article imageInterview with rock singer Bree: 'All American Girl' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jun 8, 2013 in Entertainment
On June 6, 2013, I interviewed singer-songwriter Bree, where she opened up about her music and her new song “All American Girl.”
“The title is very tongue-in-cheek. One night, I was having drinks with David, my drummer, and I was really down thinking about my late mother who died when I was six from swallowing a needle and all the religious things I went through growing up in a cult in Oregon and the drugs and homelessness that followed after they kicked me out at seventeen. David said, 'I don’t know Bree, you sound like a fairly average all American girl to me.' It made me laugh and it stuck in my head,” she said.
On her musical style, she remarked, “It’s hard driving rock and roll from a dark perspective sweetened with a dose of melody, but some people think I’m retro because we utilize an upright bass. I’m not retro and I like to think that I’ve created my own slice of the rock and roll pie for my era.”
She noted that she has very strong musical influences from the 1950s era until present, which include Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Patsy Cline, The Beatles, The Who, David Bowie (with Ronson), New York Dolls, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick and Green Day. “I don’t take a shower without my iPhone dock turned up full blast,” she said.
Regarding her future plans, she shared, “Promoting our debut CD 'All American Girl' is our main priority at the moment. It was produced by is Justin Cortelyou. He’s the exclusive engineer for Bob Ezrin. Justin recorded the eleven songs on the CD over the course of a year when he was between sessions with Bob and it was an incredible experience. He captured our rawness in the studio and I want as many people as possible to hear it. I love the road and can’t wait to tour.”
Bree listed Bruno Mars and Nate Ruess as her dream male duet choices in music. “I like Bruno Mars because his sense of melody is timeless and Nate Ruess because his duet with Pink on 'Just Give Me A Reason' is fantastic,” she said.
Bree revealed that her plans for the near future include performing live in New York City. “It is one of my favorite places on the planet. If the music scene hadn't been so vibrant in Nashville, I would have relocated to New York City,” she acknowledged.
Bree concluded, “My mission in life is twofold: music is my lifelong passion and I write, perform or record seven days a week and will continue to do so until I take my last breath. Many times music has been the only thing that has kept me sane.”
