“He can sing, dance and act most people into a corner” – The Sydney Morning Herald.

I am thrilled to make my debut singing album in Melbourne with one of Australia’s leading music producer, Chong Lim AM. As Maestro Lim is the music director for Olivia Newton John AC OBE, Kylie Minogue AO OBE, John Farnham AO and David Campbell this is an exciting prospect. Recording is scheduled with an orchestra in January 2020. The album will be ready for release in April 2020.

Since starting my career with Opera Australia at the age of eight, my life has been a pursuit of artistic excellence. Graduating with Honours from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 2009, I have achieved an International career as an actor and singer.

My work acknowledges classical and contemporary music, and I strive to make this classical-crossover genre accessible, particularly to young people. Creating my album with Maestro Lim will enable me to fulfil this ambition.

I am seeking support in raising funds towards my goal. Visit my website www.brettbrown.com.au/album to read letters of recommendation from Craig Hassall AM, CEO Royal Albert Hall; Dr William Clark OAM, Director of Music; Patricia Oertel, creator of Human Nature; Philip Parr, Director; and the late Dame Gillian Lynne DBE.
