Her Legacy (2009)

This project quickly turned into a concept album, telling the story of a persons life in chronological order. Ideally the album would be listened to in sequence. However, the songs tend to stand on their own as well.

RPM 2010 (2010)

For this album I have taken a different approach and decided to do a compilation album which contains songs written solely by me and other songs co-written with other musicians. This has been a wonderful honor for me and am delighted with the end result of these songs. The other writers include: Jordan Coaker (The Dish Who Cracked), Ashley W. Clarke (Time For Me To Change, Fred Vey (Mom and Dad), Brandon Sullivan (Just Give It Time) and Andrew Carlton Lightfoot (Soaring Away). Also, a very special thanks to Christine Young for the vocals on "What Has Changed?" and Crystal Vey for her vocals on "Please Don't Go" and "I Had A Dream". I should also note that the CD Jacket cover is created by myself (Brett Vey) and I have drawn an individual picture for each cd jacket.

BIOGRAPHY

Brett Vey has been surrounded with music all his life. His grandmother being a popular fiddle player and father a singer/songwriter it only seemed natural that he would follow their musical footsteps. Brett prefers to be known as a musican and not connected to just one particular style of music... after all as he often says "Music is Music". Brett holds a bachelor of music degree from Memorial University's School of Music in Newfoundland (focus on Guitar) and is into much songwriting, arranging and performing. Brett has both written and co-written many songs some of which will be rotated on this site as often as possible. In terms of arranging Brett plays many instruments such as Guitar, Bass, percussion, banjo, mandolin, violin and Piano, and spends much time specifically focusing on arranging styles for strings, piano and solo guitar. Currently Brett is owner/operator of The MusicBox which is a teaching studio (private lessons) and a Recording Studio (can be reached at 744-2080). He has appeared on multiple albums as a session player and has performed worked with many artists such as The Once, Redline, Chiquitita, Jimmy Lee Howard, Judith Morrissey, Ian Foster, Mun Jazz Band, Allan Locke, Kurt Moyst, Sean Panting, Irish Descendants, etc... Some highlight shows include, Rising Tide Theatre for a summer, MIA Awards Showcase with the Ian Foster Band, Out of the Fog with Judith Morrisey and the multiple festivals with The Vey's.
