The Breton Sound is what you get when you aggressively smash together musicians from opposite ends of the rock spectrum.
Classic rock, ‘90s alt pop, metal, prog rock, punk, ska, and indie backgrounds emerge from the established musicianship of Jonathan Pretus (vocals/guitar), Stephen Turner (lead guitar), John Bourgeois (drums), and Joe Bourgeois (bass).
Since then, with the help of their sets at both the New Orleans’ Jazz & Heritage and Voodoo Music Festivals, The Breton Sound has garnered a stunning reputation for their live shows. Filled with sing-alongs, climbing up speaker stacks, jumping into the crowd, and universal irreverence, their explosive energy has always been the core of The Breton Sound. Their relentless live shows around the South led the NOLA boys to winning the Louisiana Music Prize last year.
“The Breton Sound” EP, released in July of 2018, was recorded in New Orleans at 1920’s church-turned-recording facility, Esplanade Studios (Eric Clapton, Elvis Costello, Mary J. Blige, The Roots) by the well-known and highly-regarded Producer and Mixer, Jeff Glixman (Black Sabbath, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Kansas).
The Breton Sound have their sights set on proving that rock is alive and well. Swagger, energy, volume, connection, passion, sweat, and noise. That’s what The Breton Sound is all about. They’ll leave the skinny jeans and handclaps to someone else.
