Welcome, Brett Pruneau! So great to catch up. Congrats on the new EP. Tell us all about it Hi there! Thanks so much, it’s great to be able to chat with you about the new EP! ‘The Real Thing’ is my latest project and consists of 5 powerful and moving tracks that really center around a strong theme of 'human connection'. I think the desire for human interaction is something that has really been heightened during the current pandemic … We've all had unexpected experiences throughout this unexpected season- whether its the strengthening of a loving relationship or the unfortunate pining over one that’s been lost, the human condition just craves the things that are “real”. How have you stayed inspired in 2020 during such a difficult year for most? This EP has been my saving grace, to be honest…. the entertainment industry has been devastated by the COVID-19 Crisis, and unfortunately, here we are 9 months later with still no timeline for when we can hope to be singing for live audiences again. As soon as I realized this was going to be our reality for 2020 I immediately began working on ‘The Real Thing’. I couldn’t bare the thought of going such a long and indefinite amount of time without creating and sharing music. I feel so fortunate that I’ve had this outlet for myself, and even more fortunate that I now get to share it with those who will listen. What do you hope listeners feel after hearing your EP for the first time? I hope listeners feel swept away. When you play this EP from top to tail, I hope it just feels like an escape. This music is very emotionally charged and it really covers a lot of ground… there are some songs that will make you smile and reminisce and some that are just downright devastating, but again… these are the aspects of life that are 'real’. Life comes with Happiness and Life comes with Hurt, there’s something oddly comforting to know that this is at least one thing we can all agree on. I know it may be hard to choose, but do you have a favorite song on the EP? If so, why? I really love ‘Sun & Moon’ - I feel this track really captures who I am as an artist. It is a soaring power ballad that really just goes for it. The production is so beautiful as well- my producer, Brian McGrane, is a tremendous talent and was a dream to collaborate with while we were arranging this track. I have a really beautiful music video coming for Sun & Moon later this month.
