Bio

An Australian Folk-Rock/Roots artist born, raised and based in Brisbane. Brendan the Bard draws stories from his own life and weaves them into a rich musical tapestry - from heart-splintering ballads to body-swaying shanties to soft finger-picked little ditties. He delivers powerful yet vulnerable songs that aim to tap into the core of the listener's human experience. As his moniker suggests, Brendan is a journeyman wordsmith and his performance craft has been tempered over the years by the stages, streets and beer-laden pub floors of Brisbane.

Brendan's debut 9 Track Album 'BOOTLEG' is available now from all major music platforms. Check my facebook for more deets.

Started swaying straight a way to this one. Felt like I was on a ship going to war but in the best way...what I mean by that is that the feeling of longing runs deep in this song.
