A western band, from Auburn California. Our songs are about cowboying and things cowboys do. Give us a listen and pass it on.
Brett Bush – Vocals/Lead Guitar
Brett began his musical career at a young age. He received his first guitar at age 10 and hasn’t put it down since. He loved classic rock as a kid and was most influenced by Angus Young of AC/DC. That influence carried over into some early bands Brett started including Barb Wire and Victory or Death, both of which were rock bands. IN early 2014 Brett formed Dust In My Coffee. Brett grew up in the rodeo arena riding bulls and riding cutting horses from a young age. He now trains horses and plays western music with his band all across the west.
