AP: Brett Detar Interview


My buddy Brett Detar (ex-The Juliana Theory) is giving away his debut solo album for free on the interwebs. I conducted his first solo interview recently, for Alternative Press, which you may read by clicking HERE. Fans of early 2000s emo-rock and traditional country / bluegrass / roots music should take note in equal measure.

Man did I love Juliana Theory back in the day! I'm downloading this album. I'd like to see what he's up to these days.
