"You deserve to earn a living in this business," Randy Newman said to Cleveland born singer-songwriter Brett Fromson upon hearing him play. Brett's lyric-driven songs speak to his loyal, grass roots following, and captivate everyone who comes across them.
In 2014, Brett graduated from the prestigious Popular Music Program at USC Thornton School of Music. There, he was lucky enough to work with some of his heroes and musical legends including Glenn Frey, Randy Newman, John Fogerty, Steve Miller, Noel Stookey, David Foster, and Lamont Dozier.
Brett's debut release, "Hearbeat Like A Train" was released early to a select few at the USC Thornton School Charles Dickens Dinner, whereupon Brett became the first recipient of the Glenn Frey Scholarship. The record's public release date was January 1, 2014. Glenn is deeply missed, and remains an inspiration for Brett as he continues down his path as a songwriter and troubadour.
A multi-instrumentalist, Brett has performed extensively all around the country. Some of Brett's notable experiences include performing at The Woody Guthrie Centennial Celebration at USC's Bovard Auditorium, and participating in the 2012 International Folk Alliance Conference, a guest of The Leavitt Pavilions.
Lately, Brett is devoting the majority of his time to collaborating with his music partner and friend Jimmy Villaflor. The two met at USC and have been working together since 2011. Brett is currently producing Jimmy’s debut album “Wax & Wane”, due out in Fall of 2017. As a duo, they frequently perform in the Los Angeles area, as well as their hometowns of Cleveland and Chicago respectively. In the Summer of 2016, they embarked on a national tour, performing in 5 states. They also appeared together on the television show “Glee” in its final season.
“Heartbeat Like A Train” can be found anywhere music is sold or streamed (Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Amazon). He can be contacted for booking at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brett currently resides in Los Angeles.
