Retz (often stylized RETZ) cites as main artistic influences such legends as the Rolling Stones, BB-King, the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Paul Carrack, Phil Collins. Bill Haley, Van Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, and Bruce Springsteen. His characteristic vocal tone has elements of both Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison, and it stands out even against the background of expert guitar work and marvelous songwriting.
Speaking of the themes of his new single, Retz writes, “Whether it's the love of a man to a woman he's so drawn to, a mother letting go of her son for so many years, or simply missing a loved one, this song 'Sweet Memories' speaks for itself.”
Retz puts his enjoyment of music before other related concerns. “I am an independent artist,” he writes. “The most important thing for me is to always keep it fun to create music. Thereafter, it will be really fun if people like what I create.”
Retz was born in 1956 growing up with rock, soul, blues and country music. He joined his first publicly noted band in the late sixties. He played rock music with Bobcat's Rock Show in Gothenberg, and after an extended hiatus recorded an EP called “Lightning”
