US, UK, Spain, and Australia. He has also served as a touring member of jangle pop progenitors The dB's. 

Brett has recently completed work on a new LP due out later this year. 
"...pop ease and gospel earnestness, soul gusto and country textrue - into seamless syntheses that stick on first listen. It's the sort of thing that gets described or dismissed as Beatles-esque, but the material is artfully built and efffortlessly rendered, wearing its cool within its craftsmanship."
-Grayson Currin, Independent Weekly
"Mr. Sunshine certainly recalls Big Star - ornately produced songs that have a pop sensibility and a lurking darkness"
-Rudi Greenberg, Washington Post
