Experience the unique sound of singer songwriter Steve Hartmann

Saturday, March 9, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON—Brandon Music will present the compelling  and enigmatic  singer-songwriter, Steve Hartmann from Jericho, Saturday, March 9. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Hartmann majored in piano and double majored in stage performance and song writing, Hartmann is known for his unique sound, pristine vocals and engaging stage presence that draws you in and leaves you stunned.

Born in Dalat, Vietnam, towards the end of the Vietnam War, Hartmann was adopted at the age of 5 months. He struggled to find a sense of belonging until he found music at the age of 12. He’s a self taught guitarist player and a classically trained pianist.

He started the journey of finding his “sound” when he met his best friend and bassist, Drew Breder, at age 18. Using various vocal effects and looper pedals, his sound has grown to be readily identifiable as his own.

Having opened for major label acts like Jeffrey Gaines, Chris Carrabba and Reeve Carney,  and won several singer-songwriter contests, Hartmann’s dynamic vocal range, lyrically driven tunes and captivating stage presence sets him apart.

Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional and Twin Forks said, “Steve’s vocals are pristine.”

The incomparable Livingstone Taylor, who taught Hartmann at Berklee College, said, “I was blown away speechless.”

The powerful  American  singer songwriter and guitarist Jeffrey Gaines commented, “ If you ever get a chance to see him live, take it. You won’t regret it.”

This event is a part of Vermont Arts 2019, celebrating arts in Vermont.
