Musician. Played for many performers,Teddy Pendergrass, Dionne Warwick, Billy Paul, Jerry Butler and many others.
He is an avid bass guitar player who has performed with some of the biggest names in music history, ranging from Chubby Checker, James Ingram, Brian McKnight, Chaka Khan, Billy Paul, Grover Washington Jr., Celine Dion, Janet Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, Angela Bofill, Gerald Levert, Teddy Pendergrass and Usher, to name a few. He has the deepest voice imaginable... Honestly, he can go just as low (if not lower) than Barry White, which has been proven to be great for doing voiceovers and commercials. He can cold read a script easily and give it enough flair to make it truly noticeable. He can take your message, record it to music (you tell him what style you want and what type of vocalist you want to sing your tune) and send it online with either a mp3 song attachment or a mp4 music video. This new and unique concept is called "Brett Jolly's Melodygrams". Also he can produce musical demos and voiceovers for singers and advertisers over the phone and send them online via mp3 format.
