who’s THAT?


Brett Gleason is a piano-based alternative songwriter from New York. 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 & writing reflect this.

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 composition degree from the New School University in NYC.

His self-titled debut albums debuted in the Top 100 of the iTunes Alternative Charts with videos reaching number #1 on MTV Logo’s ‘The Click List’. He is currently preparing to release the lead single to his 3rd album called 'The Strong & The Silent' - a call for radical vulnerability in the face of digital isolation.
