About Jonathan Bree

The work of multi-talented New Zealand musician, producer, and label head Jonathan Bree balances between cheerfully melodic and darkly artistic, and the results have led to numerous successes. He began his musical career in the late '90s with the Brunettes. The chamber pop group signed to Sub Pop, toured the world, and released a run of sunny, witty albums during the 2000s. After that, Bree continued to co-run Lil' Chief Records, worked with Princess Chelsea, and released albums under his own name, beginning in 2013 with The Primrose Path. His solo career is marked by well-planned visual aesthetics and thematically rich albums like 2015's classical music-inspired A Little Night Music and 2020's gently debauched, post-breakup After the Curtains Close. 2023's Pre-Code Hollywood found Bree dipping into the melodramatic sounds of '80s pop with the help of Nile Rodgers.
