Jonathan Bree's third album Sleepwalking has a heavy orchestrated element featuring real string players, horns, celeste and soprano vocals. Jonathan's arrangements draw distinct influence from orchestral pop of a bygone era (think Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra), but many of the songs dip in and out of the avant-garde in a way that is also distinctly modern.
Jonathan Bree is a composer, producer, songwriter and singer from Auckland New Zealand. When he is not producing and performing with Princess Chelsea , running his indie label Lil' Chief Records (15 years of bedroom pop and 50 releases strong), or directing his own masked music videos - he is driving himself mad by trying to achieve Brian Wilson levels of sonic bliss in his West Auckland home studio.
Until recently a fairly well kept New Zealand secret, Jonathan's music has infiltrated the laptop speakers of millions of listeners around the world thanks to break out hit You're So Cool.
