Jonathan Bree is a musician from New Zealand, known for melodic compositions where he croons about modern life and love, over string parts that slide precariously between notes and dulcitones chimes. The end result is a musical palette one could describe as dark Disney.
His live shows have gained him a cult following across the world. Masked band members in pioneering clothing are set against a backdrop of cinematic projections created specifically for each song.
His single ‘Waiting on the Moment’ is a break-up song you can dance to. It expresses the pain of revisiting places where a love you once knew had significance. In this case, a karaoke bar. Rather than presented within a tearjerker ballad, the music gives another angle, one of celebration. There is an optimism in moving on, confronting and acting on your sense of loss.
Bree’s 4th studio album, After The Curtains Close, is out now.
