A self-described late bloomer, Brett Altman didn’t sing publicly until the age of 20. Just 21 months later, he performed in front of a crowd of 17,000 at Penn State University for a talent competition, which he won. He has since won Indie Nation’s Viral Music Competition, and released his first single, “Come Find Me”, through Sony Music’s The Orchard. His follow up single, “Vacancy Signs”, described by PopMatters as a “smooth and summery slice of pop,” highlights Altman’s “sweet, soulful croon”.
Since moving to Hoboken in 2015, Altman has established himself in the Tri-State area music scene through gigs at The Bitter End NYC, PIANOS, The Bowery Electric, and other local venues. His upbeat music is a fusion of pop, rock, and soul, with songwriting that illuminates moments of everyday life. His biggest musical influences are John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Ed Sheeran, and Dave Matthews Band.
With his duo partner, Max Perkins, Altman is set to release a series of singles leading up to his first EP.
