Brett Milan Gajda blends the eclecticism of his influences into a sound perhaps best described as ‘Highly Melodic, Emotionally Soaked, Singer/Songwriter, Pop/Rock/Folk’. His debut album, Twenty Love, has been described as “that rarity among first albums: fully realized, confidently sung and played, and a pleasure to listen to”.

Hailing from Toronto, Brett became a San Francisco resident almost eight years ago. His goal is for his songs to crawl inside of the listener, and awaken the emotions within. “I want to encourage people to feel, to think, and to question. What? Whatever a song brings up in them.” One fan recently said, “Brett's songs come from the heart and in turn make me look into my own. I find myself listening to his music over and over, and never getting tired of the lyrics. Twenty Love soothes my soul and lifts my spirits about that thing they call love.”

Build around the strength and passion of his voice and acoustic guitar, Twenty Love is a fully textured experience, incorporating deftly placed harmonies, varied instrumentation, and a Beatles-esque production.

Hailing from Toronto (well Mississauga, actually), Brett became a San Francisco resident almost eight years ago. He began singing at a very young age, and ever since it has been truth for him. He played in bands from his late teens to early twenties, and then made a move to San Francisco. Though he never stopped playing behind closed doors and around campfires globally, songwriting took a backseat to other pursuits (travel, writing, painting SF red) until the Summer 2001, when the muse returned.
