Write to Jonathan at email@example.com
Jonathan Bremer is responsible for spotting talents and presenting them in our Tuesday slot for upcoming artists. He was born in 1991 and has been in the spotlight of the Danish jazzscene since he in 2010 was hired by Montmartre as the house bassplayer. Since then his career has taken off. Bremer has released two albums with the band Surf in Stereo (with whom he won the prestigious Ung Jazz Award as a 17-year old) and two records with pianist Niels Lan Doky's trio. He has played with people like Gino Vannelli, David Sanborn and many others. Bremer is experimenting a lot with mixing acoustic music with elements of electronica and dub, which shows the double bass from a whole new angle. In these projects he has worked with artists such as Mike Sheridan, Mikkel Metal and Palle Mikkelborg. He is also the co-founder and co-owner of the jazz record label "Unity Rec" publishing young talented jazz musicians in analouge recordings on vinyl LPs.
