Bree

Retail Manager - N

"Where words fail, music speaks." - Hans Christian Anderson

About Me

She is a multi-instrumentalist artist who performs cover songs and writes her own music. Her main instruments include guitar, ukulele, and voice.

Bree grew up in a family of musicians and showed interest in playing music at a young age. She taught herself piano and ukulele around the age of six, and played percussion for middle school band. 
Throughout high school, she took several band classes and learned multiple instruments. Among these were: Alto Saxophone, Flute, Trombone, Tenor Saxophone, and Guitar. By the time she graduated high school, she knew how to play over ten different instruments total. 
After high school, she continued her education at a community college. She gained more knowledge about instruments (& music in general) and learned music sales working for a music store beginning in 2013.
Bree has performed several solo gigs, collaborative shows, and sang with different bands. Shows ranging from small house charities to playing at large outdoor music festivals (ex: Wild Wild Fest opening for the band We Came As Romans in Silverado, CA). 
In early 2014 she joined an all-girl rock band, Raise The Ashes, as the lead vocalist. They played original music and occasionally a few cover songs, including cover songs by Paramore and Bring Me the Horizon. Raise The Ashes officially disbanded later that year due to personal circumstances.
Bree started performing solo shows more frequently beginning early 2016. She mainly performs in Pomona, Pasadena, and the Los Angeles/Hollywood areas. 
 
Feel free to ask her about her music next time you come in to the store!

Bree was the assistant manager of the Gard's Music stores and worked for them from 2013-2018. You may have seen her before Gard's Music became part of the Music & Arts family! She is so excited to grow with us as manager!
