Brett Talley has been involved with music since the 3rd grade and it seems he will never stop. His musical career includes his two years as lead guitarist and producer for the Philly based pop-rock act, OutSet, his continuing status as lead guitarist for one of Philadelphia’s most popular rock outfits, IKE, and now as a solo artist accompanied by Susan Steen Talley (IKE/Susan Steen) on bass and Jamie Briggs (The Cold Roses) on drums.
In 2008, Brett released his first self-produced solo album, "LUSH," which featured more of Brett's pop sensibilities. The release of his most recent darker solo effort, the free digital download EP, “Emancipator,” earned him a 2009 Homey Award (of 93.7 WSTW’s Hometown Heroes hosted by Mark Rogers) for “Best EP,” along with “Best Rock Song of 2009,” for the song “The Future’s in the Rhythm Now,” as well as his third consecutive Homey Award for lead guitarist. Brett has won 14 Homey Awards in various categories since their inception in 2007, holding the record for most wins.
Brett’s music contains hard-driving pop-rock sounds with darker and more haunting elements which define his unique style. Brett remains committed to offering his skills as a recording engineer and producer to interested artists and bands along with continuing to write, record and produce new music of his own as well as with IKE.
