People have described Brian Canavan as a) a hopeless romantic b) a hopeless boyfriend c) frightfully moody and d) unusually cheerful for someone who writes such serious songs. If you ever think of running away or falling in love or if you like musicals or dream of having the perfect cup of tea then my songs will resonate with you. I recorded and released YOU'RE AN ELECTRON I'M AN ELECTRON under my own steam in 2008 . I try to put equal effort into lyrics and melody and I hope it sounds like someone in his 30s who just hasn't managed to fit in yet. My music sounds like me meeting Radiohead (when they played loud guitars) meeting Rufus Wainwright meeting The Smiths. The album was described as uplifting and infectious pop (The Star), an absolute gem (Alan Jacques in Live 95fm, Limerick) whilst Hot Press said I was a huge talent that stood out from the crowd.

I also performed on The Last Broadcast, Popscene, Breakfast Express on Spin 1038 (Dublin station) and was artist of the week on the Rick O’Shea Show on 2FM (national station)
