Bio

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 songs that speak to the soul. As his moniker suggests, Brendan is a journeyman wordsmith, and his musical craft has been honed over the years by busking and performing live bar gigs.

Recorded in Brisbane and mastered in Nashville, Brendan's debut album, 'Bootleg' featuring a collection of 10 unique original songs written from 2013-2016 is set to be released later this year.

Gettin' on the same train as Brendan the Bard, because this cruisey tune sets the tone for every happy afternoon I've ever had. :)
