The Sky Was Blue

by Bremner Duthie

If you borrow something, make sure it's the best. Beautiful ugly jazz noise inspired by Rock ‘n roll, Beat poetry, Texas roads and Fifties Italian film soundtracks. Crooning and snarling like Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bremner sings jazz with a fun and complex pop twist, pulling in songs from the Velvet Underground and the Talking Heads. His new album ‘The Sky Was Blue’ features songs made famous by Billy Holiday, Sinatra, Joni Mitchell and Nina Simone, and sounds like Tom Waits and Frank Sinatra fighting over who gets to sing next in some plush velvet lounge in Vegas. He likes to say the new album is like a big old brass bed – there’s a well pounded mattress of bouncy old jazz springs, a colourful quilt of country pop twang, and a huge fluffy feather pillow of 60’s soul

Critics have said, "Fantastic show - outstanding singing. It was utterly memorable."-Andrew Clover of The Sunday Times (UK)
and
"My God, does he ever sing. Bremner's performance is jaw-dropping-my jaw literally dropped."-View Magazine, Hamilton.

Born in New York City, Bremner grew up in a travelling family, first living in NYC, then the north of Scotland and finally Vancouver, BC. His influences are complex – in Scotland he grew up with the sweet sounds of the UK pop Top Ten - from the Bay City Rollers to David Bowie, and in Vancouver he sang in punk rock bands - all those sneak into his jazz recordings.

He just came off the road touring Japan with an 18-piece Big Band, and performing in a Cabaret show in the UK, and is looking forward to being home in Ontario and doing some intimate acoustic concerts.
