Brett Gleason/Jonathan Sibrava/Tenshi/Luke and Seth @ The Space 7/29

Brooklyn based electro rock pianist Brett Gleason will be performing at The Space as part of their "Summer Singer/Songwriter Series" so get down to Hamden to get your ears filled with his musical goodness!

From Brett's Bio:

Combining the intimacy of a piano based singer-songwriter with dark
electronics and jazz harmonics: Brett Gleason’s music has been called
‘revolutionary’ and garnered comparisons to diverse artists like Trent
Reznor, Tori Amos & Dave Gahan.

From Brooklyn, NY by way of Long Island, Brett’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 unique music makes this evident.

In early 2010, he self released ‘The Dissonance’ with the ‘I Am Not’
video climbing to the top of MTV Logo’s ‘The Click List’ for 20 weeks.
Followed by the controlled chaos of ‘Futile & Fooled’ in 2011, Brett
returned to the studio, not to emerge until early 2012 as the creator
of ‘Destruction‘.

Created with a vow to play all instruments and self-produce every
detail, his latest record, ‘The Thawing‘ is an operatic set of new
tracks both aggressive and vulnerable, abrasive yet beautiful. With an
emphasis on a classical piano background and the addition of strings,
this sophisticated sophomore effort is a seamless development of Brett
Gleason’s unique, layered sound.

I love me some Brett Gleason! His music makes me want to buy a loaf of bread and a stick of brie and sit in a dark room (in a good way)
