Biography

Brennan Finlay has spent the past four years playing around southern Ontario. The first year was a collaboration of four friends who wanted to express their musical identities.

The following year came a changing wind. His first band, "Harverd" broke up after artistic differences. Brennan started developing his own sound. In 2004 he began recording his first EP, entitled "Love". Brennan paired up with Ryan Lenssen (The Most Serene Republic) to produce and record his debut CD. The release of "Love" came in February 2005 with great success. The release was followed up with airplay on CBC Radio Ones Saturday indie hour, Bandwidth.

After a year that was full of shows and exposer Brennan began preparing for his second EP. He found refuge in the country side to record his second CD. "Hello..." was comprised of five songs, two that were re-recorded off of "Love".

Over the past two years Brennan Finlay and The Dogfight have been supporting acts like The Junction, Cain and Abel, Five Blank Pages, Sleep The Season, and Everlea.

After almost a full year of performing and pushing "Hello..." Brennan has begun recording on his third CD.

Lyrics

Educated Men

Written By: B. Finlay

She takes a lit cigar and pantyhose
And lights up when she knows we're cold
Cause she knows that she could make
A Quilt that would keep us safe
From those cold November nights
And even though the phone might ring
She'll keep the fire glowin' burnin'
Think...

When she tells us we will grow up into...

Educated men
Who both will take our stand
On subjects that will seem so
Alien

He takes his lit cigar and thumbs a note
On a piano build sometime ago
And even though the keys might stick
He still thinks that they might hit
The strings that are wound so tight

That remind of a time when he and his friends were just...

Educated Men
Who once took their stand
On subjects that did seem so
Alien...

Alien, Alien, Alien...

Educated Men
Who once took their stand
On subjects that did seem so

Educated men
Who both will take our stand
On subjects that will seem so
Alien...

Alien, Alien, Alien

Take A Sip

Written By: B. Finlay

Take a sip
Roll again
We don't know where we first begin

Take your time
Now roll your eyes
We'll hope it ends up good in the end

Please don't expect to cry
out of your...

Please don't expect to cry
out of your...

Hazel eyes that look back at me
When we smile about old times
When we use to...

When we use to...

Take a sip
Roll again
We don't know where we first begin

Take your time
Now roll your eyes
We'll hope it ends up good in the end

Take a sip
Roll again
We don't know where we first begin
