April 18, 2017 – Los Angeles, CA – Known by many as a Los Angeles indie artist extraordinaire, D’Breeon has been playing music ever since he could stand. He started playing the piano and saxophone at six years old. The son of a concert pianist, in college he studied under renowned bassist Richard Davis while also composing his own music with his band “The Dans”. After performing extensively at venues near the University of Wisconsin, he was noticed by Prince for being that singing saxophonist. Later NBC news would interview D’BREEON as he donated 100% of the royalties from the single “Do You” to the Leukemia Foundation via “TheMadScene” record company. Subsequently D’Breeon was invited up to Paisley Park to record his new single, “Call Her”. D’BREEON returned to UW-Madison and graduated as an electrical and computer engineer and began working as a sound producer and engineer.
Soon after, he moved to Los Angeles to focus entirely on his solo career where he performed at venues including the Sidewalk Cafe in Santa Monica, and at the Roxy and Gaylord in Beverly Hills. During this time, he also worked with a variety of artists and record labels including Warner Chapel, DTA Records, Altar Records, Masonic Music, Quick Silver, and Big Sound Records. He also worked as an audio engineer for Black Hole Studio. It was during this time that he learned the finer details about crafting arrangements that break conventions and truly captivate listeners.
In 1999 D’Breeon released his first album “Do It” featuring the hit single “Call Her” where this album has attracted over 13 million plays on MYSPACE and other social media outlets. Not bad for an Indie artist. D’BREEON made the Grammy ballot.
The next major release was in 2005 when D’BREEON released his first double album “Fantasy”. This album has two complete cd’s. One Jazz Album and one R&B Album. This double packed album really helped to increase the demand for D’BREEON in concerts, on the radio, on air interviews, as well as co – productions with Capital Records, Black Hole Recording Studios, Big Noise and many others. D’BREEON continued to donate portions from shows to various charities (Breast Cancer, St Jude, etc.)
In 2008 he released his next album “The Feel of You”, followed by “The Art of Pleasure” in 2010, and “Hot” in 2011, “Valentine” 2015. Building on the momentum of his previous successes, recent two Grammy nominations in his previous release “World” 2015.
This latest 2017 release “Rose Colored Lenses” is indicative of his unique style of lyrical composition and new school saxophone. An idyllic blend of old and new, his music has a special way of captivating listeners and providing a fresh take on R&B conventions. His work as a studio engineer is apparent in his finely tuned compositions that are always polished and never stay in one place for too long.
For some, “Rose Colored Lenses” represents a new school form of R&B which is as experimental as it is traditional, blending old and new in such seamless fashion that you almost wonder why this has not been done before. Others think there is a sub message about America’s true art form helping America in cyber security – things aren’t as though they seem. Each finely crafted melody is meticulously presented and made to hit that sweet spot of R&B where sincerity meets edginess. Recorded using Logic Hollywood Headliner, Inc Studio. One song called “Nothing” was recorded at Black Hole Studio using Pro Tools with Platinum Producer Kenny McCloud. The album is a truly remarkable achievement in sound engineering and unique composition. “Rose Colored Lenses” is currently available on CD Baby, iTunes and D’Breeon’s official website.
Over the next six months, look for D’Breeon to tour in the Los Angeles San Fernando Valley starting April 16th 2017 at Tuccio’s in Woodland Hills, Ca., as well as releasing, some of his more than 40 songs written in the past two years.
