ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Every now and then a new artist comes along who causes you to wonder where he has been all your life. Brett Goldsmith’s voice is both unique and easily soothing. It’s right in the middle and a worthy accompaniment to the acoustic guitar based tales of love, longing and loss. While not quite pop or straight ahead rock, it has folk and indie-rock sensibilities. Recorded solo in his studio in the rural countryside out of Melbourne Australia, he sounds like an awesome combination of Bon Iver, John Mayer, The Fray, and The Wallflowers. A thoroughly modern work, combining intimate, evocative vocals, sweeping panoramic production, exquisite pop melodies and some revealing lyrics. The songs talk to you in a language you understand and the voice singing them seems immediately familiar. There’s something fully formed about the whole package that makes you sense that the artist is comfortable in his own skin and not the product of an urgent need to follow the latest trend or a desperate desire to seem different and to fit in at the same time.”
Brett’s songs feature honest lyrics about love, loss, and tragedy but despite this confronting edge, his work remains determinedly upbeat, reflecting his belief “that every one of us can reinvent ourselves without fear, no matter how great the challenge”.
After writing the songs, playing all the instruments, producing the recording and designing the cover art, one might think Goldsmith deserves a rest – but 2013 is shaping up to be a busy year as he throws himself into an energetic promotional campaign across Australia & trips to the US.
Brett Goldsmith: Melbourne’s ‘Renaissance Man’ (Extended Bio)
The name Brett Goldsmith is a familiar one in many circles of which ‘music’ is only one.
In the fashion world he’s known as a leading photographer whose work is in demand by agencies, hip publications and the elite modeling scene.
In nightlife circles he is known as a leading figure in the evolution of Melbourne’s club culture; part of the Goldsmith family famous for The Underground and Redheads and creator of the first of the uber-cool clubs, the iconic Saratoga.
Despite being a genuine ‘renaissance man’, it is in music that Brett shines. He operates his own recording studio a hidden creative-space above at his farmhouse in the bucolic Victorian countryside.
Goldsmith is far from a ‘Johnny come lately’ to music. From touring as a teenager with Olivia Newton-John, writing, producing and performing on several Top Ten hits with Australian pop band, Chantoozies, to playing bass for Oz-rock legend James Reyne, Goldsmith has earned his stripes. Under a pseudonym he has written and produced music for film and has placed pop songs with other artists.
His honest and often confronting lyrics about love, loss, tragedy, and his belief in the fact that everyone of us can reinvent ourselves without fear, no matter how great the challenge.
“Uplifting and inspiring, honest without judgment; story telling from life experience.
The ballad "My Junkie Friend" pulls no punches as it addresses the issues of substance abuse of all kinds that greatly impact many of our lives at some point through friends or family. Once you hear the song, you get a sense that he has tried to help, probably failed and lost some of his favorite people in the fight”.
Goldsmith is an accomplished and sought after photographer, specializing in fashion and exhibiting street art.
His influences range from Neil Young to Bowie, Little Feat to Earl Travis. His collection of new music and knowledge of the old masters is clear both in his approach to recording, song writing and performing live.
Goldsmith is the nephew of Olivia Newton-John and has written and produced for her forthcoming release. He is the great-grandson of Max Born, German theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner for Quantum Physics.
