    Brett Bass, the founder and front man of Grandpa’s Cough Medicine, started his new band Brett Bass and Melted Plectrum in 2018. Tired of the outlaw image from his old band, he decided to move in a new direction and focus on a bluegrass sound for his music. 

    Throughout his career, he has taken first prize at the 2015 RockyGrass flat-picking guitar contest and shared the stage with the likes of Jim Lauderdale, Steep Canyon Rangers, Yonder String Mountain Band, and Larry Keel. Strongly influenced by the music from the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee, Bass brings his own style to a family-friendly, high-energy bluegrass sound.
