GLITTER: How would you describe your sound?

BRETT: I would describe my sound as a nostalgic, R&B, pop-dance fusion.

 

GLITTER: What does being an artist mean to you?

BRETT: I feel that to be an artist, is to be closest to God. To be able to pull inspiration from something and create from it is almost a religious experience. It’s sacred, important and sensitive and I’m lucky to be a part of it. Or at least attempt to be :).

GLITTER: What can you tell us about the upcoming Netflix series, On My Block? Who do you play?

BRETT: On My Block is a brand-new series coming to Netflix on March 16th about a group of teenagers entering high school in South Central LA. When one of the “Core 4” gets involved in a gang called the Santos, the others scramble on an adventure to save their friend. I play Jamal Turner, an over the top nerd who can’t keep a secret, but is surrounded by secrets!

 

GLITTER: Will we see an EP from you soon?

BRETT: Absolutely. Or two. Time will tell! 😉
