About bree

A 23-YEAR OLD CHRISTIAN CULT CASTAWAY from Harrisburg, Oregon, bree's destiny unfolded in the blink of an eye the first time she plugged into a Gibson Flying V and cranked up a vintage Marshall amp. Growing up in a religious cult—which her father actually led—bree endured years of incomprehensible physical and mental abuse at the hands of her own family, who ultimately cast her into the streets when she was 17-years-old, simply for having a boyfriend. The ensuing years saw bree face homelessness, instability and more than her fair share of discouragement, ultimately finding a lifeline back into the world through music. bree explains, “I don’t think I’d be able to write the songs I do today unless I’d been through that hell. That may or may not be true, but believing it has kept me sane.” She finally settled in Nashville in 2011 and after a year-long campaign of relentless gigging, bree was recognized with the prestigious honor of RAW Nashville's "Musician of the Year," cementing her status as one of America's most exciting new artists. bree's self-titled debut will be released on June 18th on Werewolf Tunes. The 11-track whisky-soaked throw-down was recorded in Nashville and produced by Justin Cortelyou (Taylor Swift, KISS, Ke$ha, Alice Cooper).
