An Australian Folk-Rock/Roots artist currently based in Brisbane, Brendan the Bard draws stories from life and weaves them into a rich musical tapestry. From roaring drinking anthems to heart-splintering ballads to body-swaying shanties, he delivers vulnerable songs that aim to speak to the core of his human experience. As his moniker suggests, Brendan is a journeyman wordsmith, and his craft has been tempered over the years by busking and performing gigs to earn an honest living.
Recorded in Brisbane and mastered in Nashville, Brendan's debut album, 'Bootleg' featuring a collection of 10 unique original songs produced by Byron Short is targeted for release by October/November this year.
