Music Discovery: Brett Orr

As I first put on Brett Orr I absolutely had no idea what to expect. Sometimes when people get a hold of you to review their music it can take you a little while to actually take the gander over for that first listen. His first song on his Facebook had me turning the volume up to 50 on the old Bose. Once his funky soulful voice hit at the 47-second mark in “Becoming a Man” you know he has what it takes to make it in the music industry.

Reading on about the Australia native you learn that he does it all from playing the drums and piano down to the actual production on his debut album Foundations. This independent Australian artist has a very unique sound for being so full of soul. One way to describe his music would be to call it simply beautiful or you could say it is some funked-out soul with R&B and Electronica elements. You can call it whatever you want to after you take that first listen.
