Brian Newman has earned his stripes as a man about town. Having honed his craft at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, this Cleveland native has routinely performed standards and original compositions as a bandleader at New York City institutions such as Feinstein’s, Duane Park, Rose Bar at the Gramercy Park Hotel and The Oak Room.
One of the most reputable and dynamic trumpeters in the business, Brian is perhaps best known as Lady Gaga’s go-to jazz player, having performed with her both in the studio and for ABC’s A Very Gaga Thanksgiving, NBC’s Today Show, BBC Radio 1′s Big Weekend and MTV’s Video Music Awards. Brian has similarly shared the stage with a diverse array of performers across multiple genres, highlighted by notable appearances with Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Jr., Mark Murphy, Dierks Bentley and Megan Hilty.
Brian’s throwback style also has Hollywood calling with film and television performances including HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and the feature film, Friends with Kids, while his radio presence has yielded him official trumpet player status on BBC’s The Greg James Show. Also a popular choice for a diverse array of major brands including Tiffany & Co., Forbes, Veuve Clicquot, Lacoste & Jack Daniel’s, Brian is regularly called upon for high-profile special event performances, thereby rounding out his profile as the complete entertainer.
