Brig was born and raised in Washington state. He fell in love with the guitar and classic rock at a young age, and started taking lessons at age 9. Studying mainly classical guitar, he went on to pursue undergraduate and master’s degrees in classical guitar performance. Brig has never been a traditionalist, and seeks to combine his formal training with his love of other styles of music in novel ways. For him, Corretta has been an ideal way to pursue this goal.
