I'm Brett - a singer/songwriter. I don't think the world is good or evil...it's both. It's beautiful and twisted, dark and luminous. It's contained chaos in the best and worst way possible.
Hello, you reading this. I hope you are doing well. Just a bit of an update on life, music, and mind clutter going on in my brain.
I haven’t been much of a presence lately on the social stuff, because behind the scenes I’ve been really pushing myself as a songwriter and a producer. I’ve been writing and recording new demos and am really excited about this new chapter in my music. I’ve been pushing the limits to what I’m comfortable doing and talking about. I’m opening myself up to more personal ideas/matters/conflicts/triumphs and whatnot, because I’m ready to be more honest than I’ve ever been before.
Taking a step away from always putting material out, I’ve grown more of an appreciation for creation. I’ve gotten more patient with growing as an artist and taking my time to hone the craft.
Also, I’ve been thinking a lot. About direction with my music, but also about who’s listening. I’m inspired that a bunch of people over the past few years have stuck around and still listen to my music. Still, I think about who really is out there listening. Sometimes someone could be listening to my music, but I would never know it. It comes down to believing in what I put out, and having faith in its impact on others. When people do reach out to me about a track of mine they dig, it truly does inspire me to keep making songs.
Long story short, I ultimately need to create because I honestly wouldn’t be happy if I wasn’t. Making music makes me happy, plain and simple. I need to have an outlet to express myself and my thoughts. What doesn’t make me happy is the pressure I sometimes put on myself. There will be a time when I will have to to sell a certain amount of records/tickets/merchandise, but I shouldn’t let that thought cut my flow of current inspiration.
I’m grateful that I have the opportunity to make music, play shows, and have an outlet for expression. We all deserve to have some form of self-expression put into the world. We all have equally important voices, and equally fascinating and different view points.
In other news, be on the look out for a bunch of fun shows around NYC, Connecticut, and the greater Northeast area this summer.
Anyway, if you’re reading this… thanks. Have a great one :)
