Connecting to the words of artists like Dallas Green, Dan Mangan and Elliott Smith helped Bretton Lee John understand that he wasn’t the strange and oversensitive kid that his rural Albertan upbringing made him feel like he was. Lee’s dream is to be able to sing something that does the same for someone else.
His new single, “Rock Show,” is an effort to manifest something you wish would happen. It’s the kind of song that plays as credits roll on a summer romance movie. Listen to it while you hang out with your cat, your best friend or a new love and feel all warm and fuzzy.
