Brett Gleason Biography
From Brooklyn, NY by way of Long Island, Brett Gleason’s early life was hampered by a severe speech impediment, leading to a solitary childhood immersed in the arts. His struggle to communicate led to a mastery of multiple instruments and a fiction degree from the New School University in NYC. Both an out gay artist and bi-polar sufferer, Gleason knows what it’s like to live a life of intensity outside the mainstream and his music reflects this.
Created with a vow to play all instruments and self-produce every detail, Brett’s operatic work is both aggressive and vulnerable, abrasive yet beautiful with an emphasis on his classical piano and literary background. His first full length record is coming out May 6th, 2014.
