About Brett

Brett Perkins

Since The Sneaks days, my life has continued to be centered in music, with multiple album releases, film and tv song placements and 33 countries toured so far (and a few earlier sidetrips along the way, including a season dancing on Soul Train, appearing on Love Connection, and a brief stint in fashion and photo modeling).

In 1991 I started vounteering for the National Academy of Songwriters, then the largest non-profit in the US, and by 1996 was the C.E.O., where I got to meet and work representing the creative rights of many of my musical heroes including Burt Bacharach, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Graham Nash, Randy Newman, Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder.

In 1997 I headed out again as a full time performing songwriter, based in Copenhagen, Denmark, and have released 3 albums and three additional singles, all of which have had active airplay in various European countries, where I also co-write frequently with younger artists, achieving my first Top 10 in Denmark two years back with debut artist Mads Langers', 'Breaking News', on Copenhagen Records. A new album, 'Red Light, Green Light, Go', is scheduled for release lin January 2009. Further info and free downloads of the latest singles are available. My other passion and major work is leading the Listening Room International Songwriter Retreats, held annually in several countries since 2002.

Given all the travels, great musicians and gigs since, I still hold those years with The Sneaks to be my greatest band experience, which I'll always cherish, along with the original team of Rob, Pat and Mercibeat.
