Welcome to my Spotify page. I hope you like the music. Singing is all I ever wanted to do, and it is almost my first memory.
In New York, when I was six, walking home from school, Mom would hear me coming as I sang my way down the street. I started with Punk, made a leap to Opera, and sang Opera till my first loves: Music Theatre, Cabaret and Jazz, pulled me away. I’ve toured the world singing stadiums in Tokyo, State Theatres in Germany, atelier house concerts in Paris, ex-Soviet theatres in Mongolia, and even crawled onto table-top stages in bars along the north shore of Lake Superior. I loved them all. My first recording, ‘Bremner Sings Kurt Weill’, was devoted to my own personal obsession, the extraordinary songs of Kurt Weill, which stretch from the streets of 1920's Berlin to the dazzling lights of Broadway. My second album, ‘The Sky Was Blue’, asked the question "What is a jazz standard?" As an answer, I created swinging arrangements of songs I loved, from Velvet Underground, Talking Heads, Joni Mitchell and put them beside traditional jazz standards. My next recording, ‘'33(a kabarett)’, is an exploration of musical, emotional, sexual and political inspirations behind the idea of Cabaret, with songs by Weill, Hollaender, Noel Coward and Sondheim. My latest recording is a return to the songs of Kurt Weill, but this time with a jazz trio, with new arrangements by Scotland's Artist of the Year, pianist David Patrick. Slow, sultry, dark and intense.
