Born in New Plymouth (New Zealand) in 1982, Fraser Bremner is the youngest of the musically renown Bremner family. He is son of Trevor & Betty Bremner, a couple known internationally for their performing as a duo (with Trevor being a champion cornetist, and Betty accompanying him on piano). His brothers include David Bremner (Principal Trombone - New Zealand Symphony Orchestra) and Mark Bremner (Sub-Principal Trumpet - Queensland Symphony Orchestra).

Fraser grew up in the New Plymouth music scene before moving to Christchurch to join the internationally acclaimed, New Zealand Army Band. After 3 years with the band, he moved to Wellington to study orchestral percussion and composition at the New Zealand School of Music. During this time, he performed with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Wellington (formally known as Vector Wellington Orchestra) and the Central Band of the Royal New Zealand Air Force.

Fraser currently resides back in his hometown of New Plymouth, where he works for his family business, sshhmute (creator of some of the world’s best brass practice mutes) as well as session work as a drummer/percussionist and as a composer/arranger of music.

“Fraser Bremner brings the visceral awareness of a consummate performer to his compositions, and the analytical brain of a skilled composer to his performance - an enviable all around talent.” — Gareth Farr
