Born into the country music industry, Brett T. Williams is an artist to look out for in 2018. Growing up the grandson of CCMA Hall of Fame member, Elmer Tippe and nephew to Canadian Country Superstar, Rick Tippe, there was no surprise when Brett started playing music.
When asked about the letter T in his name, Brett explains it is his way of honouring his families name, Tippe. Brett says that his grandfather and uncle have been and always will be his biggest influences in music.
March 13 saw the release of Brett's debut single to country radio across Canada. "Heard It Here First" in a song that was co-written by Aaron Goodvin/Matt Jenkins?Damian Horne.
For 15 years, Brett was the co-leader of the BC country band, The Johnson Brothers along with his brother Trent. The band quickly became one of the most popular bands in the province which saw them share the stage with many artists including Chris Young, Charlie Daniels, Dallas Smith, Chad Brownlee, Aaron Pritchett and Gord Bamford. The brothers released a full length album in 2011 and had a number of songs played across Canada on country radio. After 15 years, both brothers decided to take time off from the band to focus on solo projects.
Brett is busy in the studio working towards the release of the debut EP this fall.
