Jacques Brautbar combines traditional orchestral colors with the palates of electronic and ethereal sonic art.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Jacques began his professional music career at the age of fifteen as a founder, guitar player, arranger and songwriter for Sony recording artist Phantomplanet. While with Phantomplanet, Jacques collaborated on the band's three singles, "Lonely Day," "Big Brat," and the theme song to the hit show The O.C, "California." After a decade with the band, Jacques signed with Sony/Atv publishing and produced hundreds of songs spanning pop, hip-hop and rock genres. It was during this time that he recognized a desire within to write music for visual story telling. His immersion in both popular and classical aspects of music gives Jacques the distinct position to see composition from a perspective not often viewed by traditional classical musicians.
