Brulee’s music ranges from jazz ballads to bouncy indie alt-pop anthems, and from loungy bossa nova to acoustic Americana songwriting.  Respected jazz critic Michael J. West summarized the band as “a unique and clever cross that could be called singer-songwriter jazz.” 

Brulee can play jazz sets at jazz clubs, indie-rock sets at rock clubs, acoustic sets in quiet venues, or shows that blend all these styles.

The first CD: "To a Crisp"

To a Crisp

Brûlée

This band started with a New Year's resolution on January 1, 2006 on the Micronesian island of Yap. After that, it took about two years to assemble the Brûlée family here in Washington DC. So why did it take us four more years to release our first set of songs? We’ve been BUSY, that's why! Since this band started, we have collectively navigated through two weddings, three and a half house purchases, three root canals, four babies, and one PADI open-water certification. We built two guitars, survived four breakups, and traveled to over 50 countries. Somehow, though, we seem to keep meeting for vaguely productive and fully therapeutic rehearsals on Tuesday nights. We even made it to the studio for two day-long sessions. The result is this CD.
