Brett Kingman is a professional guitarist, based in Melbourne, Australia.
Inspired by 70’s classic and glam-rock guitarists and beginning his professional career at the age of 12, Brett is now one of Australia’s better-known hired guns. He has spent time touring and recording with Australian icons such as James Reyne (presently touring), Daryl Braithwaite, Ross Wilson, Renee Geyer, Joe Camilleri, Vika & Linda Bull, Peter Andre, Jenny Morris and dozens of others. Brett has toured the world supporting acts such as Tina Turner and Robert Palmer and is also a well known identity at international music trade shows such as NAMM and Musikmesse.
In 2008 Brett and his daughter, Sadie, made some short YouTube videos, demonstrating guitar effects pedals, just for fun. The videos proved to be a hit with the global guitar playing fraternity, encouraging the pair to produce more. Some 1500 videos and over 22 million hits later, the “Brett Kingman” channel is now acknowledged as one of the best of its kind in the world.
Brett also produces demonstrations for the ProGuitarShop channel based in Portland, OR, USA, and writes for Tone Report Weekly, an iMag that is fast becoming a reliable reference for guitarists the world over.
Brett lives in Mt Eliza, a seaside suburb of Victoria on Australia’s southern coast with his wife, daughter and dog, ‘Tinka’.
