Brett Gleason is a piano-based alternative songwriter from Brooklyn NY who effortlessly fuses the intimacy of a singer-songwriter with the epic sounds of arena rock.
His early life was complicated by a severe speech impediment, leading to a solitary childhood spent immersed in the arts. This communication impairment would lead to a mastery of multiple instruments and a composition degree from the New School.
An outspoken bipolar advocate and out gay artist, Gleason knows what it’s like to live an intense life outside the mainstream. This perspective bleeds directly into his music, which serves as a conduit for his experiences.
Gleason’s career has been taking off over the past few years; his first two albums debuted in the Top 100 of the Alternative Charts with videos reaching the number-one spot on MTV Logo’s “The Click List.”
His latest single, “Second Guess,” plays out the dynamics of facing our harshest critic - ourselves. The track urges listeners to trust their intuition with upbeat choruses to buoy the bruising grooves of the verses. Gleason wrote “Second Guess” after blaming himself for a flubbed social interaction to challenge his self-negating perspective.
‘I write to resolve internal conflict and accept the paradox of being human, I hope ‘Second Guess’ gives listeners confidence despite our doubts and complexities’
