Brendan is a 20 year old singer/songwriter who has been learning his trade for the past 5 years having worked with producers and writers for the likes of ‘Jessie J’, ‘Emeli Sande’, ‘Jesse Glynne’, ‘Lilly Allen’, ‘Ed Sheeran’, ‘Westlife’, ‘Busted’ and ‘Echo and the Bunnymen’. Having moved to London 18 months ago, Brendan has played the London circuit of pubs, bars and clubs including ‘The Bedford’, ‘The Garage’ and ‘Spice of Life’ and his demos have already received airplay across the BBC and a few indie radio stations. One of his promoters at HotVox London has been quoted as saying: “He offers a wide variety of thoughtful and well written original music that sparks emotion in the audience” as well as “Everything he does is believable and makes you really want to listen to what he is saying.”
When he’s not playing music, you’ll find Brendan on the sports field playing rugby which he has previously played at an international level... But that’s another story!
Brendan’s influences include James Taylor, Damien Rice, Ed Sheeran and John Mayer . He has taken inspiration from classic singer/songwriters like this and developed his own sound which is a fusion of country and acoustic pop with clear celtic influences. This is his USP. The EP was recorded and produced in Italy with Patrizio Maria D’Artista who Brendan met at a songwriting camp in Germany. They clicked straight away and decided to work together, resulting in 5 tracks which range from pure country to radio friendly pop and intense, powerful ballads with D’Artista’s classical arrangements being evident.
