Passionately authentic rebellious Irish music from the heart of an actual Irishman.

Biography

Originally from County Donegal on the North-West coast of Ireland, Brendan moved to the USA in 1999 to pursue his music. Since then his career has flourished with the release of 5 albums including the hugely successful “Atlantic Breeze” and the glorious “Last Set of the Night” which was voted No.12 Album of The Year by Paddy Rock Radio listeners. As an opening act for names like Chuck Berry, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Lorrie Morgan, Sting and many others, Brendan has honed his craft from the tough pubs and clubs of Ireland to some of the largest venues here in the USA including three annual appearances singing The Star Spangled Banner for over 44,000 at Wrigley Field in Chicago. In 2009 Brendan headlined the inaugural Kentuckiana Celtic Fest, the 15th annual Manhattan Irish Festival, opened for Scythian at Chicago's famous Abbey Pub and many more notable events. Brendan's passionate brand of foot-stomping, rebellious Irish music, accompanied by his uniquely powerful renditions of Ireland’s most haunting ballads will surely add a stylish, professional and authentic presence to any event.
