From Sonic Retro
(Redirected from Bentley Jones)
Lee Brotherton is a music artist who created and works under the Remix Factory, but is now independently working under his new alias, Bentley Jones. He first dabbled with the music of the Sonic the Hedgehog series as an amateur remixer under the name "LeeBro." He then worked with Remix Factory from 2004 to 2007, working on music for Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic Rivals and most notably the 2006 game Sonic the Hedgehog, where he provided the vocals to "Dreams of an Absolution," the theme of Silver the Hedgehog.
In November 2007, Brotherton began segregating himself from the Remix Factory to concentrate on his own work as an artist under the pseudonym Bentley Jones. As this new alias, he was invited to remix and guest star on "Open Your Heart," originally featured in the video-game Sonic Adventure. Bentley's remix appears on the 2008 album True Blue: The Best of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Jones is known for being a fan of Japanese megastar Ayumi Hamasaki. Not only did he cover her song 'Depend on You' entirely in Japanese, but he rewrote it into English as a new track called Depend on Me. These two covers resulted in lots of attention from J-pop and Ayumi Hamasaki fans, the large majority of which was very positive. In May 2008, Jones guest vocaled and remixed Hamasaki's previously #1-single 'STEP you' as a special promotion for Avex Trax in Japan.
